My husband George grew up on a Dairy Farm. He was a hard worker then, and he's a hard worker now, even with a bad back.
I don't know what I would do without him.
This little lady looks like she is waiting for a cow to come in from the field so she can get some fresh milk!
It's Thursday, and that means it's time for another Digital Delight's Delightful Thursday full of inspirational artwork by our Design Team.
This is my sample for you.

For my sentiment I used the Keeping In Touch Sentiment Set

The other patterned paper is by Crate Paper's Pretty Party Collection. The denim is by
 The Paper Studio.
I wanted to make this card really country. I colored the image with Prismacolor Markers, using a set of grays to shadow. The papers, gingham, denim and calico just shout country to me. I colored her to match the much easier than trying to find paper to match a colored image!
I sewed the card with Heavy Duty thread on my Singer. The red twine is really old, from the kid's craft dept. in Walmart I think...
I am on a Glossy Accents kick right now, and I love what it does for eyes, although Polly's eyes here are already huge...they look like they are pooling with tears...poor Polly!
For me, digital sentiments are a fun challenge. I love to get creative with them. This time I made a small tag, and stamped it with some CTMH stamps, inking the edge
 with Distress Ink in Faded fitting!
A small red eyelet keeps the tag from tearing off the red twine.
I am entering this card in the following wonderful challenges...wish me luck!
