Amy R's Friday Sketch 52- Happy Thoughts on the Farm

Happy Monday to all those in blogland :) I know today was an okay day here- back to work, the kids were wild by the end of the day.. not much changes :) The only saving grace is a half day on Friday and I am getting my SU mini preorder sets on Thursday. Looking forward to it :) As usual, had to get my Amy R Friday Sketch done! I love this week's sketch. I did have to move my ribbon down since I can't tie a bow still to save my life. I also got rid of the scalloped circle behind the sentiment circle because it covered too much of my horsey.

Supplies: Stamps- McSplendid Farm by The Greeting Farm found at ATS; Paper- Urban Prarie by Basic Grey; CS- SU; Ink- Palette Noir and Burnt Umber; Coloring Medium- Copic Ciaos; Ribbon- CTMH; Other- 1 1/4" punch, SU Scalloped Border Punch.

Aren't these images so cute?! They're kinda anime-ish. This is my second The Greeting Farm set. I was so happy ATS started carrying them(btw- the Magnolia Easter Collection stamps are now available too!). I colored the image last night while Nate was watching his nighttime Backyardigans. I finished the card up today. I hadn't used this paper before but it was perfectly farmy for me :) I masked the two characters as well- something I don't do much but I wanted them together!

I will def. be back soon for the ATS DT Challenge. I hope it's a color or sketch challenge :) Have a fantabulous week! I'll be getting an Ultrasound to check for anything wrong in the uterus/reproductive system and Nate has an appt. with a gastrointestinal doctor to check his tummy- yet another fun week. Wish us luck :)
