This card uses images from 'Punny Farm',a new release from My Favorite Things that will be available on Wed. Jan 9th. There are a TON of adorable images and sentiments in this set (23!)--a horse, cow, pig, sheep, chickens, baby chicks, cat, mouse....plus a bunch of sentiments too! A LOT of fun to play with!
I had this farm-scene tag-card in my mind as soon as I saw the set. I wanted to portray (somewhat) a day in the life of our adorable little farm girl....doing her chores and taking care of her lovable animals. Each of the animals are cut out and popped up on dimensionals, and the heads are trimmed and popped up on a second layer of dimensionals to give the scenes some depth. The fences are made from some leathery-textured paper found at Michael's-I just trimmed thin strips and arranged them to look like a fence you'd find in an animal pen on the farm. I used some scraps of burlap and denim from DH's old jeans to add to the 'farm' theme. All of the trees and grass were created using greenery and branch stamps from another MFT set, It's a Jungle Out There. Our little farm girl's work boots were given a little bit of sparkle with a clear Spica glitter pen (gotta have some bling while doing all of those chores!) Thanks for looking----I hope you like it! Have a great day! (Please see the individual photos for a closer look at each panel.)
Last month's MFT release party was a riot--so, DON'T FORGET......
My Favorite Things will be hosting a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday night (January 9th) from 9-11 pm EASTERN time. There will be sneak peeks, lots of fun and a chance to become MFT’s next Guest Designer. Head over to the MFT forum for more details!

This is an amazing piece of art ..... absolutely incredible. If you had told me that this was hand stamped and created, I would not have believed you. In my dreams I could only stamp a quarter of this. Thanks so much for sharing!!!
