Shelly's Sketch and I've Been Tagged, again!!

I just wanted to let you all know that I have now been tagged with the E for Excellent Blog award three times!! I am so excited!!!! I was tagged first by Linsey Rickett, then by Silke Ledlow and finally by Sue Berker!!! You girls really know how to make a person feel wonderful!!! I have already nominated people when Linsey first nominated me, but I just wanted to let Sue and Silke know, that I appreciate it so much, it means the world to me!!! If you haven't checked out any of their blogs, you should, they are fantastic!!!!

On to my first card in days!!!! I haven't stamped since Saturday night or early Sunday morning, and I have been dying to do it!!! I got all my Valentine's ready and sent out this morning, so now I am free to stamp stamp stamp!! I really need to clean clean clean, but oh well, it's not going anywhere!!

Today's sketch challenge over on SCS was hosted by Shelly, aka Papermoon04, and what a fabulous sketch it is!! I just recieved my new My Favorite Things stamp sets, and I finally broke down and bought the Punny Farm set. I wasn't sure I loved it, and then of course, I kept seeing all the samples on SCS and slowly but surely fell in love with it!! At their last release party, I just had to get it. The base is 5 1/4x5 1/4 Certainly Celery. I stamped the sentiment from the Punny Farm set directly on the card. Then I took a piece of white, then black, then Certainly Celery dsp, for both the larger and the smaller of the two squares. The main image is done using Charmaine aka CharmWarm's tilt card tutorial. It is so cute cause the cow dances!!! I colored it in with SU markers and sponged some Bashful Blue for the sky. I love those funky black fibers and you know how I love my brads, so I had to toss some of those in.

Well, that is all for now!! Thanks for all of your support and comments!! Have a great day, and if your roads look anything like mine, be safe, it is SLIPPERY!!
