Ride 'Em Cowboy - GDT Card for MCH

Good afternoon.
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend.
My DH achieved his target to complete the half marathon he ran yesterday in under 2hrs - coming in at 1hr:59mins - phew!!!!
Unfortunately Rowena wasn't too well so she and Jamie missed out on their scrummy roast beef dinner :o(
Aaron and Jack did their best to make up for them though :o)

So whilst the dinner was cooking and John was running what else was I to do than have a wee play in my little crafty haven with some scrummy new stash from

Here's a quick make - but another crossed off my list of boy's birthday cards needed this month :o)

So as this card is for a 2 year old boy (and needs to be posted) I thought I would keep the embellies and details minimal.

Card Ingedients:
Image: Nellie Snellen 'Indian Boy on Horse' - MCH 
Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: Bo Bunny 'Prairie Chic' - MCH
Melissa Frances 'C'est La Vie' - MCH
Buttons: Bo Bunny 'C'est La Vie' - MCH
Sentiment Tags: LOTV

Before I go - look what arrived for me this morning.................................................

Whoooopp whooppppp!!!
 I 'HAD' to get one because something clunked off inside my Grand Calibur and it died last week :o(
Thank you my DH :o)

Thanks for popping by today - I appreciate your visit.
I'll catch up with you all after I get back from a hospital appointment with Jack.

Enjoy the rest of the day.
