A Birthday "Hay There!" - Seize the Birthday #6

 Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Hooray it's Friday night and I don't think anything out of the ordinary is planned for tomorrow, YAY!!  I hope I can steal a few hours and do some more organizing in my craft room in between loads of laundry.  I've been putting off the wash because of a plumbing issue but we are back in good order so....laundry is at the top of the list.  We'll see what tomorrow brings!

I've been working on this card the last couple of days.  I started coloring late last evening and finally finished it this afternoon.  Love this designer paper from Simple Stories (Harvest Lane), I thought it was perfect for the farm scene.  As you can see, I am entering this into the second half of the Seize the Birthday challenge.  This week is the masculine card sketch and I am really enjoying building my birthday card collection for the guys.  

The fun stamp set is from Taylored Expressions called Green Acres.  I've used the Taylored Expressions Dies (cloud, banner) as well as the Spellbinder Nestabilities Standard Circle.
Other Ingredients:  Bazzill, Neenah card stock; Martha Stewart fence border punch; Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Inks (peeled paint, broken china); Copic Markers to color the images.

Have a great weekend and thank you for visiting!

Most assuredly I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.  John 5:24
