Swiss Pixie Cow:

Good morning all!  Zoooie - it's cold and windy out there today!  I have my little heater on in my craftroom to warm up a bit, it's mainly for the animals - they LOVE the heat!  I'm sure they wished they lived in Florida or California instead of the middle of Canada ;)

Can you believe it's mid-month again??   It's also another 2 week challenge at  All That Scraps.  This time around it's a colour challenge of blue, red, kraft, and black.  But please do remember, your project must include an image sold at the All That Scraps Store.

I used the new release of Swiss Pixie Cow - isn't she *udderly* ADORABLE?!?!  I had so much fun with this card.

My favorite part of colouring is the cheeks!  It just brings lil faces to life!
Card Ingredients:  C.C. Designs stamp, Amy R. Sweet Sentiments stamp, Craftsmart Black and Tim Holtz Burlap inks, Cosmo Cricket Baby Jane papers, Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils (skin - Light Peach, Peach, Burnt Ochre, Blush Pink, Crimson Red;  Hair - 30%, 50%, 90% Cool Grey, Black;  Outfit/Hair Accessories - Crimson Lake, Light Aqua, Aquamarine, Black;  Cow hat - 30%, 50% and 90% Cool Grey, Blush Pink), We R Memory Keepers Blue Lagoon twine, random buttons.  Tools: sewing machine, blending stumps and mineral spirits.

I made this cutie for the following challenges:  Scrap-Creations - pick 3: red, buttons, paper piecing,  Craft Your Passion - blast from the past - Challenge 41: buttons, Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - down on the farm, Jellypark - all about children, ABC Challenge - wishes, Allsorts - layers, Unscripted Sketches - sketch:

Have super-duper wonderful Wednesday!  Thanks for the visit!
