 Grab your pitchforks and your overalls because this hoe down is about to begin!!
For my project I made "Everything is Fun with You" Card. 

This card is made featuring a Penny Black stamp…"for a spin." I just couldn't resist this adorable stamp! Sentiment is from Lawn Fawn "Love You S'more" stamp set and the pattern paper is from Jenni Bowlin Die Cut Journaling Card Pad. I used my Copics to color the image. I decided to make this card 3 dimensional by stamping twice and fussy cutting the adorable chickens and the head to the cow. I adhered them using foam dots to add a little more dimension. I topped off this card with some pretty ribbon, jute and cute buttons I had in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by today.
