Muse #25c CFC #109 and SC2

The minute I saw the Muse for this week from Therese Calvird, I knew what I wanted to do.

Have you ever heard the poem by Gelett Burgess called "I Never Saw a Purple Cow"?

I never saw a purple cow.
I never hope to see one.
But I can tell you anyhow
I'd rather see than be one.

I used to love this poem and even had a little purple cow statue.   Or maybe I loved the poem because I loved that purple cow.  No matter, it inspired me to make this card using cows instead of flamingos.

I cut the cows from Create a Critter and stamped their faces with a Peachy Keen stamp.  Unfortunately the photo doesn't show the winking face on the purple cow.  If I had it to do over, I would use a lighter purple. I printed the sentiment on the computer and inked the grass with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  

I also got a chance to do another card for my homework for the Summer Camp 2 online class.  This is my 10 Minute Challenge.

I cut the banners from the My Craft Spot banner dies in various polka dot papers.  The white panel is cut 5 1/2 by 3 3/4 and mounted on foam tape to a gold paper.  The sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Bash stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I used a Zig pen to add the line and swirls carrying the banners.  10 minutes on the dot!  It would have been a little quicker but I dropped my Cuttlebug plates and had trouble getting the paper off the foam tape.

I am also entering this card in challenge at CAS-ual Friday.

I'm glad you stopped by today.  Please leave a comment so I know you were here and have yourself a wonderful day.

Thanks, Nancy. I'm usually the one who sees all the typos in everything but this one I read at least 3 times and missed it. It's corrected now.

Great cards! How fun that you used the poem as an inspiration. It really does work perfectly with the challenge. What a perfect sentiment too! And your banner card is fantastic! The polka-dot paper is a fabulous choice! Good for you doing it all in 10 minutes too.
