Thank you

mediums

It's time for another CHF challenge over on the Cornish Heritage Farms Blog.  This week the challenge is hosted by Irit Shalom.
This time round our challenge is to  use 3 different mediums over your project (like mist/marker/embossing powder or any other mediums).

I embossed Ornamental Beauty in clear embossing powder and then sponged on distress inks. Stamped sentiment also from Ornamental Beauty and used Spellbinder Oval to cut it out.

If you would like to play along with us of course we would love to have you!

To play create a card using CHF images. You can use either CHF digi or rubber stamps to create a card or project.... anything you like as long as the stamps are Cornish Heritage Farms. (Yes, they can be older stamps.)

Once you have created your card/project head over to the CHF Blog and place a comment with a link to your card/project the related post so that we can see what you created. If you upload your card/project to SCS don't forget to include the keywordCHF57. We can't wait to see what you create!

    What’s Happening and Cake

    recipeovalcircleajh

    Time for another CCEE Stampers challenge. Our challenge this week is a Recipe Challenge … Use 2 circles, 1 oval and two or more octagons (or hexagons/decagons) on your card.

    I used this fun set from Paper Pretties and paired it with a chicken wire background stamp I have for my hexagons. My sentiment is in 1 oval (even though it killed me not to layer it!!). Colored image with prismacolor pencil and blended with odorless mineral spirits. Used a little watercolor paint for the sky.

    Yesterday was also my middle daughter’s birthday. Allie turned 15! Here is the cake I made for her. She drew me a sketch of what she wanted and I produced it.

    Llama showing at the Ohio State Fair

    IMG_0835

    It is that time again for my kids… Fair time! Three out of the four are in 4-H and of course we all can’t be in the same club or take the same projects! Jorden is still a Cloverbud and is in a pig club. Allie took sewing this year (Sewing for Others so she made a dress for her sister) and Benjamin stayed with llamas.

    This past weekend there was a llama show at the State Fair that the club entered. What follows is pictures of Benjamin and his llama Rainy during the show.

    The kids did Youth Judging on the Friday night. Benjamin placed 3rd. Who knows, maybe he’ll become a llama judge when he grows up!

    Jorden used another member’s llama for Musical Llama Rugs. She got down to the top 6th and got eliminated.

    Jorden took her brother’s llama for the costume contest. A birthday party and a clown. Unfortunately the table kept slipping to the side whenever the llama would walk so she didn’t place.

    Close up of the cake. I used MuddPuddles dry sand on the 15!

    Showmanship!

    Benjamin placed 2nd and Gabriel (cousin and fellow club member) placed 1st in Showmanship. Not to shabby considering there were 18 kids in the class!

    For Rainey's first time showing, she did a good job of letting strangers touch her.IMG_0981

    Rainy wanted to stop for a snack but Ben got her through with just maybe one leaf in her mouth.IMG_1003

    This is what the llama sees before walking under. Some don’t even it pay attention to the cat and walk right under while others will put the hooves in and have to be dragged through. We had no clue how Rainy would act.
    IMG_1010



    Love how Rainy is looking up at the cat like “you want me to go through THAT?”
    Bigcat

    Yay! They made it out without Rainy having to be pulled through.

    Last obstacle of the day!

    Now we are gearing up for our County Fair in 2 weeks where we will spend all day long, all week long with the llamas at but thankfully no costumes!

    CCEE1427 Red, White and Blue

    4thJulyTurtleajhcopy

    Time for another CCEE Stampers challenge! 

    Since it is a brand new month so it is time to introduce a new challenge hostess to you. This month Shirley Quarry is hosting the challenge. Shirley is no longer on our Design Team, however as she created the challenges before she left us we are all looking forward to playing along with the challenges she has set us.


    Since this is the 4th of July week in America, we surely need to make a red, white and blue card. Since everyone does not live in the U.S., it does not have to be a patriotic card.

    I pulled out an Our Craft Lounge set that would work for the 4th of July. Of course I used the colors red, white and blue! Added some star eyelets and some star ribbon.
