High Hopes - Funny Farm

Oh dear, how did it get to be Tuesday evening already, back to the grindstone tomorrow :(
Ah well, I had a lovely couple of days off with lots of sunny warm weather, time out gallavanting and some left over for crating too!

This card uses Funny Farm from High Hopes - it's not one I've coloured before and I think I need a bit more practice!  My little piggy looks a bit sunburnt in real life, and my sheep has been dipped in Daz washing powder (for that bluey whiteness!)
Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Clear gloss and glitter added to the cow bell and to the chickens red bits.

We had a wee visitor to the garden today .... a Sparrowhawk on the hunt for a little birdie who was hiding in our Forest Flame!    The little bird did make a break for it, but I've no idea if he ended up being lunch or not!!

Another great card! I love how proud that chicken looks - all sort of: 'Ta Dah!'
We have a sparrow hawk which visits our garden. Sadly, I've seen it take a few of our resident birdies but I guess that's what nature is all about. Jo x

A lovely card - your colouring looks great! Our cat has been killing all our robins so we bought her a collar with a bell today - she hates it, but hopefully it will do the trick.

How cute is this! I love that image- I am a sucker for animals in general and have always liked the 'stacked' farm animals. The denim banner in the top corner is such a great touch. Thanks so much for sharing this sweet card with us at The Challenge!
