Happy Birthday from the Whole Herd

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Did you know that today is "Old Farmers Day" - let's show our appreciation to our farmers by creating something farm related today.

Years ago I purchased the "There She Goes Clear Stamps - Oh Crop" stamp set which contains some fun farm animals, a farmer and a fabulous farm scene as well as a few fun farm sentiments. Somehow it has been sitting in my stamp cupboard unused! When I looked at this stamp set I thought that the farm scene that is included in the set would work perfectly with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Pop-Ups die set as a background to the card .... I was right!

I used my Copic Airbrush to color the base, both sides of the Stitched Hillside Pop-Ups die cut and the grassy areas in the farm scene as I wanted the colors to match and this was easier than coloring it all by hand.

I stamped the cows, pig in mud and farmer and then used my Scan N Cut to cut them out. I added a sun to the top left hand corner of the card which is a really old stamp from my stash!

For the sentiment I grabbed another farm themed stamp set this time for MFT Stamps. 

For the front of my card I used the same farm scene that I used for the backdrop of the inside of the card, and added another farmer and cow. 

The sentiment is another from MFT Stamps.
