When I saw this digital stamp, I immediately thought of my sister. She loves cows. Why? I'm not sure. She raises calves (bottle feeding them when necessary) and then works with them until they are show-worthy. She has taken more than a few kicks, but she continues on. Much more patience than I could ever have.For the card-I used the digital stamp from Beccy, and the papers were just some I had lying around (aren't they always?). I tried to stick with the patchwork theme she had going, by adding the paper in "squares". I thought about adding stitching, but I didn't want to take away from the image. The yellow trim I made with a flower punch and my scissors, and the ribbon is from Micheal's (a sale item, if I remember correctly). The sister charm is from Creating Keepsakes, and the buttons are from my stash.
