Got Milk?

After making these cards this weekend, I stumbled across a theme...
Here are my three cards that either
 produce, consume, or utilize...

For-heifer Fabulous
This adorable image is a digi from Karen's Doodles
titled, Bovine Beauty.

 Random black shapes attached to the white cardstock card.
The white frame is attached by 3D dots to allow room for the 3D image behind.

 Embellished with flowers, mesh, curled wire, brads, leaves, pearls, buttons, twine and ribbon.
Typed sentiment from PC and embossed BG with purple gems for accents.
Also, just a reminder,
 that over at Karen's Doodles,
 they are still having a DT call.
Items Used:
Pre-made white frame
Printed milk containers that I wrote Milk onto 
Printed hay bails for pasture "ambiance"
Hand-drawn fence post
Sponged background of sky and grass

Patriotic Puddy-Tat
Playing around with textures and decided to use
 3 Spellbinder Nestabilities circles
 to create a "bowl" look for the cat.
Those are supposed to be yarn balls I created...
jury still out on that one.
Cat collar stickers with one I stamped "Liberty" for her name

This little consumer of milk was created using this sketch

This fluffy fury feline image is free from Rick St. Dennis 

and lastly...
My Kind of Chef
This is Chef Marci from

She has her little table filling up with delectable desserts.

I didn't get a picture of her feet, but they are visible under the table.

I created a metal rack for all her pots and pans to hang from as well.

This is what it says on the inside...
The desserts are from Stampin' Up! stamp set,
 Hang In There

Thanks so much for stopping by 
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
