Udderly fantastic!

 Good afternoon, I hope everyone is having a good week so far. 

I don't make New Year resolutions- don't make 'em- can't break 'em! Maybe a negative approach- but it works for me! however I am going to try harder to find time to create cards just because I want to not just for DT projects.  I have so many stamps and digis that I 'needed' and have never or rarely used, it's just not good enough! This card is made using a stamp set from Art Impressions that I treated myself to in December and some balloon dies that I bought back in the summer and hadn't even opened. Sadly I messed up the clouds (don't look at that bit) but otherwise I like it- it's already been bagged by my daughter.  so obviously she does too!  The crazy cow is coloured with copic markers and I've paperpieced one of her balloons and her skirt, stencilled the clouds using distress ink. The sentiment is part of the same stamp set. 

Thanks for visiting and have a lovely evening,

Oh My! So darn cute! LOve it Chris.
We are all guilty of having too many. I did loose a great amount of digis a few years ago, but, stamps! I'm now on drawer TWO. So many bought and never seen the light of day. I've even dies that have only been used one lol.

This is a riot! I love your flying cow with the punny sentiment! The paper piecing is clever too. Awesome sky, I think the clouds are amazing!

SarahR said...

Hi Chris, I just adore this one - it's such fun! Can't see anything wrong with your clouds, they look fab to me. I also have lots of stamps (and dies and paper and inks!) that I brought and never used. Hubby says to me that I could open my own craft shop with the amount of 'stuff' that is sitting there new, never used!
