Happy Harvest For Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge



Hello Everyone! Yesterday was my birthday! My sweet hubby took yesterday and today off  from work to spend my birthday with me!  It is the best birthday gift this girl could ask for! He also gave me some lamps for my photo tent, so hopefully the next time I take some pictures, they will come out much better! We are going to take our motor home to Doheny State Beach in Dana Point today. We can park right on the edge of the sand. It is always so nice and relaxing to be spend the day at the beach!


Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge, the theme is to Create A Country Scene. I hope that you will join in on this fun challenge! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of one of this week's wonderful prizes from The Cutting Cafe and The Ribbon Girl.


For this challenge, I used My Mind's Eye Abbey Road Round and Round Design Papers. Tilda with Carrots, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. Instead of having all carrots in Tilda's basket, I colored some of them to look like rutabagas and potatoes.  Tilda has picked the vegetables to make a nice stew for Edwin!


I made the barn using D.J. Inker's Ultimate Doodle Collection Digi Art CD. I printed the barn on red and white card stock. Then, I cut the white trim pieces out of the white and glued them onto the red. For the fence, I used Martha Stewart Border Fence Punch. The pumpkins are buttons that I found at JoAnns. The sunflowers are from My Moments that I bought from Paper Wishes. The orange roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The doily is from Wilton. The "Happy Harvest" was stamped using a Studio G Dollar Stamp from Michaels. The lace and the rooster weather vane are from my stash.


Thank you for stopping by my blog! I really do love reading the comments that you leave for me and appreciate each and every one of them!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Big Hugs,

Suzan

What an adorable country scene you created, Suzan!!! I love this. The typical red barn, and garden, Fall flowers and pumpkins, and lovely Tilda with her harvest! Now I just love the Rooster weather vane! Great idea to "change" some of the carrots in her basket! Happy Birthday to you my sweet friend!
