I like this version the best! I'm not sure you need the chevrons on the left, and the stars could line up a little better with that line of text. I'm not even sure you need the "meet our littlest partner" - Howdy may be enough. Still loving that lasso!!!

Comments and feedback welcome. I revised the first version by taking out the horses and limiting the fonts. I thought the red and white looked to much like a holiday card so I redid the colors.

This is such a cute idea, and I LOVE your lasso and heart. I think you need to simplify your design a little, though...I would only use two of your fonts (I like the one used for "HOWDY"). I also thing your howdy should be bigger and the text at the bottom smaller. I would also take the horses out - I don't think they add anything to your design and eliminating them would make more room for a bigger "HOWDY!" and more empty space. I really think this will be great with some minor edits - that lasso is priceless!
