And in my estimation, soured milk has a pretty high "yuck" factor! I used the current Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #230 to create a birthday card for one of my favorite cousins, who is having her 80th birthday this week. She's pretty snarky, so I'm thinking she'll appreciate this card. She retired a number of years ago from her family dairy farm in southwestern Washington and has a large collection of black and white cow knick-knacks.
I started with Avery Elle's #ST-19-08 "Peek-a-Boo Pets" stamp set for the cow (which I colored and fussy cut) and conversation bubble sentiment. I layered pale blue and green paper to look like sky and grass, added a die-cut picket fence, glued the cow over the scene, and added a dimensional frame. I overlapped the frame with the bubble and the cow's hooves.
The yuck factor was saved for the inside, where I used a Tim Holtz "Snarky Cats" sentiment and added another conversation bubble. That's it!

Cute card, Fran and i might have just laughed out loud when I read the inside sentiment!!ReplyDelete
What a great card! Love the CAS scene and the inside sentiment. I totally agree with the yuck expression for soured milk - been there tasted that - yuck, yuck! I think your cousin will get a kick out of this card.ReplyDelete
LOL, I would totally send this card to my own sister....we grew up on a dairy farm too and she would think it was hysterical!ReplyDelete
I love this!! And so appropriate for an eighty year old with a sense of humor. Thanks so much for getting Yucky with us at the Sisterhood!ReplyDelete
Awesome sentiment I used it for my Uncle's 70th birthday.ReplyDelete
Muah ha ha this is awesome she obviously has an awesome sense of humour! I have an 80th birthday card to make but don't think my recipient would be quite as appreciative!ReplyDelete
Thanks for getting yucky with Edna and the sisterhood of snarky stampers
Terrific card, Fran! Jo x SoSSReplyDelete
