TJ, aka Teddy Jr.

Hello again!  Awww, a Saturday morning.  Do you like Saturday mornings?  As a kid, my Dad would wake us early, put on LP records like Doris Day and Tijuana Brass, and we kids would clean house.  Nice memory.  Speaking of memories, my Baby Cakes (little sister) had a teddy bear that she kept for years; I think she was like 4 when she got him.  Anyway, her poor home burnt to the ground and Teddy along with it.  She was so, so sad about that Teddy.  I made her a crocheted Teddy, and we named him TJ, for Teddy Jr.  There could only be one Teddy.   This card is for Baby Cakes, a colored up hello from me and TJ.  Really the image name is Billy Cowboy and he is pulling double duty as my Design Team Fat Page.  Billy Cowboy is from one of our fantastic sponsors,  Meljen's!  They have the cutest images, don't you think?  Here is TJ...

Nothing special about making Billy up...just colored him with Prisma Pencils and OMS and covered chipboard stars with DP.  Added silver star brads with the prongs cut off for his spurs and another star for his badge.  Put a feather in his hat and did up a tag and bow, wrapped all up in some cord.  YeeHaw!  That's it!  Meljen's images are so good that one doesn't have to do much to make a nice special card!

At Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude this fortnight, beside Meljen's, we have another great sponsor- StitchyBear!  Two wonderful sponsors and our theme is Anything Goes!  Isn't that something?  AND, you can enter your same card in our ATC's and Cards with Attitude Challenge also.  Three great sponsors for you over there!  And our Top 3 winners at both sites.  We hope to see you pop over to both challenge blogs (links are on the side-bar, upper right) and take a peek at what the other Design Team Members have to share with you.  Get inspired and enter our challenges!  We love seeing what you create! 

Adios, Amigo! My hope is that you will have those little blessings to brighten your day and you give a big Yee Haw yell for all to hear...go ahead, do it, it will feel so good!
