True Moo

My youngest was feeling a little bored, and with it being a little chilly and windy, going to the pool today was out of the question.  I've been taking advantage of the down time today to try to clean up my craft room a little bit.  So what does mom being in her craft room + a bored kid equal?  A cute little note card using the PTI On the Farm set (I had to get the whole shebang because I have a certain cow loving boy).  Spotted cows are his favorite!  He made the spots using PTI Grunge Me.

He also wanted me to point out that the sentiment has a cool, almost like 3d effect (I think it looks like the chalkboard technique) because he accidently wiggled the stamp when stamping it!

Here's to many more stamping adventures!
