Howdy Christmas!

howdychristmas

Good morning, friends!  I’m starting to think about my own Christmas cards now and decided that this week’s Waltzingmouse Sketch was the perfect inspiration for Dad’s Christmas card.  I don’t have the latest Yonder Star set so I paired Back in the Saddle with Compliments of the Season to create a Western themed Christmas card.  I think Dad will get a kick out of it ;)  So no “bells” and whistles on this one.  Dad’s a pretty Plain Joe kind of guy so I kept things low key (minus the sweet twine bow and stitching! HA!).  Thanks fer stoppin’ in!

I love the western sets and you really do justice to them with the choices in your card. What a great masculine holiday card. The stitching at the top is my favorite with the rough edges. Adorable!
