Today we were to put a bird on our card. In case you don’t know, this is a rare breed of flamingo. In fact, it is called a fla-moo-go. A cow crossed with a flamingo. Can you see the resemblance? hehe
Okay, I confess. I have O.C.D., translation, Obsessive Cow Disorder. If you were ever to browse my gallery you would tend to see lots of cow cards, with one particular cow named Curt. He is always up to something. Take today for example; he thinks he is a flamingo! That crazy cow, always working an angle to get his mug on a card. Once again, it worked!....unless the challenge police come after us.
This was inspired from a comic on the newspaper, my choice of reading. Coloring was done with w/c and acrylic paints. Stamped the grass and rounded the corners of the panels. Added a bow and doodling.
Well, hope you like my “bird” card! hehe Have a great evening all! ….TFL :0)

Cathy. you have me laughing out loud. Your card brought back memories of Chicago's "Cows on Parade" which had SO many clever and creative cow statues...Like "Marilyn MOO-nroe" in her "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" outfit with a bling-studded "cow patty". Curt would have fit right in and you could have been one of the artists represented! Thanks for a hearty laugh tonight...one which I shared with my DH. He loved it too! Thanks...........and thanks for your most kind words to me.

I definitely laughed out loud while reading what you said about Curt! Oh My Goodness! I was wondering what was going on with the pink cow like creature! But now I understand, and I hope the recipient gets it too~ Too funny!

OMW - too cute!!! The challenge police can't come after you as Curt would go incognito in a New York second.....probably blend write in with those challenge po-po's. Curt is a bird of sorts, a crazy one at that. We need a book of Curtisms.
