Cow's it Going?

Good evening!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  We had great weather for my three-day weekend and I was able to enjoy a good part of it outdoors.  I also got some crafting done!!

I made this card for one of my aunts.  She recently had one of her heart valves replaced with a cow valve.  I wanted to send her a card for her recovery and decided to take a humorous approach in hopes that it will bring a smile to her face.  My sweetie helped me come up with the idea for this card.  He suggested a cow with a heart on it, but I decided to switch is around and make the card heart shaped and put a cow on the heart.

I'm going to submit this card in the challenge over at My Craft Spot.  The challenge this week is Wild About You and you're supposed to include a wild animal on your project.  Thanks for coming by to take a look!!

  1. Super cute and I think the humor will help her feel better. I was going to enter this challenge at MY Craft Spot, but then I deleted it because I didn't know if a cow was wild or not.

  2. This is SO sweet! The inking is fabulous and I love the look of the cow against the pink. And everything about this card is perfect for the occasion! I do hope and pray that your aunt continues to recover nicely. Great job!
