Beautiful Day

Welcome to the new challenge at High Hopes Rubber Stamps! This month we are featuring "My Favourite Things" It can be a favourite food, High Hopes stamp, colour.....anything that is your favourite - how fun is that!?!

My card today features a number of stamps from High Hopes that show some of my favourite things.  I LOVE being on the farm - for me there is nothing like it especially when the hay is being cut - one of my favourite smells even though I won't admit I'm allergic to it! I used to love sitting on a hay bale listening to my horse munch on his hay - he was in his own little heaven when he got his hay and I found the sound of him doing that very calming.






Although I chose to use a boy sitting on the hay bale it gets the idea of one of my favourite things across  
I started by colouring all of my stamps and then hand fussy cutting a couple of them. I used a die to cut some hills which I wanted to look like plowed fields in front of my farm background. Some wood paper was perfect for my little scene and some Nuvo crystal drops were the perfect finishing touch. For me, the sentiment was perfect - sitting on a hay bale at the farm is a beautiful day!
