My George {SFYTT}...

Before I share my SFYTT card with you, using the above, fabulous sketch from Jen, I have to give you a little background on my youngest son, George. George is 2 1/2, loves farming with his cows, tractors, round bales and skid loader (or "skoader" as he calls it), baseball, fishing and he also loves Idgie, our 2 year old mini dachshund. Just the other day, he was pretending that Idgie was a "black sheep" as he herded her here and there. So you see, Idgie wears many hats in George's life: black sheep, favorite dog, or even...a cow! With that being said, I was inspired to use this week's sketch to create a "George and Idgie" love story sort of card using MFT's Boy & Dog-Doggone Cute!

You see, if George had his way (which he does most of the time), Idgie would be able to 'moo' just like his cows, and judging by the loving way she's looking at him on today's card says it all: she'd 'moo' if she could!

My Favorite Things is sponsoring today's SFYTT with a $25 gift certificate and on of their Die-namics jumbo scallop dies, so make sure you play along and link your creation to Jen's blog! You'll see more MFT goodness on a few more of the SFYTT samples today, so let's get on with roll call.

Before I go, I just want to share a couple shots of the "real" George and Idgie.

Real farming at Uncle Mike's...

Play farming with Idgie...

Have a great weekend, and a Happy Mother's Day if I don't see you tomorrow!

Annika said...

Awww, your story is just SO cute - as is the card to go with it! Love the cork letters and the way you propped up the middle one, adds so much interest!
My boy is so used to have a big dog that it's very hard to convince him that all the smaller dogs are NOT puppies! :D
