Happy Thursday!!!! And what an exciting Thursday it is! Today is our first challenge over at Craft Us Crazy!! Our challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES!!!!

The cutting cafe blinkie
and
With Valentine's Day around the corner, I knew I wanted to make another Valentine's gift. Another that I'm not sure where it'll go, but maybe I'll come up with someone. 

For this challenge I chose to work with and the Claudia Cow Colored Image from Digital Delights and the 2011 Calendar Printable Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe!! I chose the colored version of Claudia because I knew I wanted to print it multiple times so that I could layer her for a 3D look, but she's also available in black and white form!! I used two pieces of wood that came in a gift that I received from Christmas one year that I of course held on to because I just knew it would come in handy one day lol and IT DID!!! I painted both of them, and hand painted the clouds on the top piece, and free handed a cow pattern to match Claudia on my bottom piece, and attached the calendar to the front side with double ribbon bows, and used my Tim Holtz Swivel Clasps to attach it all and allow it to turn at the bottom and find the sticky note pad on the backside.  I had so much fun making this project and hope you enjoy checking it out!!!
