Bountiful Harvest



I got a slightly frantic message on Saturday evening from Beth Silaika. Beth, as you may know has been the hostess of the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoaststampers for a few years now and I've had the pleasure of filling in for her a few times with that challenge. She had apparently asked Debbie to do the challenge today, but poor Debbie is sick so she asked if I might be a last-minute fill in! Since I was having a really lazy day and needed some motivation to get busy stamping, I quickly said yes and got to work on a card!

Beth had already chosen Heather Prince, aka Princessheather to be featured today so I checked out her sweet gallery and found this card to CASE. I really liked the layout of the card, so I kept mine the same with just a few little changes. I turned to the new Bountiful Harvest stamp set from Our Craft Lounge that I had a sneak peek with the other day, just because I love it so much! I love the sketchiness of the illustrations, and the fact that the images are all so appropriate for Fall which is my favorite season for card-making and decorating!
I tucked the sentiment inside the card, along with a border made with some of my Cosmo Cricket paper and a scalloped scallop border made with a Die-Namics die from My Favorite Things!
Remember, there's still time (until 3:00 p.m. Eastern time today) to leave a comment on either of my OCL Sneak Peek posts this week and be eligible to win the Tweet Trees stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by!

YOWSA! This is sooo good too!!! I'm in love with that awesome image and you've made it so soft and pretty with the papers you've combined it with...a tricky thing to do for such a traditionally masculine image. WOW!!!!

That tractor looks just like it has been hard at work on the farm for decades! Super work, m'lady!

Love it! That tractor looks like it's smiling for some reason! Such a happy card! It also reminds me of the old tractor we had at our cabin! Great card, Tammy!
