Yee-haw!

Howdy folks!

It's Monday morning and that means I've got a Monday Mania challenge card to share. This week the cutie patootie miss Jenny V. is hosting and she wants everyone to 'make a scene' with their cards. :)
When Jenny filled me in on the theme of her challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do. You see, I've had this sheet of Creative Imaginations paper for at least a year and I always thought that it would be fun to pair with Wild West Anya, but I just never got around to actually putting the two together. So no more excuses, it was finally time to cut into that paper and get it on a card! To give the scene a bit of depth I glued the covered wagon strip right on the card and then I fussy cut the cactus and prairie dog strip and pop dotted it above the wagons along with Anya. I did also alter Anya up just a bit by wiping away her open mouth with a baby wipe before stamping then drew in her new cocky little smirk... I wonder if she is thinking about ropin' that prairie dog? Wrong kind of doggie Anya! LOL ;)

Aren't scene cards so much fun to make? I love telling stories with my stamps! And we hope to see you all join the fun this week as it will be the last Monday Mania over at CA&Friends. Yep, Jess is changing up the format and a new Mystery Monday challenge will be starting up before ya know it!
