March Inspirational Challenge

Howdy Pardner!!

So glad you joined us today.  This week we're celebrating Cowboys.  Everything about cowboys hollers masculine.  From their jingling spurs to their ten gallon hats.  Their six shooters to their roping lassos.  They have big hearts and look really good when they ride up on their white horses.  

Our sponsor this week is the fantastic PaperTemptress.    You can find all of your crafting paper needs here.  From the standard cardstock to your drop dead goregous linens.

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it (Yeah, threw a little Mission Impossible at ya there.), is to use the colors and elements in the photo below to create a masculine card or project with a cowboy in mind.  

Your prize for winning the challenge is a $20 gift certificate to PaperTemptress!!!  

Everyone has a little cowboy in them.  Let's see how the Dudette's and our one Dude can cowboy up.

Dawn has created a serene scene with Cactus Kirk, awesome papers and a great charm with a cool font for her sentiment.

Ruth used CowPoke Cal and one of the accompanying sentiments for a great birthday card with kraft paper and gold stars. 

Anne used a lot of twine (along the edges of the card, the star and Cal's hat band) on her great six-shooter card with CowPoke Cal, bright color cardstock and silver six-shooters cutouts.

Rodeo Randy is the center piece of Tammy's card with fabulous papers, textures and funny sentiment.  

Cactus Kirk is back in Kevin's cowboy creation with gold stars and cool green gingham paper.

C Bizkit is having a hard time remembering the hill in Michelle's great birthday card with brown twine, great paper choices and a super layout.

Looks like Deputy Dave is having a swinging good time in CG's beautiful card with Deputy badge accents.

One of this month's guest designers, Crafty Girl, created a great birthday card using CowPoke Cal and some dimensional stars.

Sharon, our Aussie guest designer, proves that cowboys aren't only in America with her cool card using Super Trooper Tripp, deputy badges and lasso.

Now it's your turn to prove you can cowboy up!!  Follow the rules, link your cowboy creation using the InLinkz tool below before March 27th at 8 PM EST and you could be the winner of the $20 gift certificate from

The Rules

1. Use the inspirational photo above and the Dude and Dudette creations to get your mojo moving.
