I Should Have Been a Cowboy........


I am liking these clean sketch challenges at Freshly Made Sketches just fine!  Spice Cake DSP and a combo of stamps from Easy Events made putting this card together a breeze.  This card is to say thanks to my Cousin Cindy who managed to get second row seats for my daughter and me this week at the Toby Keith concert!  But we never even sat in those seats - we were dancing the whole time!  We were so close to the stage that we were even ahead of the big screens on each side of the amphitheater.  About half way through the concert Erin received a text from her brother - who was home watching opening night football - that said:

Receiving texts from friends at the concert that say you two keep appearing on the big screen.  Don't act like idiots. 

That kid sure has a way with words!  My apologies to all the guys out there who were hoping for a hot girl in a cowboy hat on the big screen and got me instead................
