CardMaker Magazine + Prickley Pear Blog Hop

Good morning everyone! Welcome to the CardMaker Magazine + Prickley Pear Blog Hop!  I was so excited to get to play with some of the cute rubber stamps that Prickley Pear kindly sent us.

As soon as I saw the stamps, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  The cute cow stamp combined with the "An udder year older" sentiment was perfect for making my own gift wrap and tag for a friend's gift.

I used Versamark to stamp the image on to black paper and then embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I used black embossing powder on the tag to make the cow stand out against the green background.  I added minor embellishments to finish off the package.  I think the overall look is cute and funny :)
I mean seriously, how cute is that cow?!?!

Your next stop on the hop is the talented Sharon.  If this was your first stop, you can start the hop at the CardMaker Magazine blog.  Up for grabs today is an awesome $20 gift card from Prickley Pear!

Thanks so much for stopping by - enjoy your Friday and your weekend!
