Cows versus Horses blog hop

Welcome to today's blog hop. Today celebrates 2 special holidays: LOVE A COW DAY and NATIONAL HORSE DAY so to celebrate some very talented crafters have come together to show off their work and to pick their favorite animal: horse or cow. Have fun seeing the projects that revolve around these two wonderful animals as well as find out who is our winner in Cows Verses Horses Blog Hop!

Jearise over at is our hostess today and she is giving the digital black and white stamps of the horse and cow pictured on our blog button. All you have to do is become a follower of hers and hop through leaving a comment on the other crafter's blogs as well as hers.

You should have come from Jearise's blog to my blog.

Did you guess what animal I picked? Cow! There are some horses around here, but since I live in cow country, I felt that was my obvious choice. Also, I decided to use this hop as an excuse to start a recipe book, and since I don't eat horses...

I cut two 6 by 6 squares of thick paperboard (waste not, want not, right?), glued some wallpaper from a sample kitchen and bath wallpaper book to it, added some beef cuts from the From My Kitchen Cricut cart, a hamburger and oven mitt cut from the Nifty Fifties cart, punched some eyelets on the side and voila! Just need to make some pockets with the remaining wallpaper from the page I used once my computer is fixed and I can use Sure Cuts A Lot again. Then, of course, make some more pages!

Thank you for stopping by today and now please continue on to Lynne!
