Young John and a Sale!!

Howdy Pahdners!!  Today the CCEE Stampers are remembering John Wayne on what would have been his 103rd birthday.  I loved all of John Wayne's movies when I was growing up.  There was no one like the Duke.

Shirley has challenged the CCEE Stampers to make a western themed card in honor of John, so I pulled out my li'l cowboy from Rubbernecker.  I bet this is close to what the Duke looked like when he was a youngin'.

Speaking of Rubbernecker, you might like to know that they are having a Memorial Day Weekend sale with stamps being 40% off!  Now, THAT is a significant savings!!


I used these fun designer papers, one of which is jean-like and the other a bandana design.  I paper pieced Young John's jeans with the jean-like designer paper and colored the rest of him with Copic markers.

Please visit our CCEE Stampers blog to see the designs my friends made, as well check out the details on how to play along with us.

Thanks for ridin' by and have a rootin' tootin' day!

Thanks for the explanation of the belt - it truly does look like real leather. Our library has a huge section of John Wayne DVDs, we've been working our way through some of them :D. Can you believe I'd never seen The Quiet Man before!
