Patriotic Colors /show your Pride

Cowgirl and horse


The sad thing is I found this challenge hard to do. We had certain images to work with and I thought this one would be the best. This is For Fun Challenges Blog. This weeks challenge is Patriotic colors/show your pride. How American can you be from the old west. This week our sponsor is The Digi Doodle Shop - they have a wonderful variety of images, and great monthly specials! This month May 25% off Spring Floral images, and a free variety pack (4 great images) with your $5.00 purchase!




  1. The Digi Doodle Shop (a very creative mother and daughter team), began over three years ago, making digital scrapbook kits. Soon followed kits available commercially, and then came digital stamps.
    They hope that their stamps inspire creativity, and bring you much joy. They aim to please, so if you can't find something you want, they would love to hear from you. They love to bring someone else's vision to life, So we challenge you to create with PATRIOTIC COLORS ... our design team created these beauties to inspire you....

I’m so proud of our Men and Woman that are serving our country. I can not say enough about our SOLDIERS and what they have done for our country. With MEMORIAL DAY COMING THIS WEEK END WE NEED TO REMENBER ALL THE SOLIDERS AND WHAT THEY HAVE GIVEN UP SO WE CAN HAVE A FREE COUNTRY.

I did what is call a RECESSED WINDOW CARD and here is the link if you want to make one. My image that I used is called “Cowgirl and Horse”. I did it really simple because I did not want to take away from the image. I really like the image but it was hard to work with for a Patriotic theme, I would of liked to have had something that was toward that theme. But you take what you get and work with it.

Here is the close up of my image. I did make it 3D. I colored it with Copic markers. The fence E21, E23, E25, E27. Face E13 and E00. Hair E33, E31, E30, E50. Hat, Shirt, Belt and Boots R22, R24, R27, R29. Jeans and Jacket B41, B45. Grass YG61, YG63, G85, G29. Ground E42, E43. Horse C1, C3, C5, C7. C9. I did use a little white and I’m still not sure it I like that.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my card. I do have to tell you that this is my last challenge with For Fun Challenges. It has been fun and all the girls have been really fun to work with but I have decided to take some time for myself this summer. That does not mean that I will not be putting cards on my blog, I still have my other DT that I’m on. Also I wanted to tell you I put a link on the top of my blog for the Red Cross if you want to help the people that have been hit with all those Tornadoes down south, all you have to do is click on it and it should bring you to The Red Cross. God Bless all the people that live down their they need all of our prayers and money if we can do it.
