There's Just Something About a Fat Cow

That makes me giggle. Well, in this case, a fat little Longhorn. I'd like to think he's not a steer either. :) Wait - do longhorn girl cows have horns? I can't ever remember. Now I'm confused.

But let me back up.

My dear little Libby came up to see me for lunch one day - I am lucky enough to have a Central Market cafe in my building - and she brought her friend Jimmye, who owns Texana Designs - and I taught them brayer tricks during my lunch hour. Everyone needs a brayer trick, right? And the brayer goddess of the world, Michelle Zindorf, who taught her amazing workshop at my house last year, was kind enough to actually teach me which end to use and all that :) so I was somewhat useful, if not Michelle-ish.

So we brayered, and Libby wrestled tea out of a giant crock for us, and Jimmye, who is a little sparkly gem of a lady, gave me this adorable stamp WITH A FAT LITTLE LONGHORN ON IT! I think I said "awww" about forty squillion times.

I AM so thankful for Jimmye and Libby and I wish I got four hour lawyer lunches so I could stamp downstairs with them every day.

I stamped this fat little guy in India Ink on Stampin' Up! watercolor paper, and then used my Aqua Painter to paint him and his landscape with Dusty Durango, Really Rust, Summer Sun, Cameo Coral, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel.

I used a rubon and DSP from the Hostess Prints Pack to finish off my chubby bovine.

I hope you like him.
