Yikes, I don’t have anything remotely resembling these images, so I opted to just use the colors and a couple of farm-related sets from PTI and Artistic Outpost:
Everything is pretty straightforward….I popped up the little barn and circular emblem, stitched on some buttons, stamped my woodgrain and animals in white and added some barbed wire and checked border!
I added some stamping on the inside too!
This is going to my BIL for his upcoming birthday! If you have any questions about products or techniques, be sure to shoot me an email! Meanwhile, stop on over at the ColourQ blog to see what the other designers created. It always amazes me how one photo inspires so many different beautiful creations! We want to see what you do with this inspiration as well, so be sure to share it with us too!
Speaking of critters, yesterday, coming back up through our yard from the garden, I realized I had walked right past this:
It was a small snapping turtle; we see them almost every spring, but it is pretty late in the season for them to be walking from the creek behind our house to the swampy area in front of our house! I told John to bring Cassidy out….her comment was (as it is to everything these days) “I don’t like it”!
John poked it a little with a stick, and it did something I have never seen a turtle do---it stretched its legs and lifted its shell up several inches off the ground—maybe a fight mechanism:
Cassidy then decided it was okay to look at it, but from afar:
Within a few minutes, it had walked past our house and began its descent down our front yard hill to the swamp! Ahhh, life in the country! Have a blessed day!
