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!

  1. Cute card, Fran and i might have just laughed out loud when I read the inside sentiment!!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. Awesome sentiment I used it for my Uncle's 70th birthday.

  6. 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!
    Thanks for getting yucky with Edna and the sisterhood of snarky stampers
