Funny Farm

I know this is a newly retired set but can you believe I've had it sitting here, uncut, for two years...just planning to have a card class with it. It's such a cute set and the sayings that go along with it just crack me up.

I've finally found (made!) the time to have a class...so if you live in the DC area, we're making 5 cards for just $5!!! Class is on Tuesday, 26 July - from 10-12. Drop me a note if you'd like to come.

This first card is CASED from the talented Heather Scott...from the layout to the colors. I used colored pencils and gamsol and unfortunately with the bad weather we're having, I couldn't really get a good photo. It looks much smoother in real life.



This next card I watercolored the chicken with Tombow markers and an aquabrush...if you know me, I love my chickens! Sometimes I feel like my 5 "ladies" in the backyard give me this look when I come empty handed...they love treats!



PS. The reds DO match on the card...I'm battling with camera today, even snapping a photo outside didn't give me much light. Sorry!

I love the chicken card...I have the chicken wire stamp now I have an idea of how to use it (may have to buy some stamps) Sorry I can't make the class but it is VBS week.
