Calendar Girls - Cute 'n Cuddly ;)




Good Morning, blogging friends :)
  Today is the day that the Calendar Girls post our monthly cards,
 created with a theme that the hostess gives to us. This month, our hostess is Linda and her theme is "Cute and Cuddly."  Love her theme muchly :)
I have soooo many stamps that are cute and cuddly, and probably tops the list of what I own in stamps!

 Here is Linda's challenge this month: 

JULY 2013 CHALLENGE
Miss July: Linda

I would like it to be "Cute and Cuddly". The cuddly being a huggable moose, or a raccoon, or a bear, etc. I really enjoy the Riley stamps and Penny Black hedgehogs, but I'm asking you to pick your favorite furry creature stamp and make a card with any sentiment. I happen to be a hoarder of cute stamps, maybe because my kids share in my stamping addiction. It's always fun to see those little critters come to life on a card.
Can't wait to see what you come up with.
Linda



Oh which stamp to use!  I was sorting through my stamps and files
and finally saw this one and knew it was the one :) 
And cows are cute and cuddly, right? *smile!*
Some of my fondest memories are being on my grandparents orchards
in California and the neighboring farms - vast, vast farmlands!
For me, it just evokes such incredible happiness.
So my 'cute and cuddly' became very clear to me ~
"Cow'nt Your Blessings!"



  And the inside of my card:



For my card, I used a digi from Bugaboo stamps.
It was super easy to color, actually very little to color ~ so
I created the card base, paper choice and layout based on the image.
I went with the pink/red/black and in the end, it looks a 
little like a Valentine's card, right?!

I hope your day is *udderly Moo-velous!*

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
~Kelly
