Last Tuesday on the Teapot Tuesday Challenge, Cindy (aka Mothermark) told about her favorite cow, Alicia. Her cow was a contestant in the California Cow contest. However, OUR cow of choice, Kirsten, won the contest. The teapot Cindy chose had a cow jumping over the moon, so Cindy used that to tell us about Alicia and Alicia's brother. You simply MUST read the story HERE, but be sure to scroll down to read my reply to her.
As usual, I STARTED to create a card (if Cindy only knew how many times I planned a card for Tuesday's challenge then didn't get it done), but didn't get to it. I DID ask my daughter Bethany to draw a cow jumping over the moon for me. She typically draws cartoonish, or, um, interesting looking people, but not animals as often. Now, I couldn't draw a stick figure of a horse, so I have no room to talk! When she brought this to me, she said she wasn't really sure what I wanted. I suppose I should show you the black & white version before I "colored" it on Photoshop:
My first thought was that this cow was not jumping but she was touching a very large chocolate chip cookie! I think Kirsten might be a little timid, so jumping just seemed like a bit much. That, or all the cold arctic air she's been living in has caused brain damage. She seems to think the moon is more like a big cookie. Or perhaps she really IS related to me and knows a good thing when she sees it: Jumping is BAD, CHOCOLATE is GOOD! Whatever the cause, I feel certain that she will need to give up her position as California's newest cow star to the runner up, Alicia. Now, THAT would be something to put Cindy over the moon!
What you see on here is not a card (yet), but an amateur Photoshop user trying to make a cow stepping on a chocolate chip cookie look like a cow jumping over the moon. I say I leave the art to my daughter & move on to this week's challenge! LOL!
