Howdy Partner!

Hello, and welcome!

Where does the time go?  Thought I was at an age where I'm supposed to have more leisure who's havin' my share,  then?

Are you gettin' fed-up with my male/boy cards, yet?
Made another today......seems May, June, July, August, and September are mostly male birthdays in our clan....who made that happen, then?

I've used the same stamp set that went into my You're Super card (think it was last post)....and I'd forgotten the name of the set, if you remember....well, a lovely lady named Heidi put me was Billy from Pink Cat.......lovely set! Thank you, Heidi!

This one is for another grandson, Spencer, who is a week younger than Finlay....which means Spencer will turn 5 years old on 27th June.....he was born on my 55th birthday.......which makes me, er.........happy! Ha!

This is a photo of Spencer.......his party is going to be Cowboys themed........

How's that for cute?

Soooooo.....this is what I came up with......

The DP is from the All About Boys stack, with the green check coming from a Sizzlets pack that I'd forgotten all about, lol.......

Betcha can't guess how he's coloured up.........oh, I'm so predictable....PMs 'course........
Popped him onto two nestie labels, cut from the same DP.......up on pop dots......and added a bit of glitter ModPodge.....yeah, I know......a bit addicted to the stuff, heehee.......

Love the font on the sentiment........tried hand-cutting the label to match the above Nestie....didn't have one small enough for the tiny sentiment....does it look okay?  Added some brown striped baker's that......

This ickle fella was embossed in the corner of the woo-effect DP, so punched him out with a circle punch, and edged in green ink........oops, forgot to say that all the edges are inked!

I have a box of these cute wooden stars.....inked this one with green...glittered with MP, and stuck on a gold peel-off "S"....could be for "Spencer"....could be for "Sheriff" 
Suitable for a mini cowboy?  Would love to know what you think...heehee.

Thanks for droppin' in!

For the guys
Free and easy
