TMS #19 & There She Goes #28

Okay, this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch was an absolute challenge for me. I loved the sketch and had an "elegant" image in my head.

This week's sponsor, The Pixie Cottage, was kind and sent the Design Team stamps. I received the image below and I was stumped!!! I am NOT an animal person. So not only did it not meet my elegant thoughts, it didn't appeal to me. I agonized for hours - literally! Yet, I really like how this card came out. I combined DP, chipboard, and ribbon and would've added just about anything for this to come out!!

I began by cutting a circle card (first one) and then cutting all the circles to go around the card. Then I sat and colored probably 5 or 6 different cows till I got the look I really wanted. Heck I even googled pictures of cows to contemplate black and white or brown and white. I even colored one of my cows pink and purple!! But I have to say, I like this card. It's not too bad.

I was cleaning out a lot of my paper this past week and came across this wonderful chipboard and decided to add it where there was to be flourishes...not to shabby. By adding the chipboard, I could play along with the There She Goes challenge this week.

My next challenge - the 6 month swap I belong to the host of the month sent a horse and cowboy scene...the only sentinment I can come up with is Bruce Willis saying, "Yippe ki-yay..." need I fill in the rest!!

Thanks for coming and taking a peek.

This is sooo adorable!! I would've liked to see the pink and purple cow though.

You should post some of your monthly cards here, too.

You did a great job with this Theresa, I am so proud of you.
