Cricut 360 Challenge #7 YEE HAW!!

Thanks for stopping by my humble blog! Todays Cricut360 Challenge was to do something with a western theme. Oh boy was this the hardest challenge for me. I'm not really into western things, don't own any cartridges with western items on it so WHOOO I really had to search for something on this one. I think it turned out pretty cute but....hey did I tell you how much I love the car decals and the cricut decals carts! Well I used my Cricut Expression 2 and cricut decals cart that is preloaded to make my little cowboy and cowgirl. I cut about 4 images for the girl so that I could cut it apart and add colors to various parts on her such as her dress, face etc. I used my cricut imagine to print a page of flesh colored paper since I didn't own any.

All the details are below for the sizes. Hope you enjoy it. I used my awesome BoNash glitters (no mess seriously and coverage is awesome!)

Cowboy and Cowgirl- Cricut Expression 2 Cricut Decals cut at 3.5"
Horse- Create a Critter cut at 3"
Glittered up parts with my BoNash Glitter
Googly eyes
Background paper is Cosmo Cricket (oh you know how I heart them) and its the Line "Jumping Jacks"
Red twine from the twinery
**I think I had said this before but Scenic Road had a grab bag of 50 double sided sheets of Cosmo Cricut for like $7.99. They always have grab bags and have one now with My minds eye paper (which I double heart them) you should check it out!
There is always a great prize to win so please visit cricut360 to join in on our challenges!

This weeks giveaway is a paper pack by echo park!!
