Peachy Keen Stamps :: Sketch Challenge 46

Today I made this card for my nephew using create a critter for the cow and the barn.  I used Old West Cartridge to make the sign.  I used the Hide contour feature to hide the word BARB -E-CUE.  I also used Wobbles to put the cow into motion.  I know my nephew is only 2 but I think he will have fun see this little cow wobble.  He lives so far away  I love talking to him on the phone.  The sentiment I love Moo is from My Pink Stamper More punny-licious  stamp set. The cows face is from Critter face set at Peachy Keen Stamps.  The cow is larger than life because it is for a 2 year old.  Just keep that in mind :)

Valentine Banquet

Happy Sunday Morning!  whew what a busy weekend this has been!  Friday night and Sat morning our church hosted a tele marriage Seminar.  It was great and believe me I was not in the mood for it, but glad we went. Then Sat evening we had a Valentine Banquet to honor the Widows of the congregation.  This was the first time for us to have it at this church.  We had 5 widows come out of 15.  I am so excited.  I just love this event.  Paul and I have been doing it for about 9 years now.  It is kind of our Valentine gift to each other.  Here is a picture of the invitation I made to invite them all.  I just love the peachy keen stamps and my cricut.  I can't imagine doing a project with out them.  My husband also got me 5 more cartridges.  $103 total shipping and tax.  Great deal over at custom crops!  Well I must run.  Got to leave for church in 20 mins.  Hope everyone has a blessed Sunday in Fellowship with your Christian family!

Throwback Thursday Challenge

For this weeks challenge we are suppose to use "Just Because" & "Wild Card" cartridges  & make sure your card has a "Stamped Sentiment" on it.  I don't have the "Just Because"  So I went with the "Wild Card"  I used the Tri-fold card and the bird and branch is also a feature on this cart.  The stamped sentiment is on the second leg of the tri-fold.  Not my favorite card but part of these challenges is thinking outside the box right?  Not to mention day 3 stuck inside and missing work all because of a little "ice".  Have a blessed day!
