Craft-a-scene DT: Down on the Farm!

Hello there all - and a very Happy Easter to you! We've been having a fabulous family time - the gnome hunt at Rufford Old Hall was lots of fun yesterday - the girls really enjoyed themselves tearing around the garden lloking for gnomes. Then they enjoyed the Easter Egg they got for the prize. After a lovely lunch we then played a little gnome hoopla - then took the girls to a craft session - making Easter bonnets. Don't they look fab?

Now onto my news - I 've been asked to join the DT at Craft-a-scene! I'm so thrilled - it really is a challenge for me - but its one I really want to do! I hope I don't let them down!

My first card is for their new challenge which starts today - its called 'down-on-farm'. The idea is to create a scene relating to the months theme - and see how you do!

Here's mine:

I've used stamps from Sheena douglass - they were the create a scene stamps that she did when she was at creative Expressions. This set is called Countryside I think. My brayer wasn't behaving but I used cut and dry foam and shabby shutters DI and some hill masks that I cut from paper to make the background. The tractor and wall were added in the foreground and the trees and cows were stamped in the background. Looking forward to creating my next one which will be for next Sunday.

I'd like to enter this card for:

Sunday Stamperpinkleart.: Nature
Panpastelpanpasteluk: Anything goes

I hope you have a truely wonderful Easter Sunday. I've got to set my girls off on their Easter Egg hunt at home - not sure what else the day will bring! Have fun yourselves and thanks for dropping by!

Big Hugs
