A Farm Fresh Thank You!

Hi Top Dog Dies Fans. Have you been enjoying the new August Release?  I have for sure, some super fun new dies.   Like this super fun windmill...  This is the brand new Top Dog Dies Windmill Die.


I made this card for my Mama.  She watched my daughter for a few days last week.  With a new job, I've been super overwhelmed and exhausted at the end of the day, so I am super thankful!  Besides the windmill, I also used the Top Dog Dies Banners #1 Die Set.  For the backdrop I spritzed some bright orange fireworks spray.  Then I mixed some embossing paste with some yellow Gelatos and applied it with this sun burst die from Memory Box.  Finally, I stamped the chickens from the Greenacres Stamp set by Paper Smooches and colored it. My mama grew up on a farm and so I know this will bring back fond memories for her. 

Sidebar- The Greenacres set is super special to me because I grew up in Greenacres, WA (now Spokane Valley).  Though I never watched the show Greenacres on TV, I know the theme song well- "Greenacres is the place to be!"  LOL!  Love that!  I didn't grow up on a farm like my mom, but worked picking neighbors veggies a few summers.  :)

Meanwhile, some of the other girls have made some other super fun creations with this windmill...an ice cream cone, flowers- so cool!  What type of scene would you make with this windmill die or how would you re-purpose it?

Entering this into:

OK, have a wonderful day- Happy Hump Day!

"...Farm livin' is the life for me..." I LOVE Green Acres (yes, I'm an oldie); the theme song will be running through my head all day, and given the wonderful memories it stirs - of the show and of time spent on my grandparents' farm - it's welcome to stay! Your card: delightful! Fabulous windmill and the gelato+embossing paste stenciled background is gorgeous! WOW! Hope the job settles down and you can get into a less exhausted rhythm. Great to have your mom to help out; she'll love this card!!
Hugs~c
