Yee Haw Cowboy!

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday, thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a great Mother's Day weekend! We finally had some nice weather without the rain, and I was able to plant the lovely flowers I bought at the High School greenhouse this week, along with the other flowers my DS brought me home for Mother's Day.  I still have a few left plant, here's a few photos



The beautiful blossom is from a Passion Vine, we haven't moved those outside just yet, but after I took this photo, the flower closed up, so hopefully we'll be seeing a Passion Fruit soon!








Okay, the real reason you stopped by....I'm fashionably late for the Gingersnap Creations Cowboy/Cowgirl Challenge, but better late than never right!  I used the Faux Tooled Leather Technique from a past issued of the TJNL along with the fab Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Cowboy Boots, and Multi Step Cowboy Hat (sentiment).  For inspiration I used CPS Sketch #217.

Would you believe that I haven't used these boots yet. Maybe your fabulous work intimidates me. I must use them soon.
