Little Farmer

Thank you to those who congratulated me on my recent win over at Sketch Saturday.  And also just to tell you all that my Set 9 of Simply Sassy arrived this morning and I am so disappointed - the stamps are perfect but I have no UMount to stick them onto baa humbug!! Have some on order from elsewhere so will simply need to keep my patience til it arrives - either that or visit for rip-off local craft shop - think I will need to try and wait.........................................oh heck I hope my other parcel comes tomorrow!!

Here is the first of 2 cards for today using Little Farmer from the Home Grown Range at Sugar Nellie.

I coloured him with my PMs, distressed the edges and followed the current sketch for Sketch Saturday and come up with this.........he is so cute and reminds me of my son when he was about 4 or 5 when my Dad bought him a ride on tractor -m Gosh he loved it to bits.

Little Farmer stamp from Sugar Nellie;
PMs ~ Blush, Dusky Pink, Oatmeal, Vanilla, Buttercup, Sandstone, Forest Green, Apple, Meadow Green,Marsh Green,  Henna, Caramel, Cinnamon, Shale, Honeycomb, Cool Grey 1, 2, 3,4 & 5;
DPs are from my stash;
Straw and buttons from stash also.

I am entering this into the following challenges:~
