Hello my fabulous crafty friends. Some of you may be first-time visitors who came here from Joy's Life. Welcome!! I look forward to getting to know everyone.
Below is a card I made for the Joy's Life DT challenge to use a sentiment that complements a photo. Well, this was a bit of a challenge for me. You see, I'm not really a scrapbooker. I'm a card maker, and I also occasionally make other paper craft projects. While I could have attempted a scrapbook page, I decided to stay true to my style and make a card. Besides, I wanted readers to know that Joy's Life stamps are versatile. They work well with cards, scrapbooks, tags or other craft projects.
I really wanted to use the Hay There! stamp from the Barnyard Puns set. I initially found a photo of a horse chewing on hay, but after I printed the photo, I didn't like it, so I found this cute free image of a doggy in a hay field. He looks like he's saying "hi" doesn't he?
I sized the image to 2x1.5 inches. I created the little stack of hay by cutting beige and kraft paper into small strips. I tied them with some baker's twine and proceeded to quill the edges a bit to make it look like real hay. I had these adorable dog bone buttons that fit on the hay perfectly. The paw prints are also created with a Joy's Life stamp. The stamp is from the Lots of Pun set.
Thanks for visiting!! I look forward to "seeing" you again next week!!
