Birthday card for a vet.

We had a great dry day today, got lots of my pots cleared out in the garden and a few planted up.  I got the most beautiful Dianthus, a sort of deep pink with pretty white edges, so it's now sitting pride of place at our back door :)

This card was a special request for a student vet who loves cows and doesn't like horses!  I used these farm animals from MFT and chalked the sky and added a few splatters for good measure.  I hadn't intended to add the red enamel dots but I had an oops that needed covering ;)
My 21 is die cut with silver card.


  1. What a fab card!! Sounds like she is going to love it Lynne. Your sky is perfect and I love the enamel dots xx

  2. Fun card. I think the red dots add a nice bit of color. !!line of farm animals makes me smile. They all look like they're a little scared of the student vet and what she might do!

  3. Lovely card thanks for sharing with creatalicious Rachel DT

  4. Fab card, I think the red dots lift it perfectly and I love how you highlighted the number. Cara x

  5. Great fun! I've been busy in the garden too - it's such a lovely time of year isn't it, Jo x

  6. Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous card with us at Creative Inspirations. Good luck,

  7. Such a cute card, and the oops was your opportunity to add more texture to your card. 😊

  8. This card is so adorable! And I also enjoyed your write-up so much! I liked this card even before I read the story behind it, but when I saw how you'd personalized it with cows and no horses, it made me smile even more. I love cards that are made for a specific person for a specific reason and you've done that perfectly here. I also laughed at your red dots to cover an "ooops" moment. I think we're all experts at the fine art of mistake-camouflage! Thanks for sharing your talents in art and writing with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  9. How sweet! I love the little farm animals! Thank you for joining us at Crafty Creations Challenges.

Leaving you with the inspiration of the Scripture in Jeremiah 17:7 which says, “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord."
