My Time to Craft #347 Down on the Farm

Eek! I'm late! Apologies! I really must learn that writing a 'To Do' list is useless if I don't do what's on the list! D'oh!

Anyway, our new Challenge at My Time to Craft! is Down on the Farm so we'd like to see Farm animals - horses, pigs, sheep, chickens, cows - or a tractor!

I made this Get Well card for a friend undergoing an operation. The cow is purple (and I'll explain why later) and is from Paper Smooches' Chubby Chums stamp set. Such fun images! The flowers and mushrooms and snail are from Lawn Fawn's Gleeful Gardens set. The 'Get Well' is from Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches and the 'sooooon' is made with stickers from my stash.

So why a Purple Cow? Well, Gelett Burgess wrote this silly poem:

I never saw a purple cow
I never hope to see one
But this I'll tell you anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.

Then Carolyn Wells wrote some delicious parodies of well-known poems on the same subject. Take a look! Even if you don't know the originals (and there are some that I don't know at all) they are still very funny!

The Purple Cow Parodies

I hope you enjoy them!

Do also go and see my teamies' great creations for the challenge, there's a wonderful variety there to inspire you!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Great card Mags, love all the bright summery colours and the super purple cow. I am sure this card cheered your friend up after the operation.
