This is a recording, it is still hot and sticky and I'm getting really crabby!!!!!!  Well, they are promising lower humidity for the next few days...........we'll see.

Today's card is for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  The challenge this week was to make a card with a theme to go with a song title.  I chose "Down on the Farm", no, not the Bob Evans commercial, the song by
Tim McGraw!!!

The image is, of course, Tilda by Magnolia holding a pig.  The fence is also a Magnolia image (thanks, Steph)
Papers are My Mind's Eye, Simply Delightful.  I have colored with Copic Markers.  The flower is Prima.  The gingerbread corner is a Sizzix corner die.  The bird stick pin is K&Company.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I sponged the oval background with distress inks.  The faux stitching is a stamp by Hero Arts. The yellow chick's border is Martha Stewart.

The sketch layout is one provided each Friday by my local stamp store and Elisabeth.

Hope you had a great Thursday.  Until later..................
