Farmyard animals!

I whipped up a Birthday card the other night for my niece who is turning one next week.  I can't believe how fast time has gone!  Last time we saw her she was just a few months old.  I hope it makes it in time... it seems the mail from Greece to Australia or NZ takes between 8 and 10 days whether or not you send it express.  I decided that since she can recognise animals and the sounds they make I should make a farmyard animal card.  My husband chose the animals from my stamps and suggested that the pig should fly over the other two animals.  It's so nice when he takes an interest in my crafting (I only had to persuade him a little bit to put his two cents in)!

The colouring is done with copics and I shinied up the balloons with Glossy Accents (gotta love Glossy Accents).  The paper is Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon.  The stamps are from The Greeting Farm.

Your card is just brilliant, Arabella! I have those stamps - I gotta get them out again!

Have a lovely weekend honey!

You've done such an amazing job of all these cards! Definitely each in its own right a work of art. Worth framing. Have to call them "Forever" cards :)

This is fabulous! I love the way you've done the raised effect. Rubber stamps or digis?

The animals are from two different rubber stamp sets at The Greeting Farm BB... I can stamp you some when I go home if you like : )
