A Western HOWDY for Independence Day

Happy Birthday, USA!! I hope that my American friends are enjoying a safe and festive Independence Day today, wherever you may be!

I'm popping in very quickly to share a card appearing over on the DeNami Design blog today.


I made this for my horse-loving daughter's half birthday recently. She is a Christmas-season baby, so for years now we've celebrated her half birthday in the summer with cake and presents (rather than on her actual birthday in December) to avoid overload at an already tending-toward-excess time of year. I teamed up the ultra-adorable Cowboy Chickie, Howdy sentiment, and a Ruby Red Boutique Button with some delightful digital elements from the Giddy Up {Boy} collection from Carta Bella (available at JessicaSprague.com).

Thanks for dropping by today!
Emily

Happy July 4th Emily! I hope you and your family are enjoying the day and the weather is cooperating. :)

Love your pretty card. The sheriff chick is so cute. Happy 1/2 birthday to your daughter! I totally get why you celebrate in the summer months. Our son's was Dec 29th. A lot of red and green decorations in all the pictures! lol

This card is very cute! I have a cut file very similar to the horse on your card and I've been cutting out horses for my daughter to color ~ she really loves horses too! Happy 4th of July!

Just so adorable. Love that brown horse. Bet your daughter loved it, too.
We had a July 4th washout. Rain, rain, go away.
