This adorable card really depicts life on the farm.
But it also reminds me of that classic children’s story about the animals that piled onto each other’s backs.
I have searched high and low for the title and I can’t find it!
So, if you’re reading this blog and know which story I’m referring to -please drop me a comment below!
Now, back to this card that I’ve titled On the Farm.
Our oldest grandson adores animals and he knows them so well!
So, when I saw this stampset with matching dies in the current mini catalogue – it was just a no-brainer for me.
Hopefully, you grabbed the free Sale-a-Bration paper that matched with the bundle?
If you did, you can use that paper and die cut out the cow and pig.
But if you didn’t, then just stamp and die cut the images.
