Holy cow...a thank you card and a few challenges too

Hi there

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Hubby and I hit IKEA to get some more storage for my craft room. Pretty soon I will have shelves lining the walls...I HAVE TOO MUCH STASH LOL! I still have more cleaning to do and another craft cube to put together but it's looking pretty good!

I did find some fun time to craft and create. It's far too hot and humid to do anything but stay in the nice cool house under a ceiling fan! I got some new stamps from Some Odd Girl that were begging me to ink them up - I LOVE THEM!

The current SOG challenge - Thank You Cards. You can never have enough of these, can you? I am a lover of all things bovine (organic and grass fed, of course), so when I saw super cute Mooey, I was inspired! Here is my thank you card - in Spanish! OLE'- LOL! (Must be the Latin influence from doing all of that Zumba...)

My 'Moo-chas Gracias' Card:

Mooey takes center pasture here! His spots are paper pieced with black & white polka dot paper and he is 'white-lighted' and colored with Copics. I embossed the polka dot paper with white embossing powder so I could fussy cut him out and I used a white Sharpie poster pen to give him some detail here and there. His eyes are dotted with black Enamel Accents.
He is popped up with dimensional adhesive on a circle embossed with polka dots. The sentiment is part stamping, part tiny ABC stickers. I decided to create a tri-fold card with a navy ribbon tie. I made it more 'country' with the red mat & blue gingham paper. I kept the overall design pretty simple. I haven't finished the inside of the card yet, but it will say something cow related - like 'you're the head of the herd'...or 'you're the cream of the crop'. :) 

I am also entering this into these challenges: 
The Paper Variety - Circles
Sketch N Stash Challenge 67 

Stuff I Used:
Stamps -  Some Odd Girl 'Mooey'
Cardstock - AMuse Studio - Sugar, Blueberry Gingham, Black/White Polka Dots / Stampin' Up Real Red
Copics - C00, C1, R01
Nesties - Circles, Scalloped Circles
Other Stuff - AMuse Studio Dots Embossing Plate, Navy Blue Ribbon (my random stash), Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type ABCs, Black Enamel Accents, Stampin' Up Dimensionals

Moo-chas gracias for stopping by today! :) I hope you are moo-ved to leave some love too.
