Birthday Cow!

Supplies: papers all from MME;
cow clip from Fancy Pants; buttons from stash;
Stampendous Fun Flock - Cotton Ball;
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic;
sentiment from Kaisercraft; Palette Noir ink

Whose crazy idea was it to use different colours of embroidery floss?
(Oh. Yeah. Right....took forever but it does look cool!)

  Fuzzy bits & shiny balloon!
My poor computer isn't home yet...but I've managed to commandeer hubby's laptop which has a nearly full-size keyboard for my big clumsy fingers! Yahoo! Blurfing here I I've missed you :)
I don't know that I've gotten a lot done without the internet - some housecleaning, and actually, a LOT of reading. I still have to convince myself to go tackle the bathroom, though. 
The 'computer brain repairman' (as Connor calls him) promised to have it ready for pickup today, so over the weekend I should get caught up on emails & such - I know there's a few there that I should have gotten to before, but of course I didn't expect to be losing the darn thing. 
ETA: I've been blog-surfing but haven't been able to figure out how to bypass hubby's security settings to be able to leave comments...I'll be catching up on those this weekend as well. I miss you guys :)

This is adorable... and those multi coloured stitched buttons were really worth the effort! Love it!
Would you believe I am in the middle of making a 'birthday cow' card myself.... for my husband!

And we miss you!! Love the different colours of floss in the buttons - definitely worth the effort. And the buttons look cool in between the zig zags. Love all the colours but what's up with that cow's udder? Looks like it's having a party of it's own!! LOL!
Hope the computer brain repair man did his thing and got you hooked back up today. :)

And I know JJ gave you the Leibster blog award at the same time she gave it to me but I'm giving it to you as well because you ROCK!
