Happy Birthday Cowgirl!

Monday, Monday . . . and this week is going to be full!  The exciting thing is that it ends with Stamping Around NH on Friday and Saturday!  I can't wait to get away and stamp the weekend away!

But first, it's Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday and I have a super fun card.  My Emma turns 8 next week (incredible I tell you!!) and she's decided she wants a "horse party."  It's funny how most young girls must go through a horse phase isn't it?  She's been reading a bunch of horse books, and watching horse movies, etc. I think she finally understands that we are NOT getting a horse! LOL!  So I thought I'd make her birthday card and I pulled out some of my Kitchen Sink Stamps to make it.

You know what I love about this card? The rope!  How cool is that?  It's from 3 Step Adornments! (Step 3 - Soft Suede (stamped off) (SU!), Step 2- Latte (Adirondack), Step 1 - Dessert Sand (Memento)). The stars are from Multi-Step Ornaments and Stars. (Step 3 - Summer Sunrise & Hisbiscus (Papertrey Ink), Step 2 - Dandelion (Memento) & Pretty In Pink (SU!), Step 1 - Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink) & Angel Pink (Memento)).  The "c" in cowgirl is actually the small horseshoe from Multi-Step Lucky Horseshoe. (Step 3 - Soft Suede (SU!), Step 2- Latte (Adirondack), Step 1 - Dessert Sand (Memento)).  The rest of cowgirl is made using Mix It Up! and for the Happy Birthday I did some shadow stamping using Hibiscus and Angel Pink. 

The pink gingham paper is more Jillibean Soup and I also used something completely new to me here, Co'ordinations paper.  Of course I've seen it before, but had never tried it for myself - it's very cool! The brown on this sheet sands away to light pink!

That's it for me today but please visit the other KSS crew members and have a great day! :)
