It’s Tuesday and time for a new cue word challenge over at CASology!  I’m guessing we’re going to have a fun gallery this week!  There are SO many ways to interpret this one and I had a tough time narrowing my own design down to one theme!  I may just have to create another card for later in the week!

Week 238 - Crunch

With in-loves who live on a farm, one of my first thoughts was cows or horses eating hay.  Have you ever heard a cow eating hay?!  Now that’s a crunch if I’ve ever heard one!  I stamped the cow from Lawn Fawn’s Critters on the Farm set and then colored with Copics and fussy cut the finished image.  I die cut a circle out of the card front with a circle die from Mama Elephant’s Pizazz Creative Cuts Die Set  to frame the main image.  I then popped up the cow inside the card with foam dots, adding little tufts of green grass with a Copic marker (& forgot to take a photo).  I wanted the cow’s face to be peeking out of the circle and this allowed for that.  The simple sentiment is from the same stamp set and is stamped in black ink directly on the card front.

I hope you’ll take a little time to visit the design team members’ blogs as well as our guest designer’s blog this week!  They’d love to hear from you!

    Love that little cow in his window. Even a city girl can relate to that.
