Farm Baby Congratulations

Inside: It’s a Boy! Congratulations

One of the guys I worked with last year just had his first baby so I wanted to make him a congratulations card. From what I could get out of him is that his wife was doing a vintage farm theme…well that’s how I interpreted it! So I went through my files and searched the internet and thought Farm Critters and Barn from Doodle Pantry fit the theme. I was stumped at first as what to do with the image because I just didn’t want to print it out and stick it on the card. So I went back to the internet where I found this awesome card on The Rubber Cafe Design Team Blog. The design it was the perfect design for all the elements I wanted on the card. My best friend, Stephanie, took my ideals and made the cute saying!

Old Barn Sympathy Card

Old Barn Sympathy

A friend’s father died last week so I wanted to make them a special sympathy card. The dad owned and lived on a farm so I thought this barn image from Doodle Pantry would personalize the card just for them. The red base is the only thing new and not from the scrap bin!

CHALLENGES:
1) September Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Bonus category – use any type of metal. I used brads I have had for YEARS. Funny how you won’t use a color for a long time then all of sudden it is the perfect on for tons of projects. I have use this color brad more in the last year than I have in 8 years of owning them!
2) Use Your Stuff Challenge #151 – Brads
3) Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #234 (SSSC234) – Use the sketch provided as inspiration. Instead of a circle image I went with a rectangle by making the card a 5 x 7
4) Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #50 (DPDC50) – Use a Doodle Pantry image on a project and get the Featured Product FREE!
