Moo-chas Grass-ias - Paper Dolls

This silly little cow from the paper dolls cartridge was perfect for the thank you card I wanted to make. I cut her in a black and white card, then again in white and cut off her face and horns, then added them to the pattern layer. She looked a bit like a zebra so I did some random black markings. I applied diamond glaze to her horns and feet and stuck two shiny black dots on for a nose.

Making her reminded me of the day when we opened the local paper in Florida and saw the following ad. in the 'lost and found' column.


LOST - BLACK AND WHITE CAT, LOOKS LIKE A COW.

Hmmm..........bet they found her pretty quick then. You know what the owners meant, but it looks so ridiculous in print.
