Welcome to day ONE of MFT Teasers!  Today, we're showing a little sneak of Howdy and Western Backgrounds.

I started with a layout from I Spy Sketches and inked up the horse image in Memento Rich Cocoa and stamped it on some Blink of an Eye 6x6 paper for My Mind's Eye.  I cut it out with a Circle STAX Set 1 Die-namics die and layered it over new Fishtail Flags Layers STAX dies.  The tag is made with one of the new Howdy Frames Die-namics and then I stamped the star image in the same rich cocoa ink.  I tied it all together with some Hemp Cord.

I also decorated the inside:

I stamped the barbed wire image twice along the bottom of the paper and then made a little sign for a special birthday.  I cut out the sign with the Howdy Frames Die-namics and then stamped one of the Western Backgrounds stamps in rich cocoa ink, then stamped the sentiment over the top in Brilliance Graphite Black ink.  I used some hemp cord to hang the sign from a thin strip of Hot Fudge Card Stock

Be sure to head on over to the MFT Blog for a complete list of all the designers playing along in today's Teaser.
