MOOchas Gracias

***This is my second post for today. For the winners of my blog candy giveaway, please scroll down to my earlier post. Thanks!


Hello! Dropping by to share a card I made for the most recent CAS-ual Fridays Challenge! Their challenges always have a SUPER FUN twist to them and this one was no exception! In honor of International Literacy Day the challenge was to create a card using a BOOK as your inspiration and the color combo: black, white and red! CLEVER,right?!?!

I'm a licensed elementary school teacher and one of my favorite children's books is Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type! It's a HILARIOUS story, the illustrations are AWESOME, and kids LOVE IT!!


And here's my creation:


That DARLING cow is from the set, For All It's Worth, by Market Street Stamps!! I JUST LOVE HER!!! I created the "note" using Smitty's ABCs (Lawn Fawn) and then tacked it up to the woodgrain embossed (Tim Holtz) panel with a little thumbtack image from Just My Type (Lawn Fawn)! The patterned papers are from Echo Park!

SIDE NOTE: My husband turned in his application for tenure at the university. Now we just have to wait until April for the committee to announce their decision. Keep your fingers (and toes) crossed for us! He's been working REALLY hard, so I wanted to do something special for him to celebrate this first hurdle. I made him his favorite dinner, chicken marsala with mashed potatoes and peas. And we opened a bottle of almond champagne that our sweet friends from San Diego had given to us in anticipation of this occasion.

Thanks for stopping by!
