Now, now, now, now once upon a time in the west...

Howdy, folks! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are getting back into the swing of things today. We're celebrating around here...it's Caleb's 9th birthday! So we spent last night baking and decorating cupcakes, which I'm taking to his class here in a few minutes. I thought I'd upload this card, which was featured on Alma's blog a couple weeks ago.

Isn't it the cutest? All of the images on this card are from the It's a Western Thing set, which I love love love! First I stamped Sprinkle and Poochie on my white cardstock. Then I masked them and stamped the little town in the background, and then colored the whole scene. I really love how it turned out. It was quite a bit of work, but worth it, I think.

And here's how I finished off the inside:
I realized when making this card how addicted to Kraft cardstock I've become. I have totally run out of my whole stash! So Mr. Postman has been stalked all last week and this week...he better bring me some more soon! *grin*

Well, I gotta do a cupcake run, so I'll chat with you later! Have a fabulous day!
