I'm able to join the tea party this week as it involves my punchie pal and very special friend, Nancy, nwilliams6. It is to send a Valentine card of love to her special parents. Her mother has cancer and we'd really like to cheer her up.
Nancy says her Mom likes cows, flowers, crossword puzzles, etc., so I incorporated 2 of them in their card. The flower and the cow; however, if you look closely there are squares on the first layer b/g which could be used for a crossword puzzle, don't you think???? The sentiment is "goofy", but that's because I generated it myself. What else would you expect from me?
Nancy, your Mom is a real trooper and your Dad sounds so wonderful. I hope this will bring a smile to their faces. Hang in there Nancy.
I decided since it's QFTD152 week, I'd find a card I could use to inspire this one. Even though I cased this card of Mary's, and it is flower based, I thought the layout would work perfectly for this card. CONGRATS Mary!!!
I colored the images with a variety of copics, sparkled up the sheep and added a fence like a real barn yard! I double popped up the image and nesties, added a b/fly I had in my stash from AudreyAnn and added a flower and wood heart in the corner.
I self-generated the goofy sentiment, used a tag diecut with thread running through it and lightly sponged.
The dsp is actually 2 separated layers with a border heart punch. I heart punched a bottom border on the inside and added an array of dsp punched hearts.
That's about it! I will be sending this pronto to Nancy's parents and wish Mary a very exciting week with the crown!!

Hey, that's a good sentiment and I see you've got a lot of farm animals in your field. I even see a cute sheep and you know I like that. :-) I see that crossword puzzle piece, too. Sara and Leavie are sure to flip over this fun, adorable card.

Pam, this is a perfect card for me! I love cows and have herefords as pets..........yes pets!!! I just LOVE that sentiment too. I love your dp too, looks like wheat when ripe, which is so pretty. All the little details from the fence to the heart and butterfly, so easy on the eyes. Thank you so much for playing along. Hugs!
