Happy Birthday Dad

I went to IL for springbreak. My son and I had so much fun on my dad's farm. I took lots of pictures.. Anyway....his birthday is coming up and I took a picture and created a coffee mug with his farm's name on it and a momma cow and her calf.


When I saw the CDS guest design team challenge I thought I would give it a try. I love this set. I have used it so many times. It was a gift from my friend Gloria.. It is called Farm Critters.

We were to "dangle" or hang something. I added the beads as a dangler. I then also added a suspended cow. There is a tutorial on SCS for a suspension card. (Thanks LISA). I needed a gift bag. I created a Genie bag from SCS also and added a suspended cow on my tag. I created my own cow print and added some hearts. The sentiment is so my dad. He has a great sense of humor. Here is the info if you are interested in the design team or to see some of their other sets: CDStamps

Here is a close up of the suspended cow. I love the way it looks with the nestie window.






Here is the cup and a picture of my dad and son.. My son is bottle feeding a baby.

I will treasure these forever:

Have a great day....
Dawn
