Welcome to the Claudia and Company October Release...

First let me introduce Cowboy McCoy....
You may have seen a few sneak peeks of this little guy already, a new Puddle Jumper by the talented Lori.
He is available to buy today from Die Cuts R Us with the rest of the October releases.
So I teamed him with this yummy October afternoon papers can just imagine him playing in the field beside a fab red wood barn... are you there? LOL!

Stamps: C&Co puddle jumper: Cowboy McCoy;

Now for the next fabby image meet...
Mr Smiles...
This cutie has been designed by Jane's Doodles
For a bit of fun texture I have covered cardstock with liquid applique and heated to create a suede effect impossible to photograph of course, so hope you can see it!
The teeth I have coloured with sakura white pen goes on easily and the eyes I stamped separately and paper pieced them. With the remaining blue suede I stamped and cut the fun arrows pointing directly to the smile sentiment also included on the Mr Smiles set!!!
Hope he helps you smile too...
