Morning girls
Well we've the wet stuff again today. I knew it was too good to last.  Mr Sunshine doesn't keep his hat on very long here in Scotland:(
Anyway, I don't often show any commissioned cards on me blog but I thought I'd show you  this one.  The brief was 'It's for a male named Big D' who dresses like a cowboy and will be 70.  The mind boggles!!!  Do you get asked for silly things too?  Or is it just my luck?
Straight away I thought of this image from Karen's Doodles, then I remembered that Tracy did a little cowboy set when she's Creative Cottage, perfect!  I was sorted easier than I thought I'd be:)

I wanted a distressed feel to it so inked the edges of all the papers and backers.  Once I'd that all sorted I cut the the letter with my cricut, added the tiled letter on top and I'd the basis of my card.  Once I'd coloured the image with my copcis I pop dotted him on, added the sentment, bashed a couple of metal snaps up a bit and the job was done.
I'm quite happy with how it turned out.  I just hope Big D whoever he is likes it too:)
