Farm animals: A Drunken Stampers Challenge
As you'd expect the card is geared towards the recipients' interests or favorite things. In the case of our most recent leaving, and already missed, coworker I got to double up with this week's Drunken Stampers challenge: Farm animals.
The reason for this is that my now former coworker, who was semi-retired, and is now fully retired, is fully retired and living the good life on her farm. I don't actually know for sure that her life is good, but what the hell other kind of life do you live on a farm?
Really, if I was surrounded by fields and an owl-filled barn and mooing and bleating and crowing ... I'd feel good ... for the 10 seconds preceding the realization that I must be lost because I do not live on a farm.
However, we do have two great-horned owls who screech in our yard at midnight every summer night and our neighbors have an annoying rooster. Amazingly I like the wake-me-up, freak-me-out at midnight owls ... I wish the 4:30 a.m. alarm clock rooster would fly away.
Anyhow, this fun and bright card features a lovely red barn from the Heritage Cricut cartridge, glittery sunshine and music notes from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge and two farm animals from Cricut ... but I can't remember which cartridge at the moment.
Personally my favorite bit is the pseudo Dutch hex sign I placed above the barn door: It's from a Stampin' Up set and is embossed in gold. Don't you love it when you feel brilliant? That hex makes me feel brilliant. Or at least slightly clever.
Can you create something clever with farm animals? I bet you can! And we want to see it at Drunken Stampers before midnight Friday, April 29!
