I have become totally and completely addicted to FarmTown, a game on Facebook. I blame this addiction mainly to 3 people....GrammaT, AussieAlli and Scraparazzi. They made fun of the little farm I had because I let things die. I didn't care, I didn't need no stinkin virtual farm! But then I visited their farms....the lush green fields, the crops of pineapples, peppers, pumpkins, strawberries and so much more...I HAD TO HAVE THOSE! And that was it...HI MY NAME IS OKIE AND I AM A FARMTOWN ADDICT! *knows a few readers are saying in their heads "hi okie" and nodding because they too are addicts*.
Oh yes....the intro above is for this card. I even made a card that is perfect for FarmTown! I had this paper from Basic Grey Offbeat collection and had no idea what to do with it, but the other day while doing some plowing and then planting peas the paper came to my mind and I knew what I could do with the paper!
-Sentiment stamp from My Favorite Things "Can Ya Dig It?" collection
-TBBM for the sentiment paper
-New Arrival for the pea
-Purple Cow trimmer for the scallop edge on red patterned paper strip
-Pattern paper is Basic Grey Off beat Collection
-Card base is Stampin Up Close to Cocoa
- Card stock for the pea is Prism
-Tiny Mosaic Cuttlebug folder on the green mat
-Cat eye chestnut roan chalk ink for the distressed inking.
-Robin's Nest mini embellies, aka mini skittles, for the peas.
If you look up close you can see where the vine of the pea is messed up, not sure if that is because my E had problems or if I need a new blade. I still have problems cutting some things with my Expressions, but overall I have to say I love it!
Click the pics if you want to see them close up.
Here you can see where I used the skittles which is going to make this more expensive to mail but I think it is the perfect touch and looks so good on the pea. I generally like to put the main image on mounting foam but with the use of the embellies I knew it would make it way to thick so opted to just mount the sentiment on this card.
Anyway....gotta get back to the farm. I got some corn that is ready for harvestin'!
