Hello!
Thanks for stopping in today!

So. You'd think that since my favorite color is purple that I would have a great stash of purple paper. Wrong. It is not easy to find purple paper. I mean REAL PURPLE. Not lavender. I have lavender. But this fun cow just seemed too boisterous for lavender! This is one of my new High Hopes stamps and I really wanted to use it. I finally settled on this designer paper that comes pre-glittered...but it really wasn't the right shade of purple. :( ugh. ugh. ugh.
This is another card that I really don't like. :( I really didn't want to even post it. But how can I not have a card for my own card challenge and my own birthday themed one at that!? It didn't help that I didn't start working on this card until 9:30 ish last night (Wednesday night). Well, the good news is that the talented Inspiration Team came through and made some GORGEOUS cards! At least I am wise enough to surround myself with a creative crew! ;) So make sure you check out their blogs and leave them a little comment love! They deserve it!

I hope that you will participate in this weeks 3 Clover Thursday challenge!


Have a Jolly Thursday!

How fun is that cow! I have a thing for cows?? Not sure what it is, lol, but I think they are so cute in the "rubber stamping world". That and hedgehogs. Anyway this card is really cute.

The card is great though I agree it is hard to find the right shade of purple pattern paper! The card is wonderful though...it truly is.
