Mytime's Color Challenge -- With Ethan!

Hi Everyone~

The sun is shining. WOW - it's been quite elusive here for much of the month, what a welcome change.

This week's color challenge features Ethan, from the WAY cool Weiman Wranglers set. I'm THRILLED with how well this set has sold...the stamping community is INCREDIBLE, my thanks goes out to all of you, Ethan is smiling down, I'm sure...which brings me to...I heard a funny knock knock joke the other day...

"Knock knock"
"who's there"
"cow say"
"cow say who?"
"Noooooo, cow's say MOO!!"

pretty good, right?

Here's the colors for this week's challenge :

I got this GREAT digital scrapbooking kit from Scrap Girls, called 'Cowboy' by Cheryl Barber...it's got a lot of fun elements, and GREAT papers...I printed one out to use on my card today. Also my sentiment is one of the embellishments (though I tweaked the color to make it match my project) here it is:

The sentiment says 'Cowboys don't bathe, they dust off'...I really liked that, and made Ethan a little 'dirty' by using a little creamy caramel ink on the end of a qtip.

The rest of the team has cooked up some GREAT stuff, so be sure to stop by and show them some love! Here's the links:


Don't forget, we'd love to see what YOU do -- play along, and link on the Mr. Linky on Lauren's blog...

Thanks for stopping by-Have a SUPER weekend!!

Stamps: Weiman Wrangler digital stamps (Pink Cat Studio)
Ink: NONE - well, creamy caramel for the 'dirt'
Paper: Dark Chocolate, Really Rust, Digital paper (Cowboy by Cheryl Barber)
