Evening all :)

It was my wonderful Daddy's 60th birthday recently, so of course I had to make a whole rake of cards for everyone to give him! But it was great being able to do a card for each of his hobbies and interests hehe - I made a hunting card, a DIY card, a vintage tractor card, an 'old fart' card, a vintage aeroplane card and this one is in tribute to him being a dairy farmer! Retired now, but we all grew up with farming as part of our lives - I love cows! I miss having them around, and I'm sorry for my nieces who don't have the same proximity to farm life that we did growing up, being surrounded by nature and animals makes for a wonderful childhood. My neighbour gave this one to him :)

The image is a digi from Whimsy Stamps, the flourish is a cheery lynn die, the jute is from Ribbon Girl, the gems from Wild Orchid Crafts and the embossing was done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment and number were printed on the computer.

A closeup of this adorable image! I coloured her with Promarkers and put some Stickles on the bee trail and Glossy Accents on her udder!

A closeup of the flourish and sentiment.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking :)
