I'm Later for the Tea Party!!!

It seems that I am going to be terribly late for da Mudder's Teapot Tuesday Challenge but I have been sooo busy finding a job for Curt...Alicia Cow's brother. Curt missed his sister so much that he traveled all the way to California but he needed a job real bad. Since he is a tiny little cow, being a famous stunt cow is out of the question so I contacted my friend Cookin Connie and she has agreed to give him a job ....da Mudder will be sooo happy!!!!
The adorable image from Cookbookin Clear Stamps from Stamper's Dream was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, colored with copics, and a glitter pen was used on the beater metal. The background with "Cookin Connie" is from Webster's Pages Sweet Cherry Pie Petite Papers...the wood flourish, bling, and ribbon finish it off.
I hope Curt behaves himself...if he keeps his horns to the grindstone, he may be able to make a good living!!!
Stamps: Cookbookin Clear stamps
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Vanilla, Webster's Pages

I made this card for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast. I also made this card for two DDC (Double Dare Challenge) challenges....I am only behind in one, now!!! Julia's challenge this week is to make a punch flower found here on Mercy's blog. The second challenge was hosted by Charlene the first week in January...yikes!!! We were to use faux tile. You can find all the challenges here in the challenge forum. The bird from Clear Dollar Stamps Peace for the Journey set was stamped with Almost Amethyst three times, cutout, and adhered with pop dots. The faux brick, the flower, and the background papers are all from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush.
