oh NUTS!

So where have I been?? I have made alot of new things lately, just haven't uploaded them!!! So...here is a start! I made this card for a few different places, as usual! First, it is for a card challenge on Cafemom, in the Scrap n moms group! Lissa, the owner of Scrap n moms, celebrated a birthday this past weekend, and we threw her a suprise CROP! Come on over if you are feeling like cropping, it goes until friday! The challenge was to make a birthday card, that from the outside, didn't really LOOK like a birthday card. Hence, the squirrel! I picked the squirrel set because, well....I recently won my very first blog challenge over at Kitchen Sink Stamps blog, and that is the set I won! I LOVE THEM! I had to use them! Huge shoutout to Kitchen Sink Stamps! Check them out if you haven't already!
I recently found another blog by checking out the Daily Dare, called The Pink Elephant! I love that title, so I checked them out, and found a color challenge! This was quite easy as their challenge is to use your personal favorite color combo! Hence, the red, black and white! I LOVE those colors together, so that is what I chose!
Then, I went to Pile it on, since, I was, well...piling it on! I had to use 4 buttons for their challenge, and pair it with at least one other challenge. The buttons...hard to figure out where to put them, but I settled on putting them on the ribbon. They are holeless buttons, but they are buttons nonetheless!
And, lastly, I used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch:

So, there you have it! 4 challenges, 1 card! Thanks for stopping by! Now I just need to forget someones birthday so I can use this card!
