Holy Cow!

     Holy cow it's been awhile since my last post!  I'll explain why in a second.  This card is for my "older" brother.  I saw it on The Spotted Chicks blog and thought it was a hoot!
     The image is from Squigglefly called cow pack.  It is a set of 4 images for only $3 in case you need some cows.
     The paper is Basic Grey.  The cow's tail and sentiment are popped up.  I used sketch #71 from Papertake Weekly but flipped it.  Their challenge this week is anything goes using one of their sketches.
     On a personal note my sweet mother-in-law passed away a week ago Sunday.  She was a blessing to all who knew her.  She was 90 years old and saw 5 generations of her family.  God's timing is always perfect even in death.  She wasn't sick long and went quietly in her sleep.  She will be greatly missed.

  1. Such a fun card for your brothers birthday! So sorry to hear of the passing of your MIL.

  2. That cow card is hilarious, honestly you have me smiling from ear to ear. Nellybell our Jersey cow who I milked before school would have enjoyed her company immensely.
    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful paper craft project with us today at WAW. We appreciate your participation and love seeing your art.

  4. Oh this is fabulous, love that cow and what a perfect fun sentiment for such a fun card.

    Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.


  5. Ha ha, love the "holey" cow perfect with your sentiment, great coloring. So sorry for your loss, sounds like she had a good long life, to be able to see 5 generations, now that is a blessing!

  6. Holy cow, what a cute card! Your brother's going to get a kick out of the picture, if not the sentiment!

  7. This is so funny! Wonderful DP's too. Thanks for blessing us with your artwork at Word Art Wednesday. Make sure you join us for our new Challenge starting today and to download our new free scripture Word Art. God bless, always!

  8. Your card is hilarious! I just love an image that gives me a big grin. I was looking at this set on Squigglefly the other day. Not going to buy until I color a few more of the ones I have, but I'm having fun looking! Your coloring is great. Thanks so much for the smile! I am sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. It's never easy to say goodbye to someone you love, but I'm glad to hear she finished her life peacefully.


Thanks for such encouraging comments!
