Wired Up on the Farm

Old MacDonald had a farm - and on this farm he had some.................


The Double Dog Dare Challenge that I do with some SCS friends was hosted this week by Anne (jdmommy) and her challenge was to make a card with some animal that Old MacDonald would have on his farm. So here are my sheep having a good time jumping over the bale of hay that is bound with black wire. I used the Cuttlebug folder Distressed Stripes on the punched photo corners. The bale of hay is cut out and layered on with foam dimensionals. Everything is colored with my Prismacolor markers. You can see the other animal challenge cards here.

The wire was used for todays Ways to Use it Challenge - Get Wired - to use some kind of wire on your card. Here is a close up of the wire - I curled the ends and attached it to the bale with glue.

This was a fun card to make today. It started out with a fence and a rooster but it wasn't working out! - sometimes creativity takes different turns KWIM???!!! Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Oh my gosh, this is cute! I HATE working with wire, it drives me crazy! I have some sitting right next to me and I still wouldn't use it. But this is so cute, you are so clever the way you think "outside the box"!!!
