Yahoo! Yippee! A Bugaboo Freebie

Okay, I'm beginning to catch up...still waaaaaaaaaaay behind...and that's not because I've been eating too many cream buns, although the behind could do with slimming down a bit!
Here's my latest 'practise' card I've made using the Friday freebie from Bugaboo, AKV World Kids! It won't be there long so go grab it! You'll find more 'World flags' in the store! At the moment they have A Stella Sketch and Anything But A Card Challenge and a couple of other challenges going on!
I've now found about four different ways of getting that little bug bear over- lay onto my card, (see last card) and each time I forget how I did it! (PaintNet seems to be the quickest as long as I remember to save it as a jpeg...otherwise blogger doesn't like it...fuss pot!!)
I've made an easel card. (I guess you can see that!) First edged the card with a black Promarker. Then added the cowboy into WORD, copied him a few times, played around with the sizes until I had two together and they looked like they do on the card...copied the larger cowboy a couple more times, printed them all out, coloured with ProMarkers, cut out the square and layered it with red, blue and black. 3D-ed the larger Cowboy..cut off his head and hands (I'm sooo mean) then added another body, head, hat, neckerchief and flag...
The paper's I've used are once again, my own using Promarkers. I've used a border punch folded up to help hold the easel in place. The stars are punched out (Punch from Hobby Craft) and also coloured with Promarkers and I've added a bit of brown raffia....I did draw a cactus but it looked silly so I took it off! No sentiment at the moment, til I know what it'll be used for. I did think Howdy Partner, Yahoo! Yippee! Maybe you can think of something! (My brain's sore!) That's it! Have some challenges in mind, just check I'm not too late for them before I add them...back later...night night...

    You could be corny and say 'Howdy Birthday' lol, or it could be a 4th July card perhaps.
