Polka Dot Fun! Put your shades on!

 I Know!!!! This card is bright! I made this late at night this weekend...and no, I was not drinking LOL! The challenge at Crazy4Challenges
this week is Polka Dots! Do you think maybe I went a little crazy?  Well, I do and I have been looking at this card for a week..but it has actually grown on me. The image is from alota Rubber Stamps and I bought a whole sheet of Molly Moo stamps at last years rubber stamp convention in March.(Just took me a while to get around to using them).
I changed up the image some and added hearts where the leaves/flowers are on the vines to make it more "Valentiney"  I wasn't real sure how to color a Holstein cow, but I gave it a shot (gotta be holsteins, right Melissa?)

Well, that's it for now. I do have a fun house mouse card to show this weekend as well as a sympathy card :(  to show you--just have to get the posts written up this weekend. See you then! Stay warm everyone...and don't rub it in Shirley N! LOL (Shirley lives in Hawaii where everyone stays warm)

And oh.....some fun things to be made with my Cricut too!

I love the bright colors in this fabulous card!!! They remind me of summertime...sunshine...and warm weather!!! So personally, I think it is THE perfect card to help get over this chilly winter we are experiencing in the south. I also think you have the Holstein part down pat, cuz she looks adorable!!! I keep wanting to hear her sing..."California".

As for the Hawaii comment, I am totally feeling you!! Our oldest son is stationed there and makes it a point to let all of us know just how beautiful it is there. Man, what a stinker!!!=0] Must get those genes from his Dad;o) Hahaha!!!

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!!!

Love and Hugs!!

Cute card, Sue! I love the polka dots, and that sweet Ms. Cow is downright cute and friendly-looking. Well done. Hope you're stayin' warm. This part of Florida is freezing....literally!

I love the cow...she is colored perfectly (as a holstein, of course!). Next year when it's time for the stamp convention I would like to invite myself along with you! Well you don't have to take me, but please tell me when and where. You always have to cutest stamps! Can't wait to see the cricut projects. Still waiting for the recipe project! By the way I have been using the google reader you set up for me...I LOVE it! Thank you!
Love you!

I love her esp. against the black (I need to remember black more often!).

Sue -- you've done it again -- this is just as colorful as your yummy gumdrop fudge you made over the Holidays -- but I think this would be less fattening. Coming from a farming background, I can say that you did a great job with this Holstein Babe -- and love the heart vines. I'll be back soon as I see you've got a lot of new stuff since I was here.

Elena said...

Hi Sue

Great card! I love all the polka dots on your card! :) That green ribbon is just too cute! The black polkadot designpaper is also really great. Love the little hearts you added to the image.

I think I really need this MS border punch. ;) I saw the new stampin up punch, but I didn't like it because I wanted a scalloped edge and I know I see there is allready one like that. :) Does it also punch those little holes?
