Feature a Creature

 Kathy Krug here. I am so thrilled to be working with Barb Campbell on this challenge for Mod Squad Challenge Blog  called Feature a Creature.  I am representing ONE HAPPY CUT who is offering a $15 dollar gift certificate.

Here is my card starring Brownie the Cow. Lots of gluing to put this card together but the results give so much detail.  A special note to my friend, Judy, not a flower or a butterfly on this card.  You thought I couldn't do it.

When our kids were young, my husband wanted to raise them the way he grew up so we purchased a few acres, built a barn, bought a milk cow, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and planted a garden.  It is hard to believe, but by the end of the summer my kids were saying, "No more tomatoes, cantaloupe, water melon, or corn on the cob.  We were able live on that little farm for seven years until the Air Force transferred us and we had to "sell the family farm".  My husband would still like to live on a farm and loves tractors, wagons, horses, barns and cows or anything farm related.  I purchased four die sets to make him a special birthday card with some of the things he loved about the farm. Because I purchased so many dies, it became a very expensive card (I'll never tell him how much) so I am glad to use these dies again for this challenge. So find a Creature to feature and join us at  Mod Squad Challenge Blog .
