Rhinestone cowgirl: A Drunken Stampers Challenge
Sounds odd, I know, but remember that when I was a kid the world revolved around Smokey and the Bandit. So, you were the slap sticky Sheriff, the runaway bride, the player in a sports car or the truck driver.
Now that you've read all of that you might think my trucking aspirations seem even less appropriate: How is it that I identified with the skinny guy driving the big rig?
Because, my friends, he was the only one with a dog!
If the Bandit's sidekick had been a big black lab, or the Sheriff's chase car came with a droopy-faced hound dog: Well, honestly things wouldn't be much different except I'd be here now telling you how I wanted to be a criminal or a Sheriff.
Luckily some young girls have bigger dreams, and awful big boots to fill: They are our Rhinestone Cowgirls, and the focus of this week's Drunken Stampers' challenge!
Look at that ... I got to the point in less than 175 words!
So, I lucked out and found this adorable "cowgirl" over at The Graphics Fairy (have you been by yet to visit with Karen? You'll love her!).
One bit later, after adding an inked and embossed chipboard frame, colored-pencil highlights, grunge paper boots and a silver star brad ... Yeehaw! A future Reno Rodeo Queen!
Give us a look at your own little butt kicker before Friday, March 4 at midnight!
