What's Moo?!


Here's this week's sketch challenge #122 from the Stars & Stamps blog.

So what's mooo?? I had this funny Rubber Stampede stamp lying on my desk, and it fit perfectly on the horizontal panel, so I just stamped it and went from there. I used all SU! blushing bride dsp and card stock along with some black. The embossing was done with a CB ef and I added some blushing bride ink to the cow with a blender pen. I didn't have a stamp with the sentiment I had in mind, so I took a black marker and drew it myself.
On a personal note, I was so sad to learn last night that Kristen Wiig has left Saturday Night Live! For quite a few years I looked forward to staying up late and watching the hilarious characters she played! I'm happy for her tremendous success, but I'm bummed at the same time that SNL will lose such a brilliant cast member. Rumor has it that Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis will not be returning either, but that announcement will supposedly come later this summer. If you missed last night's finale, here's a link to Kristen's sendoff with a lot of familiar faces from some well-known SNL alumni. Change is always inevitable, but I'm really going to miss Kristen on SNL!

Hey Carol, what's moo with you? Love your card and those papers! I was sorry to hear Kristin was leaving SNL too. Here's hoping they get some great new talent that turn out to be big stars, just like a lot of the others.

MOOOOOO - that's the sound of a happy cow after looking at this card! So cute, Carol, and love that embossing folder with it. I have a stamp similar to this (if not the same) and haven't used it in forever....now you've inspired me!
Very cute.

Cute card, and great card for the challenge!

Denise Marzec said...

LOL, I made a card today with a moo theme and punny sentiment. I still have to get the picture from my camera to my computer and post it....I'll probably schedule it for Tuesday. I love yours with the sweet pink and black....perfect colors for a cow-themed card. :)

Linda said...

great card! I love everything about it

Jennipher said...

This is just too much fun! I love the color scheme and the fun image and sentiment.

JoAnn Ross said...

I love, love, LOVE everything about this card! And that you did the sentiment yourself? Wow. So clever!

And especially cool is your use of those romantic pink colors with a cow! I have an entire box of wedding papers from scrapping my son's wedding and have to admit I never would've thought of combining them with a cow. But it's brilliant!

I Love the cow! sooooooper cute! and yes, it was a hissy fit, you didn't see what I typed in first!! and second....and then...third!! thank goodness there's a delete button! IT's my fault, if I put them on a shared site, someone's bound to share them, and I now realise, these share sites, share, and have 'sister' sites who share...so it goes on and on. It's not too bad if they share MY link, because when I delete it, it disappears too...it's the ones that add it to their own sites with their own codes, many of the shared sites are automated and have no way of knowing who they are...so they say...if you believe that I'm a monkey's armpit!
