Cute Cowboy from Peggy Loves Vintage and Blog Hop Winner!

Happy Friday! I'm looking forward to a gloriously sunny weekend, how about you? When Peggy came out with her new adorable Cowboy, Cowgirl, and Little Warriors Cut Outs at Peggy Loves Vintage I couldn't wait to play. Besides wine, Livermore also has a strong Rodeo tradition and it's some big deal here in town. I decided to make a shape card using the Old West Cricut cartridge and welded 2 of the boots together in Design Studio. I embossed the boot details with the Tiny Mosaics Cuttlebug folder.

I had a hard time choosing which of the cuties I was going to pop on this card but finally settled on the little roper dude because he looked like he was having so much fun! I cut him out with my Curved Rectangle Nesties, inked around it and did a little stitching with some hemp. The sentiment is also cut from the Old West cartridge. I love my Vintage Peggy Loves CD's, but if you're in a hurry and know exactly the kind of image you're looking for the Cut Outs can't be beat. Peggy has a whole slew of them just begging to be downloaded so be sure to check them out. Also, visit the Peggy Loves Vintage Blog to keep up with the current happenings and also for some fabulous freebies from time to time.
I'm so excited I finally figured out how to snip the Random org. thing WITH the number AND the comment by the winner and post it to my blog. WOOHOO! So without further ado, the BBTB2 Blog Hop WINNER of the $30 gift certificate to Custom Crops is.......number 29.
