A MFT kind of day...

Last night when I went to bed I dreamed of a little bunny reading around a mushroom. This is not unusual for me because I have on occasion some weird dreams, but they do help me with my creativity. So when morning came, and all my mommy chores were done and (most importantly) I had my first cup of coffee I sat down and made this card. I cut out my little mushroom, now it may not seem like a normal mushroom but it's what I pictured in my dream. Then I stamped Flopsey (Ancient Page archival ink) from MFT's "Reading Flopsey" and colored him with my copic markers and cut him out. I then decided he needed to be sitting in some soft grass. So I used the grass from MFT's "Hooga Booga" stamp set. Added a few layers of cardstock and then stamped my sentiment (MFT's "What's the Story") on my strip of cardstock. I'm thinking of adding some more "pages" and making a book, I think this would make a great cover for one.

I made this card using MFT's "Tea with Flopsey". I stamped my image in Ancient Page archival ink then colored the tree and Flopsey with my copic markers. I sponged on my clouds and then I stamped an extra tea kettle, and leaves to give it a little 3D effect. I decided to rough up my edges on the light yellow cardstock and distress them. I used SU's "Linen" to stamp the back of the Flopsey image so that when I folded the corner down you would see it instead of just plain white. I wrapped the ribbon around the light yellow cardstock and then through the white cardstock which I punched with my slot punch from SU. Tied the knot and ta da...there you have it.

Meanwhile Back at the Ranch...

I love that saying...and I love my "Doodle Factory Country" stamps. I did a lot of cutting and layering with this card. I really like how it turned out. It's so bright and has a lot of depth to it. I love how sassy these little cows me they are saying..."what now...can't you see I'm 'udderly' exhausted!!!" Hee hee I stamped my images on white cardstock with my Ancient Page archival ink and then colored them with my copic markers. I colored the grass in and then sponged it. I also sponged the sky with a light blue. I put the front cow, chicken, fence and mail box up on foam dots. This was a very fun card to make.
