Happy Tuesday everyone! Sorry it's been so long that I last posted. I have been so busy this last week with getting ready for the start of school and some other things. But things should slow down a bit now, that school officially started.

We have a new challenge for you over at Digital Tuesday. This week it was my turn to choose a theme and it is

"On the farm".

Simply create a card or other project and include something farm related to it, this can be farm animals, tractors, farmers, farm scene, etc. And don't forget to use something digital.

Here is what I made.

I used an image from our sponsor Whimsy Stamps. They generously gave the team a few of their digis to play with. I already had this piggy in my whimsy collection from a challenge that I won a long time ago. I just love the look on the pigs face. So cute!!

I colored the image using derwent coloursoft pencils, papers are from stash. Card stock is Stampin Up and Neenah.

I embellished with some buttons, ribbon and hemp twine, and did some distressing and stitching along the edge.
My sketch is from the sweet stop sketch challenge.

And here is the complete list of challenges I am combining:
I hope you'll play along this week, we have an amazing prize from Whimsy Stamps up for grabs.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your day!
