Happy Birthday to Lynn

My friend and former DT member of Stamps R Us Lynn Hayes (of Creative Crafts by Lynn) celebrated her birthday on Saturday, and since she lives in TX, I wanted to send her a funny card with something that represents her home state. I didn't have any longhorn images, but I did find this funny bull image & sentiment from Limited Run Stamps. The inside says "baffle them with bull! Happy Birthday!" LOL I colored the image with Copics, and added some grass with the new SNSS grass die, using both the negative and positive cuts for a double row. I sponged the sky with Ranger tumbled glass ink and the bottom strips of yellow and green dsp are from Echo Park. Ribbon was from my stash.
Lynn's birthday was Saturday, but I waited to post this until I knew she got the card. If you get time, click on her blog link above and go holler some birthday wishes to her!!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great Monday!

Carol, this is so cute and funny, I'm sure she'll love this card!
And to answer your question...What did a buy at the craft show...It might be easier to say what I didn't buy...LOL. I went way over my budget...No self control, I took cash along, and was only going to spend the cash, but I ended up getting out the plastic. My two crafting buddies, went on Sunday too, and asked me to go along, and I said no, very difficult, but I knew I would spend more, and I was already over my limit.
As for waiting for the contractor, he's busy because he's good, so I hate to go and try and find someone else. We've had very bad contractors, and I don't want to go that route again.
Hope you have a good week

Carol, I'm sure Lynn was smiling all day Saturday once she saw this card. That cow is just adorable and I love how the grass came out with your dies. The ribbon is a nice touch and your sky is just perfect. Another great one from you. Enjoy your week.

You already know how much a dearly love this little "longhorn"! LOL! I've never seen one quite like it for sure - but love it just the same. I'll have to take a pic of one of the "real things" and post it on my blog now! Thank you again for this wonderful card!
