Keep calm and ride on


     Wow we're already starting a new month this year.  First day of the month and first Monday which means it time for a new challenge at There She Goes.  This challenge is being brought to you by one of our new Trendsetters, Tracy Valure and she wants to see a project with a man/boy/son, etc. masculine theme.
     I've inked up a couple of stamps from the "Giddy Up" set and pulled out the bits and pieces that are left of my Cosmos Cricket "Wanted" paper pad to create my western manly style card.
     We'd love to have you come play along with the challenge.  TSG stamps are not required and there is a $5.00 gift voucher to the TSG store up for grabs for the winner.
  We've also started a new challenge over at the Catered Crop and Linda wants to see projects using twine.  You just can't have a western theme cards without some kind of rope can you.  LOL
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Amusing Challenge--anything goes
