This week I am getting in touch with my country side. I grew up in town but I had a number of friends and an aunt and uncle who had farms that I spent my summer vacations going to. 

I learned how to milk cows, pick stones in the fields and clean out pig pens and much more!We worked hard ..... and yes we had some fun too! Honestly I'm a farm girl at heart. 

"Clarebelle & Riley" bring back some very fun memories for me! 

After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers, I cut it out using a stitched square die. The sentiment is part of a larger sentiment but I thought it fit this stamps perfectly. 
I really wanted to find a way to combine patterned paper that in my mind have kind of a country feel to them - gingham, burlap, denim and barn board. I was able to combine paper from two different companies and my stash to achieve my country feel. 
Some matching blue gumdrops finish off my card.
