Howdy Partner!

Isn't this the cutest image?  A couple of months ago I came across a blog with some adorable precious moments images.  HELP... I cannot find Yvonne's blog now, I believe she is located somewhere in Scandanavia, and I wanted to share this card with her since she pointed me in the direction of the website that has these images. (Yes I am afraid I am trying to follow too many blogs...but there are so many good ones!)
Update: I have since learned this image was copyright protected and lifted without permission of the author to the website I obtained it from. After publishing this post I later became well versed in copyright law and realized this image must have been shared illegally.
I have had this card finished for a couple of weeks but with Easter never had the opportunity to post it.  I used the patterned paper from the Basic Grey Origins line, and really didn't add much else, other than some buttons, twine and sakura jelly roll for the faux stitching. I think the border punch I used was a Martha Stewart, and a bosher from Bazzill to help the easel card stand up. Oh and of course my Copic Markers!!

I thought I would enter this in some challenges.
All Sorts Challenge wanted stitching Faux or real
Krafting Kimmies Challenge wanted One for The Boys
Crafty Ann's Challenge wanted to Let the Sun shine in
Stamp Something wants Something Layered
Cute Card Thursday would like any kind of texture
Your Next Stamp also wants stitching faux or real
Copics Creations wanted Black Hair
Papertake Weekly Challenge wanted Cutie Pies (I think this little guy fits)
Anything goes at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge
Thanks for stopping by, and happy Sunday!
