VCMP #10

The VCMP #10 Challenge is to make a card to represent your home state. I grew up on a small Indiana farm with a few pigs and beef cattle. We had a few sheep a few years but they were not fun to raise. My dad was not sure about the shearing for them. We had chickens and one year, we got a bunch of chickens with fluffy feathers around their feet and a fancy top of feathers. My dad planted several acres of corn, wheat, and   sorghum. The brothers all got to drive the tractors but I didn't get to learn that skill. I was good at baking cookies and making lemonade for them after they put up hay on hot summer days.

I used a tool that I haven't used for a while to make my card for this challenge. Maybe I should have put this card in Challenge #9 instead of #10. I used the crimping tool to add lines to my Kraft paper so the tractor looked like it was plowing the field. The tractor and corn is from a sticker set by Sandylion. I couldn't find my MS fringe scissors but I used my regular scissors to cut the grass on the card. The 2 sentiments are in the Down on the Farm set by Jillian Vance Design. They are cute little stamps with a pun. I inked the crimped paper with dark brown ink and the sentiment and block with mustard colored ink.

  1. I'm chuckling at the sentiment! I know there are certainly heroes who live in farm country who miss home and will love sending this card! Thanks for playing along.
