Geez, what a challenge Cindy set us this morning -I quote: Bring your fastest cards girls and bring two of them! No fancy doo-dads, no embellishments, limited layering, just clean, clean, clean. No flowers, no brads, no ribbon, just simple, simple, simple. No pop-ups, no special folds, just flat, flat, flat. Just quick, just cute, just fast, fast, fast. That's your task, two cards real fast!! And let's make them kid appropriate! Yah, that's it! Two cards for kids!! You'll see why when you read the Destination Station.
So here is one of my fast and furious kid-friendly cards. It's too windy down on this farm to try to get two of them to stay in place long enough to take a photo.
Fast for sure - I coloured with markers, and as the cow mask was already made after the first one, the second one didn't even take ten minutes.
5" square, circle frame embossed with Nestabilities.
Images from Farm Fresh stamped with black and coloured with markers. Sky and grass chalked in fast and furious, no fancy shading or nuttin' - I followed the rules all the way.
I reckon this is where Moe's heart really lies - he may be all dressed up smartly for his city-slicker auctioneer's job (hey, just thought, maybe he's an auctioneer at a farmers' market, so he may not have moved too far. Natch, he's too smart for a farm auction). The slow pace of life on this little farm looks more his style, and who's that waiting for him down in the corn patch?

Okay, when I read my words, that you wrote, I thought, holy COW, that sounds like a tough challenge! Snort! I don't think I would have played! Yikes!
Okay, next question....did you take your picture on a cow paddy???? Giggle, well you are on the farm arent' you??? Just kidding! Snort!
Okay, now my comment! This is such a precious little circle window of farm fun! I think Moe flat gave up, threw in his chances of life in the fast lane and went back to his relaxing, meandering life back at the farm! He's the smartest one of the bunch!
This is so precious Sabrina! You did good while remembering your sister's cow toy! Tee Hee! Love it!
