If you know me at all you will find it no surprise to see this stamp inked up and colored. Why it took me so long to get it is beyond me.....guess that thing called life got in my way for a few weeks. However, from the moment I first saw it on on the blog of some of the Flourishes Design Team members I knew it would find a home with me.
YES, I love it because it has a cowboy on it, but I also love it because it evokes a warm fuzzy feeling when you view it, whether it is colored or kept color free. Can't you just imagine the anticipation of this country family waiting for the 'perfect newly cut tree' to be pulled to the front door. The ornaments are out, popcorn has been strung......little hands are ready to decorate the tree. I bet there is a warm fire glowing in the hearth as well. A warm homey Christmas scene.
I want to just take a moment to thank the illustrator Lauren Pope for creating this lovely design and Flourishes for making it into a stamp.
After stamping this lovely image I used my Prisma color pencils - I heard that gasp just now, shock over my not using my oh so favorite Copic markers.

Mmmmmmm.....Mmmmmmm...cowboy delish Sistah. Your coloring sets off a glow for the heart, and I smile to think how close you are to your beloved Blanco. Wonderful creation. Lymi

Oh, Kush, I too loved this image when I first saw it, but now even more, since you have brought it "to life" in such a touching way - love the 'sun setting' in the late afternoon sky, and your warm colors - just like your heart ! Hugs!
