An Agricultural themed card for a lady who has just bought a farm.

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? I hope you haven't been too affected by the weather which has been extreme to say the least. I should be helping at another Felting Workshop this morning but I think it might be cancelled.

A young couple we know have made the bold move to buy a farm in France. Their aim is to raise cattle, host holidays and run courses. The farm is called √Člevage Jolivet and they have a blog and a Youtube channel. I think they are very brave but it is something they have both wanted to do for a long time. Their wedding reception was held in a barn which we helped to decorate. So you won't be surprised at the card I made for our friend's birthday.

As soon as I saw this set of images at Beccy's Place called Farm Fresh Digital stamps  I just had to have them and I knew who to make a card for. The lady in question does have a red tractor at the farm. The banner was a digital image that I got free last year. I used Publisher to make a background and arrange the images. I do like make cards with digital images. Especially now I have found out how to set a transparent colour. With Precoloured images this works a treat. 

I hope she liked this card her birthday was last weekend. 

Stay safe in this cold weather. 

Happy crafting

Hugs Jackie
