Giddy Up Partners......... It's time for a Showdown

Have you headed on over to the Outlawz this week?  We are having a party!  Head on over to the main page and read the rules.  There are so many awesome prizes up for grabs this week. But hey, I am here to talk about my challenge!!  I am on the Tuesday Color Challenge Team and we are running with the western them this week.  Check out our inspiration picture for today.
How perfect is that for a western theme.  OK, now onto my card.  I had fun with this awesome image from Guylou's Inimitability.  Meet Cowboy Chuck.  How cute is he!!  He reminds me of my time growing up on the farm in Northern Alberta.  My brother Stephen once roped a chair when he was on the back of our horse, you should have seen that horse go crazy.  The rope was tied to the horn of the saddle so the poor horse thought something was chasing it as the chair bounced behind it.  It looked funny, but gosh it was scary. So this little guy Chuck reminds me of my brother.  I gave him blonde hair like my brother had.  
I have to say, I had a lot of fun creating this card.  This paper is a pack I have had from Close To My Heart.  The word Celebrate was actually on one of the papers.  
And a view of the inside.

The prizes up for grabs in the Tuesday Challenge include 

1st Place - $15- Gift Certificate
2nd Place - $12- Gift Certificate
3rd Place - $10 Gift Certificate
I hope you will head on over and check out all the Challenges this week.  And have some fun partying with the Outlawz!
