I've Been Waiting For Heifer......


This week's High Hopes Challenge #19, brought to us by Amy, is to use sponging on your design!! Well, when I think sponging, I think distressing! And when I think distressing, I like to rough up the edges of my papers as well as sponge them....just have to get the full effect of the distressing, know what I mean??

So I inked up Maribelle Cow and coloured her up with my Copic markers. I used Blush dp by Basic Grey, Close to Cocoa for the base and accented with Pink Pirouette. I sponged the main image and all the dp with Close to Cocoa ink and then roughed up all the edges using my scissors. I pop dotted the cow, added some BG buttons with hemp twine and added the perfect sentiment!!



I made this card yesterday while I was at Andrea's house! I packed up a small portion of my craft room (which ended up filling the entire back seat of my car) and arrived around 10:45am. We got busy doing a little sumpin', sumpin' for Scrappin' Great Deals (can't spill the beans just yet, but we'll share the deets with you around the beginning of March). Then we started stampin'!! Andrea's pal Diane came over to play for a bit too! We got LOTS accomplished (in between the lauging and goofing around). Andrea's hubby is the best!! He ran out and picked up Wendy's for lunch for us AND stopped at Timmie's for coffee etc. Then he made up sub sandwiches with all the fixin's for din-din!! We stopped and watched Dark Knight while we ate and had a little break from stampin'.

Andrea's girls are just a hoot! I love them!! Kaitlyn is 9 and she is an awesome little scrapbooker! She showed me the book she is working on right now and she does an amazing job!!! And Jaime is 12 and she showed me the girls' bedroom with all the super cool Twilight posters covering an entire wall!! Hi girls!! *waving*

The weather was pretty bad yesterday with a bit of a snowstorm, so I was planning to stay overnight at Andrea's. But when we finished stampin', around 12:30am (how's that for marathon stamping?), it was pretty clear outside, so I drove home. Well, as I was typing this, I got an email from Andrea telling me, oh so delicately, that I had left my big black rolling tote bag over there and guess what it has in it?? ALL my Copic markers!!!!!! OH YES!!! I have a bit of a nauseous feeling going on right now, so I think I'm going to go lie down... I feel so naked......I can't stamp right now!!! WHAT?? Everything's going black.....I may pass out......guess I should have stayed overnight!!

Well, hope YOU have a good day..........

Oh Kim, I feel for ya, forgetting your Copics... sorry that happened! I hope its not too far to go back for them. That sounds like a super fun day though!
I love your cow card! Beautifully colored, as usual. I love all the distressing, the tilt to the layers, and your choice of dp, esp the colored polka dots! Cute button embellishing, love the hemp knots through them! Nice layering; the pink makes a nice border. You're so good!
