First card of 2011!!!!

 Yep this is the way I spent my New Years Eve nite.  Making a birthday card for my brother.  His birthday is towards the end of Feb. but after I saw the sketch at Our Craft Lounge Challenge #46 I had to make the card now.  It also gave me the perfect excuse to use a new set that I haven't used yet from them.  It is soooo cute.  It's called Eiei Hello.  If you have never see their stamps you have got to go by their site/store  and check out everything they have.  So many and so many different cute themes.   I have probably about 7 sets and haven't got to use them all yet.

As I was going through the challenges for this week I found three challenges that have the same color theme.

#1 - Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge #39  - Use the colors BLACK - WHITE - GREY

 #2 - Crafty Hos' Challenge - Photo Inspiration

#3 - Gingersnap Creations SP6: Once-in-blue-moon-ginspiration.    

 Now as you look at this card you might ask yourself - "What's up with the Cow?" 
 It must be a private childhood joke.  NOPE!  

Nothing at all I just have been wanting to use this set and for some reason never found the right time or reason.  Crazy huh?

 Other Challenges that I love and entering:

Sew Many Challenges #38 - New Things (my stamp set is brand new/never used)

Big Mamma Luvs Ya Glitter Graphics
