Alota Cowboy

Hurraa, I am back and i did get my new VISA to stay in the USA :-) It was a long drive to Ottawa but it was worth it. Unfortunately we had a lot of rain so we were unable to do a lot of sightseeing during the wait til we could pick up my paperwork, but what i saw of the capital city of Canada was gorgeous. Iam still a small town European girl :-) and iam always impressed when i see these big cities.

I made this card because when Andrea set the Challenge for CCT i realized that i do not have i do not have any birthday cards. So i thought i start with boy birthday cards. In the new stamp set Alota just released are many very cute cowboy images plus so fabulous sentiments to go with. The sentiments look like a lasso :-) really cute. If you do like not want to get the entire set you can only buy singles.
Stamps: Sentiment and little cowboy are from Alota
Embellishments: Ribbon and hardware from Stampin up
coloring: Copics

Glad you got the Visa sorted out Claudia and that you are back blogging with us.
I love your new card, the cowboy is so cute and the sentiment and papers are fab. I received my Alota stamps on Thursday, fabulous service and great stamps. I've just uploaded a card made with the sofa stamp, thank you for letting me know where I could purchase it. Have a good day.
