For my favorite Lil' Buckaroo

Ok, so I have to say, there is NOTHING on this planet that picks me up more than sweet baby hugs n smiles n giggles. My good friend's sweet little guy (who I sneak loves from when ever I can) will be 1 on the 17th. How time flies! Seems like just yesterday I was driving to the hospital to see his brand new face!
I have been just waiting for the perfect time to use this image from Bugaboo & thought it would be just right for his birthday card. I am SOOO happy with how this turned out!
I colored him in w/ pencils (I think I am starting to get the hang of it! lol) & went over the sunset & grass portions w/ my blender pen to get the colors to "bleed" together the way I wanted. I have never tried it w/ my pencil colorings, just chalks so I was pleased w/ how it worked. The sentiment is a sticker i found in my rat pile of stuff in my drawer & the DP is from my stash pile. I love the cowboy themed word paper & have been using it in small chunks to stretch it out.. It's almost gone so I will have to figure out where it came from so I can get more! (silly rabbit..I only got 1 sheet- one more reason to always buy in 3's!)
I am entering this wonderful b-day card on:
