Today at Mark's Finest Papers our challenge was to create a shaped card other than an A2.
My images are a sneak peek of the new release next week of "Fun On the Farm". The images I used were the Cow, Pig, and Horse. And of course, I had to put Speedy the Cat in the hayloft as he is wearing a straw hat! You can find the link to this barn template on my blog at www.chocolatecraftsandbearsohmy.blogspot.com. I made the silo from a scrap of paper that was on my table and the triangle roof was also a scrap from another project. I just 1/4" white strips of paper to outline the barn doors and inside the barn. The trees are a Sizzx die, the fence a Martha Stewart border punch. The straw is the Martha Stewart Branch punch which I happened to break during the making of this card and cried me a river over that one....lol My favorite punch too!!!
This is also my second card for the Teaparty challenge this week with the destination station of Hope and Hugs for Sick Kids. I barely have the blue, yellow, green color combo-but I made it....lol Hope you can join us this week at MFP. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh. My. Goodness. Bearzi.
This is stinkin' cute. Trust me - I grew up on a farm. I know what barns smell like. So the "stinkin" part is fer sure! And the "cute" part is just plain obvious. How fantastic! Love all the details - and we know that our Bearzi is a stickler for details!! Love how the doors open to reveal all the "stinkin' cute" animals inside. You rocked this little farm scene girlfriend!
Now, if I happen to hear of flooding in Georgia, I'll know why. The fact that you broke your branch punch and cried a river (obviously, who wouldn't) would explain it. I shall have a moment of silence here for your broken punch. Can you find a new one? Sure do hope so!

When I think that there is no way for her to top "that" you come up with something even more amazing...I love this!! Every detail right up to Speedy is perfect. So sorry about your branch punch. I joined Heather in that moment of silence. RIPP (Rest in peace, punch).
