i was slightly shocked to discover, in the course of planning my card, that except for the admittedly AWESOME eyelet outlet chicken brads, i don't own ANY products with farm animals on them. go figure! i do however, have quite a nice stash of falling-apart vintage children's books that i grab up at garage sales... (people are always stunned that i'm actively seeking the ones whose covers are dangling and which contain more scribbled-on pages than clean, lol!) ...this page from a visual dictionary seemed like the PERFECT background for the theme!
i'm jumping in on retro rubber's "critter time" challenge again, since i have an animal or two (or six!) on here, lol. i also have a couple of older stamps in play: i've inked only half of unity's, "hey girlfriend" sentiment (which was an xmas present some years ago... maybe... 2012ish?) and swapped out the "hey" for the more farm-centric "hay" using a freckled fawn alphabet* i treated myself to last summer.
need a little more rustic inspiration? head on over to the SOS blogstead, y'all, and check out the DT's amazing creations!
*this has since become my all-time favorite alphabet set, and i'm so pleased i grabbed it at the time, because when i went back like 2 weeks later it was GONE... and i've never seen it for sale ANYWHERE since then! carpe deal-um, my friends; seize the clearance sale bargains!!! :)
