Good morning's Color Challenge on Splitcoast uses 3 of the new in colors but wouldn't ya know I don't have a single new color yet so I had to improvise!! This is also for da Mudder's Teapot Tuesday challenge. It seems Moe the cow who is really slow, went to Auctioneer school and will have his audition for a job soon. He has some pretty stiff competition from Ramblin Ricky and Jabberin Joe. The teapotters have a mission to show Moe how to speed up. We have been challenged to make 2 fast fancy doo dads, no embellies, no flowers, ribbons, pearls....yikes!!!!! No in colors and no embellies...what's a girl to do???? I dug out my only cow image from Very Punny and went to work!! After I popped up the little cows and the sun I reread the rules and noted we were to make a FLAT card....jeeezzzzzz!!!! Please don't tell da Mudder or I will have to come to the party through the back door!!! I'm still trying to smash down my pop up's!!!

A great big CONGRATS goes out to Toni (Ravengirl) for being chosen this weeks Featured Stamper on Splitcoast!!! Toni's gallery is sooo full of FABULOUS designs...I chose her CAS Turtle Thanks card to case. I kept the same basic layout and animal theme but changed the colors, changed the stamps to Clear Dollar Stamps Goose Hugs, and added the background layer.

I made this card last weekend for several of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges on Splitcoast. The sweet little Betsy Bluebell image by Penny Black that I bought at Stampers Dream was colored with copics and paper piecing was done with the green gingham. I dug out some ribbon and lace that I have had for a while and added the prima to finish it off.
