Guitar Dude

     It's my brother's birthday and I have 5 brand new stamps that I got from Lili of the Valley for Mothers' Day. Last year our family reunion was right here in Texas at a dude ranch. My brother, Terry, truly enjoyed the horseback riding. What I remember was that he played guitar at the campfire and sang for us. This card is for our "Guitar Dude".

     I started out with Lili of the Valley's sketch #16. You'll notice that I ended up using the sketch side with a 90 degree turn.
