Moo Thanks

Hi Everyone, after trying 20 times and even shutting down, I eventually got into the dashboard, I must have a setting wrong somewhere as it's so random that it happens.

Anyhow, my card today I have to admit to loving, because I have a thing for cows. I expect it's from living a few doors away from a farm when we were young and cows coming into the garden and munching Mum's flowers. I remember one evening Mum, whilst she was ironing, screaming in shock, she hadn't expected 2 big eyes looking into the window at her, until she realised it was a cow.

 I did spend a long while colouring her and decided she would be a Jersey Cow, because they are beautiful creatures and this is one beautiful cow. (Although we grew up with Holstein cows, black and white.)

Awwww, I love this card Faith!!!! I agree in that Jersey cows are so pretty, I love red ones too. lol Ok, I love them all! You did a beautiful job coloring this girl and I am loving the sentiment. This is just the coolest card! Oh your poor Mum!! I imagine that was quite the fright! We have had steers get out a few times as well, but the last time they got out Bret had a friend over and the friend didn't shut the gate. Not sure why he thought he could leave the gate open. lol He was a town kid, go figure. lol Hugs, Brenda
