Think Ink Tuesday - MOOOOO

Good Morning Everyone!!! First of all I wanted to tell everyone I have been sick since Friday. I haven't been around too much at all. I am beginning to feel better and last night was the first night I didn't have a fever. This flu season has gotten everyone down and out. I was really hoping it would pass right by me but with 3 kids in school I was not so lucky!!! I hope everyone is staying healthy, and enjoying their week.

Today is another fun Think Ink Tuesday Challenge! This weeks challenge is to: USE ANY TECHNIQUE OR CREATE ANY 3-D ITEM THAT YOU HAVE NEVER TRIED BEFORE! Sounds fun doesn't it???? For me this was a great opportunity to make a Pizza Box. I have never made one before and couldn't wait to try it out. A good friend of mine, Denise, gave me these directions and I thought I would pass them on to you. To see the directions, please scroll down!

You have until Monday, November 9, 2009, midnight Pacific Standard Time to link your creation to this post. A winner will be chosen Tuesday, November 10, 2009 to win a GRAB BAG of AI STAMPS! How awesome is that, so come on over and join in the fun at OUR BLOG.

I just couldn't wait to use this Cow and Sentiment from the NEW SET Down on the Farm from Artful Inkables. I thought a fun pizza box filled with Cow Tales would just be perfect for today's challenge. I just love this NEW SET. Come check it out HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my project. I hope everyone has a GREAT TUESDAY. Don't forget to play along this week!!!
