Just Us Girls - COLOR challenge!

 Just Us Girls are ALL colorful this week, my sweet friends!
Cheerful, summery, delightful color, hosted by our equally 
delightful, Lisa!  These colors are BOUND and determined 
to inspire some super craftiness - I hope, hope, hope you'll
play with us this week! 

Check out the radiant inspiration graphic!

And our super team of talented designers, gettin' 
their COLOR onnnnnn!  Mmmmm, hmmmmm!


 These seasonal colors were easy and FUN to craft with.
I went a shade or two subdued, however.  It's a bittersweet
time around Rancho Durenberger, as we are thinking the
end of the road is near for our beloved, Auntie Cow.  She
is still cheerful and content, but is less and less able to stay
on her feet for long.  Husband has had the honor of this dear
gal's company, for OVER thirty years!  That's VERY old
for a cow, even in CALIFORNIA
 - the land of happy cows...

So, subdued use of color was HOW I rolled this week.
(But I REALLY like the results!}

I hope you'll think some good thoughts for our friend.

Although, it's hard to be terribly sad for a cow, who simply 
MUST be the envy of the local cow community - a REVERED 
pet and companion for OVER three decades -
 always free to roam and graze... 
~ Her mother was "MamaCow" the namesake of my blog! ~

Yes, my dear friends, a blessed life, she has surely had. 

I will be praying for a peaceful passing, for a 
dignified lady.   She has been a beautiful bovine companion, and
 a satisfying sight in the grassy acres of Rancho Durenberger.  

Have a MOOOOO-ving day, and thank you for letting me 
share her with you!  (YOU are MOOOOOO-va-lous!)

God bless your sweet cow. She does look like she is at peace.

I love your beautiful serene use of the colors. The windmill and the plaid paper are gorgeous.

Your card instantly reminded me of a farm -- perfectly inspired too! :)

Aww, so sorry about your beloved cow. Her eyes looked pained from age. Thirty years is a long time to have a pet...I wish my little Lizie could live that long, but we all have an expiration date, don't we? I'm sure she'll be welcomed with open arms in cow heaven!

Your card is very cool! I love how your mood translates into your crafting.
