Cowboy In Training

I've been in the grip of general living for the last 2 days. I finally grabbed some time in my studio off and on today and got this cute combo project finished. Before I go into details I want to do a little bit of clapping first. At The Paper Players I won the Headliner Badge for my vintage card Enjoy The Journey, since I don't feel I do vintage very well this is a tremendous win for me. Thank You so much ladies, and if you all haven't checked out The Paper Players hop over and add them to your challenge schedule, I bet you'll have some fun. Oh, Yes, don't forget to come back in the morning for my second week as Guest Designer at Tuesday Morning Sketches another great challenge blog with lots of talented ladies to glean inspiration from.
Now, on to the details on my combo project. Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges is having a really fun blog hop with some digi stamps up for grabs. This little cowboy in training on my card is a WOC digi. I'm finally feeling more comfortable with digis and if you're not familiar with them they are very affordable, easy to store(on your computer), and very fun to color. A lot of the digi companies give instructions on how to download them, so don't be afraid to jump in the digi water and take the plunge.
After you do the hop, the challenge this week is to create a card and a project to go with it. I chose to make a corner bookmark that I got the instructions for from Splitcoast Stampers. Once you get to their site just click on resources and it will take you to an array of projects.
I think you have until Friday to join in on the hop and challenge, hop on over for some rip roaring fun.
I'm actually entering this in 2 Challenges and I have to give some kudos to the girls at "Just Us Girls" Challenge . I've been playing in their challenges for awhile now and each week of the month they have a different kind of challenge. Keeps things very fresh and interesting, I think. I'm using their sketch for my card.
I've given you links to some fun challenges, so if you didn't know about them be sure to check them out if you like a good challenge!

so cool to see a bookmark for a boy ;-) I love how you have a tendency to have masculine projects (they are sometimes a bit hard to come by); this would be a great back-to-school gift for a special little guy...
