From Farm to Zoo.....


     Today I have a double post for you all.  My first card is for Little Red Wagon #382, which is Down On the Farm.

     I believe I will also enter this for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is Anything goes.

     For this card I used stamps as follows.  The sheep are from Inkadinkado, The sentiment is an unknown, The dots around the sentiments are a stubby stamp from Stamps by Judith. The clock is from a Layers of Life kit from Unity Stamps, and my grass was made with and Art Impressions grass stamp.  The fence is a Martha Stewart border punch.  I added blue sticky pearls as accents.  I used assorted inks and Copic markers to color.

     There is nothing like ripping the sheep out of the barn so they can be counted on a sleepless night!


     Next, we visit the zoo, with this fun card I made for a co-worker.  This kid was fresh out of HS and one of the biggest clutz's I have ever known.  He broke everything he touched and would trip and fall constantly.  We use to say he was like an elephant on roller skates... well I had one on ice skates and so I went with it!

     I made this for the current challenge at Cuttlebug Mania, called It's a Zoo Out There!  My elephant is from Rubber Cottage and was stamped an cut out with my stitched oval dies from MFT.  The Ka-Boom stamp is unmounted and unknown.  My background was created with a Tim Holtz Shatter stencil, which I borrowed from a friend.  It was mounted on a soft sand base.  Sticky prisma gems were added to look a little icy.  I used assorted inks for distressing and Copic markers for coloring.

     Sorry this post is so long.  Thanks for seeing it through.  Have a wonderful Thursday!
