Yeee-Hawww for Karen's Doodles!

It's Monday again (already!).  It seems like I just posted for a Monday and here we are again!!!  Sometimes it feels like '50 First Dates' or the movie where the guy lives Christmas over and over and over...lol!  Thankfully, there is enough variety in our days so we don't all go bonkers!

Do you have some months where it seems like EVERYONE is having a birthday?  My goodness... they all just kinda crept up on me!  To make matters worse (only worse on my freak out scale...) my sister and her family will be visiting this weekend.  Normally, that would be a wonderful thing (and still IS) but I just realized as I was making this card for my nephew's birthday that I would also need a gift - duh!!!  Now don't be too hard on me just yet.  His birthday actually isn't until June 9, so I was doing really good getting his card done this early : )  BUT, my sister's birthday is this Friday and I haven't made her a card or gotten a gift - BUT (hee hee!) I did make my friend Vickie a card and will give it to her on Friday - BUT I didn't get a card done for Deborah... Oh my!  How do you keep everything straight and get it all done too? lol!!


I've been thoroughly enjoying making girly cards, so I really wasn't looking forward to making this one, but for a card without lace and pearls and flowers, I think it turned out nice.  This one's for Karen's Doodles US Challenge.  This week we'd like to see stitching on your cards.  You might even win FREE images from Karen's Doodles!  Today I've used Rootin' Tootin' Cowboy which you can find Here.

 I used this fab sketch from Sketch Saturday.

He's cut out with both his head and hat glued on a second layer.
