Valentines from the farm

I've two cards to share with you today. The first is a valentines card and the second is a farm inspired card for my nephew who is a dairy farmer in Devon.
First up we have this super cute mouse from purple Onion Designs who is asking if you'll be his valentines. I would, would you?  I've kept the design pretty clean and simple with just some clear sequins and a charm for decoration.I love sequins but it takes me forever to decide where to the put the shiny little things, do you struggle too??
The mouse is coloured with zig clean color brush markers and the sentiment stamp is from Simon says Stamp.
Did you get anything for Valentines? I got a great card featuring brown bears.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges
Aud Sentiments Challenge - valentines or love theme
CASology - Romance
4crafty chics - charms

And here we are onto my second card of the day. As soon as was humanly possible I bought this set as it's perfect for my family. I come from a farming background, even owning my own rare bred pigs.
We even had a pet hen called Becky. She was bullied by the other hes so she lived in the yard and actually slept with one of the sheepdogs. She was so funny. At 12 noon it was dinnertime for the dogs and Becky thought she was a dog so she would queue up with the dogs and you'd have to feed her then rush down the yard with the dogs food before Becky caught up and tried to eat the dogs food.
 He he he.
I loved making this card. Colouring the cute animals was so much fun and I love how the card came together. I hope you do to.
 The stamp set is by My Favourite things and is called The Whole Herd.  The paper is also from MFT  and is called Tranquil Textures. The animals are coloured with prismacolours.
I decorated the card with my tonic nuvo drops.

  1. Hazel,

    The only thing I love more than your sweet little birthday card is reading your story about Becky. That's one funny story. And, your card is adorable... a perfect card for a farm-loving relative. I may just have to break down and buy that MFT stamp set after all.

    Thanks so much for playing along with us at Words 2 Craft By. We're so glad you did. :)
