Welcome back!

Stick with me guys, this might be a long post!

Wow, it has been a long time since I have been on here!  I took a much needed break during the busy craft fair and holiday season.  My family and I ended up exhibiting at six different craft fairs since the end of October!  Busy, busy!  Here are some pics of our endeavor:

We did fairly well considering the economy.  I believe that people were searching for one of a kind local items this year.  There has been a big push to buy local in our area, and that has really helped.

Ok, on to the DREAM VALLEY post!  We are back from winter break and raring to go! The challenge for the next two weeks is to show us your cards and/or projects for a boy/man.  

I have used a combo of different stamps on this project.  Edwin with Egg Basket was a Magnolia image that I stamped and colored so long ago!  The background is Stampin' Up Chicken Wire.  The barn and grain bags are from Stampin' Up called On The Farm.

Come on by to Dream Valley and play in our challenge!  We are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and one lucky winner can choose 5 digi stamps from their store!  Awesome!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Card Makin' Mamas - anything goes
Craftyhands Challenge - anything goes
Crafty Girls - anything goes
7 Kids College Fund - anything goes
The Crazy Challenge - boys/men
Totally Gorjuss - manly

Have a great week, it's feels wonderful to be back!
