One is just a baby, recently weened from her mama. She's red and will make a perfect "companion" for our little bull, Ribeye.
The other cow we're picking up is a little brown cow who's already got a bun in her oven. (Do you think that saying applies to cows, too?) We're excited to have them join our barnyard family. Stay tuned for photos!
Now for crafty chatter! Today's Blogger's Challenge Friday theme is Inspired By. We're supposed to choose something like a rug, sweater, color pattern, etc. to inspire our project.
I have been drooling over the holiday Pottery Barn catalog, and the color combination of cranberry, white and olive green really jump out at me as being very fresh and seasonal. So I chose the colors in this Pottery Barn photo as my inspiration for this card. It was pretty easy to find paper to use. My 6x6 tablet of Figgy Pudding paper by Basic Grey has been on the top of my paper stack all week! It's filled with rich reds and greens and browns, just perfect for this week's inspiration project!
The snowman stamp on this card is one of my own Whipper Snapper images, Pudgy. He's stamped on shimmery white paper and colored with Copic markers.
Thursday's challenge at SplitCoast was to use stitching on our card, so I incorporated that challenge into this project. In fact, I think I went a little wild with the sewing machine. Every layer has at least two rows of stitching, in either straight stitch, zig zag, or a combination of the two. Even the sentiment tag (stamp by A Muse) got stitched! What could be better than a pudgy snowman for holiday greetings!
Hope your Thanksgiving was grand! We got fat on yummy turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and other holiday fixings. Yum!
