Hay there!!!

Howdy folks, I hope you all had a fab weekend and managed to squeeze in some crafty time. 

I have something to show you today which is a little bit different from my norm.  Its my uncle's 50th on Saturday and my aunt asked me to make a card for the occasion.  Now my uncle is a right old country bumpkin right down to his field of cows.  My kiddies love to go visit and see all the animals and to take the dogs across the fields and perhaps see my uncle on his tractor so when I saw this Stampendous stamp I had to have it. 

I decided to make a criss cross card and the papers are a download from The Digichick and I thought were a perfect match to the stamp.  The hinges were a separate element and I just resized, printed and cut them out.  The image is coloured with copics and pencils.

Didn't think I could get away with putting flowers on it so I used the Wheat images from the download kit and think it works rather well.  I decided to use some buttons and again as I could not go really girly and use ribbon bows I got the raffia out instead.  I really do struggle with mens cards it just seems a little bare to me. 

Challenges I would like to enter:-

Okay folks hope you have a great start to the week and fingers crossed I think we may see some sun!

Take care, happy crafting.
