Hey, What's up??

My friend Jen and I like to stamp together. We rarely get time to, though. Today we spent about 1.5 hours together. I wanted to try my Clear Dollar Stamps barn stamp. Haven't really had a chance to use it. This is what I created. I think you can see by the shadows of the sun that the cow and haystack are on pop dots. I wanted to add a ribbon, but that darn barn is so big it doesn't leave much room for anything else. I then decided to cut off the corner so my pretty patterned paper and the ribbon could be seen.
After making this card the family headed to the pool. I swam with my SCS friend, Lori. Lori lives in Texas. She likes to piggy back on my workouts so she doesn't have to workout herself. So, yes, I swim just by myself, but Lori is with me in spirit. Hey, Lori, we only swam a half mile because I wanted to play with the kids for a bit before the pool closed.

Stamps: Barn from clear dollar stamps
paper: real red, pp from michael's, white
ink: stazon

  1. Very cute! And of course, being from Wisconsin you'd do a good job creating that barn scene. The cow looks happy oo, although I hear a rumor that California cows are happier . . .:)

  2. This is totally cute! I love it....and what a great idea to snip the corner soo the ribbon can show.....mygoodness, that barn IS it was a pain to color...I would have been in the white trim for SURE! Great Job!

  3. Hi Karen! What a supercute farm scene! Love your coloring on the barn and your cow and haystack cut out and popped up is so adorable! Love the gingham paper with it, too! Supercute!

  4. Yikes, this barn must be bigger than a did this one up great/love the idea of cutting off the corner, works great!

  5. Karen, I love this! That barn & Farm Animals are on my wish list (with about 100 other stamps!). You did such a good job & in your RED, too! Love it!
