a Friday challenge

I had to find something to do to pass the time last night without my hubby here...so I decided to do Taylor's Friday cupcake challenge. Although as you can see I went a slightly different direction than cupcakes!! I really need to stock up on some cupcake stamps though cuz I LOVE cupcakes!!! I inked up my bronc buster guy and embossed him with black powder. I did lots of sponging and distressing...I always seem to do that when I use this set cuz cowboys just seem to give off that very cool, dusty & distressed look! I added black brads that I sanded down a little and added some twine and made it into a lasso. I left the sentiment off so that I can add one when when I need it. Thanks for coming by today! I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
