What's Moo?

I'm sorry I have been so neglectful lately! As most of you know, it is my last 20 days of work, and I am just a nervous wreck about leaving things 'undone' there. Also, DD and I are working on a baby shower, and DH and I worked on our business' monthly reports this past weekend. Lots to do, very little free time to do so! I hope to start doing MUCH better in July!

Hopefully, all of you are crafting your little fingers to the bones! Speaking of little fingers, Tami.... any new rings in our future??? lol

So...What's Moo? That's tonight's card title. It features the cute TAC "An-Udder Birthday" set, and TAC papers. The little Rubber Ducky is one of Michael's clear stamps from their $1 bins. The bottom of the card is actually cut out as the shape shows (I have it sitting on black paper background). I made it for a contest (not an online contest) that is supposed to be a swimming type theme. It's so silly that it's kind of cute! Let me know if you think I should file 13 it and not send it in, 'kay??? I was daydreaming about swimming pools, so my inspiration was a pool on maybe the Kayak Pool Company? Anyway, I think I will enter this also into the 3 Clover's Ship Shape Challenge before I mail it off! The challenge is not to use a square or rectangle, and since this has the pool shape for the bottom edge..... you can get a better idea of the card shape in the second photo, which is the inside.

For tonight, sleep well, and I will 'cya' soon!

Patti, I think it's adorable! I love that you cut out the bottom! Made me smile!

Sending peaceful prayers your way...I'm sure you'll get everything done just right!
Take care

Are you kidding, this is amazing! Very clever. You should definitely send it in!!! Besides, I always say to myself, "you can't win if you don't enter, so what the heck!"

Good luck!
