Mad Cow

Hello everyone! Today I have a High hopes card to share with you. Ive had this image since last summer but this is the first time I've played with it. I love this look on this cow's face-it goes perfect with the "mad cow" sentiment!LOL! The inside is my fave though! Heres a peek at the inside sentiment...okay short story to share with you to let you know why this sentiment cracks me up so much! My Papa Guy was one of my favorite people in the world! He always made me laugh and I loved it! I spent just about every weekend/holiday at their house I just loved being w/him and my Granny! Not that I didnt love you too Mama! Okay so this was back in the day when Reba came out w/the song "Why havent I heard from you" and it played constantly on the radio and CMT. My Papa HATED that song!LOL!! So of course he would mock it. I so wish he was here right now so I could hear him say "Why aint I done heeered from you"!LOL!! Probably not as funny to you but I just had to share. You know we country folks here in Georgia have a BIG accent and we can sure lay it on when we really want to!LOL! I so wish my kids could have met him b/c he would have had a blast with them! I have so many wonderful memories from the time I was able to share with him. I dont know that I will ever give this card away but if I do I know the perfect person to give it to that will get this card as much as I do.

BTW..I got so wrapped up in telling you my story I forgot to add that my layout is from this weeks Crazy 4 challenges sketch by Mercy. You know I love all of Mercys sketches so I had to play along since this was her last week on the DT. Have a great day!
