You...


 I had a request from someone to make a snarky card so I took his suggestion and came up with this one. The bull image is from Lindy's Stamp Gang and I colored it with Copics, and die-cut it using a MFT stitched circle die. I added a few random negative hearts left over from previous die cutting, and matted it with a die-cut Spellbinders scalloped circle die cut in Smoky Slate. The papers are from the grey collection of Recollections and the red horizontal borders were done with a MFT border die, given to me by a very thoughtful and generous blogging friend. I'm sorry I don't know the name of the die - I couldn't find it on the MFT website, but I love the masculine look of it. The word "you" was done with my Quickutz manual die cutter and the 3 dots were done with a small hole paper punch. The inside says "Make me horny." LOL

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Little Red Wagon #440 - Old MacDonald - use farm animals

Dies R Us #94 - anything goes but must use dies

2 Crafty Critter Crazies #13 - must use a critter on your card

Repeat Impressions DCC44 - all creatures great and small

Thanks for stopping by and keep smiling :)

I absolutely adore the fun side of this card, the image and the humour are spot on. The cow, strangely enough is really cute surrounded by little hearts x

The Elsie Cow made me laugh at her expression (remember Elsie the Cow, Carnation Milk commercials?) Love the stripe dp combined with the houndstooth pattern...You always have just the _right_ dp. You might say snarky, but I think it is just plumb cute! TFS
