Howdy Partner


For the Bugaboo Challenge I have made a card with this little cow poke which was one of their free images. I finished this card and thought he looked pretty cute - showed it to my husband (which, I know, was a mistake - I'll just never learn!!!) - and the only thing he said was "where's his mouth and nose!" Then he wanted me to give him the card so he could draw in the mouth and nose! ARG>>>>>> Anyway, I thought the card came out pretty cute.

The paper I used was Chocolate Chip, White, and some patterned paper from CTMH. The sentiment is computer generated. I used my SU punches and then attempted to wrap the twine around the outer circle. It really didn't come out like I wanted it to though. I colored the little guy with Copics (still trying to practice with them every chance I get).


We're getting more rain today so the garden will be ready to be picked again tomorrow or Thursday! Whew! Alot of work. Plus the sweet corn is almost ready around here. We don't grow that but end up buying a 100 or so ears to freeze. At least I don't have to can that and will just process it and freeze it. So yummy to eat all year long!


Thanks for stopping by..............

Very clever use of the twine and looks to me like your use of Copics is just fine.
