You had me at HOWDY

Howdy friends,
Hope you had a lovely St. Patty's Day. We had a little get together at my crib with some friends for St. Patty's Day, but the awful weather kept some of our crew away :( It was raining like crazy & if it wasn't raining, the wind was blowing Dorothy to our neck of the woods! Ugh... but those who did brave the wild weather brought some most delicious grub! yuuuummy! So we ate, played a bit of Draw Something, watched some movies, & hung out.

I decided to ink up one of my new MFT goodies I just picked up & play along in a few challenges going on in the blogosphere:
Here's my card:
Ahhhhh!!! Isn't this little cowboy just adorable! I couldn't resist him & the little country charms from this month's MFT release.
Here's a closer peek:
 He's colored with Copics & paper pieced. I used leather-like paper from a Sizzix pad I picked up ages ago. It was *perfect* for my little dude's clothes. It's neat cuz it looks & feels like real leather! I also used the woodgrain fence die & cut it down the middle to create a gate opening that could open & close. I added a bit of twine for the rope. So fun to make :)

I used this week's MFT sketch:
and the colors from the color inspiration pic at the Play Date Cafe. The papers are from the Marrakech collection by BasicGrey.

My little dude will also be playing along with the following challenges: 
Totally Papercrafts: Male card
Anything Goes Challenge: #62 Boyz to Men

Thanks so much for peeking today. I'm off to catch the season finale of The Walking Dead :)
