TCPTUES54--I'm Still Hip

Well, howdy pardners! I'm here again, boot-scootin' around and kicking off my new job as an official monthly Hipster Hostess With The Mostess for the TCP Tuesday Stamp Challenges (last week, I was just fillin' in for Jen). I'll be roundin' up my herd of rubber and picking a Cat's Pajamas stamp for us to use in this challenge once a month. (But don't forget about the other weekly TCPTUES challenges for the other weeks!)
This week's challenge is to use ANY stamp from the "HAVIN' A POW WOW" set.

I chose to use cowhand Ronnie here and a sketch from MFT. I added a clear star embellishment and it looks like Ronnie needs to brush up on his ropin' skillz as he got a little tangled up with that star! But that's understandable. He has on his felt Resistol hat made from 100% natural beaver and he doesn't want to get it dirty! Down here in Fort Worth (pronounced Foat Warth if you're from here), that's what the cowboys wear when they put on their best duds. Maybe he's going to Billy Bob's to ride the mechanical bull? Nah, not Ronnie--8 seconds is nothing to him. He wants to set the night on fire. Now, cowboy up and play the challenge with us!!

We hope you get to play with us. Here's the details on how you can be a part of the action:
1. Each a week one of The Cat’s Pajamas DT members will host a challenge.
2. The challenges will vary {stamp, color, theme, sketch, etc.}
3. You will have until {this} Saturday night to complete the challenge.
4. Link your project on this week’s hostess’ challenge announcement. This week you will link your project that you have posted on your blog or in the SCS gallery by adding a comment and link on this post, making sure your link is correct and posting it by midnight Saturday, April 18th.
5. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}
6. There will be one winner each month. They will be deemed that month’s Swankiest Stamper and get $25 in Cat’s Cash {money to spend on the TCP site!}.
7. When uploading to SCS, please use the keyword TCPTUES54 for this challenge.
8. Alma will post the entries from the week the following Monday on her blog.
9. The newly crowned Swanky Stamper will be announced on the First of the Month and have his/her winning entry posted on The Cat’s Pajamas website where he/she will reign for the entire month!
10. HAVE FUN!!!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Stamp an image repeatedly as a border and extra detail. Be sure and stamp the center image first and work your way out to each edge. If it turns out that some stamp off the edge of your cardstock, that's ok. It will look like you meant to do that. I promise.
