Holy Cow

A while back I saw a card on Allison's blog and she had used this Holy Cow image from Bugaboo.  I believe it was a freebie at the time, but as usual I'm a day late and a dollar short.......Anyway, I left a comment on her blog since it was so cute and she e-mailed to let me know that Bugaboo was having a sale at that time and I could get it in the store..  It only took about two minutes to scoot over there and get this cute image on sale.....So....


I'm back in the "I don't want to create anything" moo(d) again, but did manage to get this one done yesterday and think it'll be cute for a teenage birthday - I'm always needing those type of cards.  I've been working on my sponging some and tried again on this one.  Maybe one of these days I'll get the hang of it.  Next time though I'll do the sponging and then the stitching so it'll show up a little better.  Since this is for a teenage girl I added a rhinestone to the tail and a couple on the sentiment and, of course, a little glitter on the wings.

Just a note - Thanks so much to Donna over at Designing Keepsakes for passing the Liebster Award over to me!  When you get a chance be sure and check out her fabulous blog!  Thanks, Donna!

Thanks for stopping by.........and have a great weekend!

Fun card and great image I can see why you want it. Love how your used moo as your mood, very creative. I think it is the winter for the not wanting to do anything or that in between holidays, I feel the same way, but CAS make it easier to work on cards. This is great CAT and your sponging is perfect just enough to add depth. Have a great weekend.

I'm definitely having a big smile over this one, Lynn. Love the rhinestone on the tail! Fantastic. lol I even love the sponging over the stitching. It makes it more subtle. Great sentiment.
I have to agree with Donna about the Liebster Award. But now that I know she awarded it to you, I can't. You are definitely on my list anyway, so consider that you got it twice. :-)

Lynn, you make such GREAT cards! Cards that make me smile as soon as I see them! :) LOVE this one in all it's blue glory! That cow is just adorable and I love the sentiment you put with it! I need to try stitching. I keep telling myself I want to, but never get around to digging out my machine. Should make that a New Year's resolution, shouldn't I?! :)
