Down On The Farm

Hello All,
This week the challenge at "The Sisterhood of Crafters" is "Animals!!
I had so many things to choose from it was mind!!
I decided to go with this super cute "Stacked Animal" stamp from Cottage Cuts.
I really wanted to use Copics on it, but I am still building up my "Copic" stash
and just didn't have enough colors to "shade" with..
So I choose to use my TH Distress markers and did a bit of water coloring!!
I added a bit of "Wink of Stella" here and there.
The edges were distressed and I sponged on some TH "Old Paper" ink.

Being farm animals and all, I decided gingham was in order, but once I pulled out
my lily bee design 6 x 6 Double Dutch paper pad with the gingham papers, it also
had this cute country looking paper in it with all these circles...perfect right....but
dang it, I ended up covering most of it anyhow and you can barely see!!

So I did end up using some gingham with my ribbon  my brad, plus the little banner!!!

Inside I am putting a computer generated greeting:
 "I hope your birthday stacks up to all you thought it would be".....

I hope you will pop on over to "The Sisterhood blog" and see what all the other "Sistah's"
have designed for you and join in the challenge with us!!!
See "ya'all" there (sorry, couldn't resist, being "down on the farm and all!!!)
