How did I get so far behind?

I have no idea how things have gotten so far out of control...I spent the last couple of hours commenting on those whose blogs I love to visit, and I still have the cards on the different challenges to comment on, AND then a few emails to do. I'm just wondering if the rose bed can wait for its weeding and spraying one more day, or if I should try to 'do it all'... Well, only time will tell today.

I've got a card for the Fusion Card Challenge. A while back, I got this cute stamp set from My Cute Stamps, and I find I still get a chuckle out of these little critters. Some stamps you just know you'll love forever. That's this set...among many. In the past, I've tried to do the fusion of both challenges, but today, I am only doing the "Lesley" side of the Fusion. (Sorry to the whole left side of the DT...), but I had fun with it and hope you'll find a little giggle at this stack of critters. This is the inspiration:


Both sides are pretty darn cool. 
This is my take:


Can you guess which animal is my favorite? Hint: I'm from 'Wiscownsin'...hahahaha (sorry). Bazzill white card base, red and black scraps, We R Memory Keepers green gingham, the Twinery twine, Su black ink, various Copics, and the sentiment is from TAWS Adorabowl and has been masked so that just the HI shows. And that's it! Have a good rest of your Sunday. Happy dances everyone.

I know the feeling of things getting so hectic your head spins. That's how I felt a couple of months ago. Luckily things are slowing down now.

Super cute take on the challenge and I think your Wiscownsin cow is adorable! LOL!

This puts the whimsi in whimsical, Bevie! It always karacks me up, too, to see a stack of animals. The boys in Iowa used to do something called "cow tipping" - was that a Wiscowsin thing, too? Anyway, I'm glad you let the other stuff go and made a happy dance card for us!!

Yep, the cow s definitely my favorite too! Awesome coloring - especially love how you colored the chicken (or is it a rooster?) The green gingham totally rocks this country scene :)

I can see why you like these little guys. They would make anybody smile. I like how you pulled the entire card together with a decidedly country feel, befitting Wiscownsin.

Hee! Love those animals all stacked up on top of each other. So cute!

Yes indeed, I fully understand the 'busy-ness' of crafting, posting, commenting - and then the 'other stuff' that needs attention! So glad you took time for yourself to create this deliciously charming card! Stack o'critters = day-brightening and smile-making in a major way! LOVE it!!
