Cow Country

     I don't think I've ever had more fun coloring an image!  We have a new challenge at QKR Stampede starting today and our theme is "Cows."  Yes, I said "Cows."   I hope you'll check out all the different cows used by the gals on the DT.  We all giggled over our images and cards this week.

     Both my sentiment (Digi 11207 - Cow Country) and my image (Digi 1004 - Long Horn) came from QKR Stampede.

     I'm happily dedicating this card to my friend and blogging buddy, Lynn (Creative Crafts by Lynn,) who lives in Cow Country somewhere out there in the middle of Texas.  Some time back, she made a card and discovered that her hubby was very confused about the difference between a pig and a cow, which is a bit embarrassing for a Texas cowboy!  She had me laughing for a week with her story about that one.

     So, Lynn, I personally challenge you to do something with a cow this week and enter it into the QKR challenge.  And, yes, I know you have some kind of a cowboy charm to add to it!  :-D

     I colored this image with ProMarkers then cut it out and punched the corners.  I used dark brown CS to mat the image and punched those corners, too.  I printed the sentiment, rounded the corners, matted it and rounded those corners.  Everything was adhered to a square, white card base.

     I added the twine, used a bit more of it to make the lariat, and finally added the cowboy hat charm.  There you go, another CAS, masculine card filled with fun and who knows what else.  After all, as the sentiment says, "You're in cow country..."

     I really hope you'll come and play with us this week.  While it isn't necessary to use a QKR image to enter or to win, there are some awfully cute cow images in the shop.  Plus, you'll be entered into a separate drawing just for entries which use QKR Stampede images and that increases your chances of winning dramatically!  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Well, cowabunga!!!!!!!! CUTE!!! Love that image and of course everything else about your card!
I'm thinking we need to dedicate this card to Jim and not me!!! Now, this IS a cow - and she's in all her glory! LOL! Surely Jim would know that this is one for sure - longhorns and all. I'm thinking maybe I need to take him out in the back pasture and start explaining how a cow and pig differ - or maybe just refer him to your blog! Oh, and by the way....the sentiment is so true! Many a time have I stepped in the cow patties - just the squish between your toes is enough to make you watch where you step(and give a little gag too!) LOL!

Linda Simpson said...

Oh Connie, this sure made me chuckle, poor Lynn. I am sure she will step up to the challenge! As for me well I love this card and the sentiment is brilliant.
Enjoy your weekend my friend.
