Howdy Neighbor {retro sketch}

Hello and Happy Thursday. I had the day off work this morning. So, guess what I did? Yep, I made a few cards, cleaned the house, put some clothes away, and took puppy for  a walk. It was a good day. Oh, yeah....I made a pot of chili, too. YUM!

 I used this week's Retro Sketch#33 and Lisa Johnson's Howdy stamp set from MFT to make this friendly neighbor card. Yep,the New October Release stamps and Die-namics haven't left my desk yet! This set is so fun!

Links to all the products I used are listed below. 

I seriously LOVE that cow print background from LJD's Western Backgrounds.  I used it for the backdrop of my sentiment strip. I then added the "howdy neighbor" greeting in the navy ink. 

Following the sketch, I pulled out my Western Charms Die-namics and the round tag die from Howdy Frames Die-namics and hung them all with some burlap twine.

 I was itching to use the Sunflower Die-namics in a non-traditional color, so I did. I think it looks great no matter what color scheme you cut it from. 
Be sure to check out this week's sketch. They are always fun to work with.
