This month's Tickle a Teapotter challenge is to bring farm animals or animal feed to the party. Since Curt is such a gregarious character I decided it was only fitting to bring along a Canadian cow for him to visit with.
This week's Technique challenge is to string something up. I took it literally and strung up some twigs with actual string.
I drew a farm scene onto dotted paper and cut them out kind of like a quilt. Then I drew the cow and tied a bell around his neck. The fence is little twigs from the garden and string. The sentiment is Crafty Secrets.

This card is amazing! If I could draw like you, I wouldn't need to buy any stamps! I love how you pieced together this scene that you created1 Love the polka dot papers in varying colours! The cow is awesome.....love the extra touch of a cowbell! I love the fence that you strung up too. This is just one amazing card!
