Birthday Herd for FestiveFriday #ff0119

Happy Friday.

It's another fabulous day of celebration at Festive Friday and this week our celebration day is Farmer's Day.  Really, where would we be without the farmers?  I love a good farmer's market with just out of the garden goodies and sharing stories and getting tips from the people who grow the food.  So much better than picking things up at the supermarket wrapped in plastic.  I try to be mindful of the people who planted, grew and picked the food with every meal. :-)  The INSPO list this week was perfect for my (relatively) new set called Birthday Herd from My Favorite Things.  This is another card that will be going off to Cards For Cubs.

Here's a sneak peek

As always with our INSPO list.  You don't need to follow the theme.  All you need to do is choose at least three words from the list and incorporate those into your card.  If you check out the design team cards, you will see what a different take we all had on the INSPO list.  It's this variety that led me to play along with the challenges long before I became a design team member. 

Here's the INSPO list:

For my card I stamped two of the sets of herd images onto cardstock and colored them with my Copic Markers and die-cut two photo frames and adhered them to the images.  I stamped a background with the Happy Birthday background stamp.  My card came together very quickly!

Here's my card:


I guess it's obvious that Green was one of my INSPO words :-)  I also chose die-cuts and farm animals.

I hope you will join us and play along with our challenge this week.  We would love to see what you create with this list!  As always, our design team have some fabulous inspiration for you.
