Y’all know how I’ve been wanting some images of cowgirls, right?  Well, I found some!!  When I went to StampAway a couple of weekends ago, the first booth I went into was Artful Illusions.  It’s my favorite booth and I spend most of my time there.  For those of you who attend the show . . . you know the one I’m talking about  . . . first floor, first booth when you walk in the door!

Friday night before the show, I was browsing the vendors who were going to be there and decided to check out some websites.  Surprisingly enough, Artful Illusions finally started a site and I was able to download the stamp catalog.  There, in the catalog, was a section  . . . Cowgirls . . . . oh my BADness, I was drooling!  Needless to say, my first stop I spent half my shopping funds and I purchased a few cowgirl images . . . along with some other things.

I found myself yesterday with no pressing time frames or deadlines . . . highly unusual actually!  It was a perfect time to break out some of my new rubber and have some fun . . . just for myself stamping!  It’s always the best creating process in my opinion.

Here’s what I came up with . . . a new wall hanging for my studio!


OH and what inspired this wall hanging along with the cowgirl images . . . Cosmo Cricket Wanted in 6×6 Mini Pads!  YES, you read correctly!!!!!!  Cosmo Cricket was brought back the Wanted paper and it’s in 6×6 pads.  I no longer need to hoard my Wanted paper . . . . so guess what?  I used it for the wall hanging.  You can bet your booty that I will be ordering a few pads of this paper from eclectic Paperie!

You can see my two new cowgirl images on the left.  They were stamped and embossed in black Distress Embossing Powder for that aged look.  The sentiment on the tag is a new set by Wendy Vecchi and Studio 490 that my friend Daisy brought me at CHA.  I added some Spiced Marmalade Distress Stickles to the flowers just for the heck of it and to add a little shimmer to the project.


I’m rather tickled with the whole project and love how it turned out!  Isn’t it great to do some FUN stamping!

That’s all for today . . . thanks for stopping by and remember . . .  life is short, take advantage of the adventures that come your way!
