Rene's Cowboy Invitation

Hello Everyone,
I know we have been showcasing the Cri-Kits.com gel pens for the last week. But this post is for my Design Team assignment for PIO (Pile It On Challenge Blog). Our assignment was: A Little Bit Country and Rock N' Roll.

So On To The Project
Here is the invitation I made for a friend who is throwing a baby shower. The boots on the background paper are from the new Kah Wink E Dink digital stamp collection!
Here is a view of the inside of the invitation. I blurred out the personal information for this post. It really doesn't look like that :-)
Here is a close up of the cute Cowboy bear image yours truly created :-). I glued some hemp down for his lasso. I love how it gives a little dimension to the project.
So here are the challenges this project applies to:

PIO: A Little Bit Country and Rock N' Roll
DaisyDoodles: Western Theme
ABC Challenge: A is for August, The shower is in August :-)

Please feel free to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win the Cri-Kits.com gel pens. I will be back later today with the last in our series of projects and FREE files for our wonderful giveaway!

  16. Hi all,

    Gosh thank you so much for all the wonderful comments. To answer some of the questions: Selling the patterns I create. I am thinking about it. I just have to find an extra 4 hours in each day to get things going...lol! But hopefully soon. And no, I don't really have a method for tracking which blog challenges I enter. I tend to just go down a list I have and peek at each one to see if they are doing something I can "Pile On" to the project I have in mind. This can be REALLY time consuming because....ADD kicks in and I start looking at all the really creative stuff out there...lol. But it's always a lot of fun! Thanks again for commenting...Melin

  21. Wow! I found you on the Pazzles forum and have been checking out your blogs for the past two days. I am in awe of your talent. I love your Scrappin' My Faith items. How very, very beautiful.
