Udderly Awesome

I discovered there is a son and daughter appreciation day on 11th August so as I have a son who I love and am thankful for as he was born at 26 weeks and was given 1/2 % chance of survival I thought I'd give him a card to celebrate him, as now he's in his 20's hugs aren't always cool.

I have this Penny black stamp I think is just such fun and when my son was little one his first attachment was to a black and white checked squeaky cow a friend bought him as a welcome to the world gift. She travelled everywhere for many years ,Greece ,the USA and all over the UK. We once lost her in a supermarket and had to go back in the evening as Daisy the cow hadn't been missed till then and he wouldn't go to bed without her.

There is little colouring to do on this cow and as my son can only see limited colours I stuck to one he says he can see red.

I kept to a limited palette and decided to make it a fun card with a pun using sissix die cut letters which I layered on black slightly offset to create a shadow.

Hope he likes it ,almost makes me want to give it him now instead of waiting till August 11th.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Tuesday throwdown - Black white and 1 other colour

CASology - balloons

Pennyblack and more- for the boys

Simon says - anything goes

Craftaholics R us- anything goes

As you like it - favourite colour duo
(don't really have a favourite but love these together so guess they are my favourites of the moment)

It's a super card for your son Julye, that PB image is one that always makes me smile when I see it and sure tour son loved it. Many thanks for joining us at penny Black and More challenge this month.

Lovely story about the toy, similar to events with one of my sons who had a much loved Golliwog (I know it's not PB to call them that now but don't know another name) when he was about three, that turned up in a muddy puddle the following say but soon cleaned up.

What a great story -- I love to hear of miracle babies defeating the odds! Happy birthday to your son, I have no doubt he will LOVE this card! I'm sure that adorable cow image will bring him right back to the days of his beloved cow toy! I love that image and the perfect punny sentiment you added. Thanks for celebrating with us this week at CASology!
