Udderly Amazing

 Welcome back OCS fans! It's Thursday and my turn to post some inspiration for you. It's also one day closer to Fri-YAY!!

Today I am sharing a stamp from High Hopes called Taking A Break. I think this cow would bring a smile to anyone's face! There are some times when someone has done something overly kind or when someone has reached a milestone in their lives that it is nice to send a card to acknowledge it which is where the theme for this card came from.


I coloured my stamp with alchohol markers and fussy cut it. I created my scene by cutting some green hills, blue sky and some fence. I added some pop dots to the cow and put my scene together. I edged all of the paper pieces and card edge with Memento London Fog ink.  The sentiment was created on my computer. Some twine and black gumdrops finish off my card.
