This here is a birthday card for my friend Jill. She looooooves cowboys! Her birthday's not until November, but hey, at least I'm ahead of the game. I've been holding onto this postcard with the cowboy for at least 13 years, and now I know why! And the card qualifies for 5 challenges! That's gotta be a record for me. The challenges are:

1. Design Dollies: colours this week are Royal Blue, Teal/Aqua, and Orange
2. Some Odd Girl: ribbons and rub-ons
3. JUGS: cowboy-inspired
4. Our Creative Corner: use sketch 28

5. Pile it on: OK, I just realized that my card doesn't meet the requirements for this challenge, but I've already linked up to all the other sites with this title on my post. So I guess it's not a fiver, but still, the effort was there.

So, I hope Jill's not reading this blog, otherwise the surprise will be ruined. And I hope her husband's not too jealous of the handsome cowboy I'm sending her!

Supplies (all CTMH): White Daisy cardstock, Splendour level 2 patterned paper

Other: Cosmo Cricket rub-on, unknown ribbon, postcard
