Uh - It's still March Melissa!

We wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Moo Year!! No, I am not looking at a funky calendar. The last March challenge for the Corrosive Challenge was a Christmas card with animals. Talk about a challenge for me!


I knew, when Janet told us the challenge, that I'd be using TGF's McSplendid farm set because it was the only set that had animals that was in my collection. But what was going to go with it?? Well, with the craze of the digi-stamps going on, I decided I could do basic shapes. So I opened up a program on my computer and I drew the Christmas tree. Viola! My first digi-image. Primitive as it is. Then I needed to make my sweet little cow festive. I hadn't a clue how to draw her hat on the computer so I free-handed the hat. Boy am I glad it fit her head! So when I say this is MY card, it truly is MY card with the exception of the cow and the paper.

I hope you join us in the Corrosive challenge. And don't forget to play along with Gabby's sketch. Combine the two! It'll be lots of fun!!!
