A Howdy doody sketch

TGIF everyone! :D Whew, so glad it is here. I hope you all have wonderful plans for the weekend? We have NO plans which is just okey dokey with me. :D
Since I've confessed my struggles with sketch challenges, I have decided to try them out more and make them my friend. :D
Here is the latest sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday's challenge blog:


Oooh, so pretty right? I love the way she designs her sketches, they look like digital cards! Arlana's team did a wonderful job with this so I gave it a try and came up with this:

Not bad at all, eh? I was so happy that Marie from The Greeting Farm gave us the green light to show her new DP called Dirty Rodeo. Gotta love that name! It will be available on the 15th for purchase. :D
I made this card for yesterday's TGF blog lineup and then added the flower to follow the sketch's details a bit more. I love brown and blue together, these are the same hues in Isiah's room so I think I'll try my hand at a framed picture.

When I first stamped horsie on the oval, he looked a bit too formal. So I tried it again on a tilt and thought it looked better. I think I'll make another version of this and put Howdy 'Neigh'-bor as we have a family that just moved in next door. LOL!
Okay y'all have a wonderful Friday, you hear? Stay safe and happy, tomorrow is MSB's latest challenge that I came up with. Uh oh. ;)
*Love and Aloha*
