l. WT230 Today Julia challenged us to do pleats somewhere on our creation! Welcome back, Julia, and thanks for the fun challenge!
2. Muddermarks aka Mothermark aka Cindy! This is for Cindy's teapot tuesday challenge! Thanks, Cindy, this was a lot of fun! I love the no rules part! I am running late! Here in KY. the pastures, roads etc. were flooded! Besides, Farmer McGregor is very protective of his Meadow Ladies! I had to sneak out! After treading all that river water had to stop by a car wash and hose off so I could put on all my new duds! These pearls are real you know! I am a very cultured meadow lady! hee-hee! Well, I am a newbie at these tea's so I am trying to keep my mouth shut! Sometime you just have to speak up! Every time I read a post on someone's teapot cow card, Mothermark is screaming *Vote for blah blah - vote for blah blah! I mean who judges these things anyway? I think the whole thing is rigged! And, another thing, I am a princess and I don't do cow pies! I'm usually a very contented cow and usually sit back and just chew my cud, but some things just have to be vented! Can't wait to get there! Love Calif. Thanks for the use of your place, Tosh! By the way, I'm bringing the good stuff! That's a moo-garita you see on the tray! Wahoooooo Wait for me!
The background scene was done using Rubberneckers *Kittie Kit* The tree was stamped then used a brush to stipple in the colors and then used the tiny leaf stamp to fill in! The cute little cow is Penny Black! She was colored using reinkers, cut out and popped up! Added the pleats on the side!TFL!
Hope you have a blessed and marvelous day!

What a beautiful scene you have created. Your tree is magnificent. I love how it was done. Oh by the way, I thought cows gave mooo-milk not mooo-garitas, but you know these modern cows. Anyway, I'll have one of whatever you are having.

Hey Francie! Whoo Hoo! You made our tea party! Hey girls Francie is here!
Sorry I am late finding you! I spent the last two hours trying to calm Alicia down because she heard there was a late comer to the party that was going around calling her Blah! Blah! She's very sensitive! Snort!
OMG! Your card is so funny, so precious! That is one snazzy cow! So sorry you had so many issues getting here! Way to sneak out of old McGregors pasture, I hear he's hard to be a cow for, so I hope Little Miss Meadow Lady makes a good showing for the judges....as a runner up to Alicia I mean!
Who are the judges?? No one knows...everybody is asking me!! All I know is that Alicia is in the lead and has it in the bag!!!
Your card and story are da bomb! Hee! Lets go have some tea and then I will show you where the milk a cow lessons are!!! Hugs!

LOVE how you created your scene!! That is one spectacular tree and the cow is so cute with all the popped up parts and the pearl earrings!! Your pleated panel adds a lot of (additional!) interest to your layout. Great card!
