Animal Antics at the Ink Spot!

Welcome to a new week!  For me this is the first day of the week because my job allowed me the holiday off.  It was a much needed day to play catch up around the house.  I finally got the rest of the holiday decorations packed away and the floors swept and the groceries shopped for.  Phew!

To start off my week I was lucky to have Kelly challenge The Ink Spot design team to make a card with an animal on it.  Extra points if it is funny!  How did I do?

For this card I have used Ice Fishing Riley and Percy from the Riley and Company Stamp Line.  I have also put that together with a sentiment called I Swear It Will Be Funny from the Funny Bones Stamp Line.  The background was made from my paper scraps using a technique called Bargello that I found on Splitcoaststampers.  I really like how it comes out, and it is super easy to make.  

 Splurge on your time and make sure you head on over to the rest of the DT blogs, and check out their projects:
Frances          Heather       Steph       Joy
 Kelli             Monica          Sandye    
Also make sure you like us on Facebook to keep up with the new happenings!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Crafting From the Heart - anything goes
Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Card and Scrap - blue and white

Have a great week!

New Year, New Changes!

This is so exciting!  New, big things are coming to blogland!  Check it out:

Tanya, who is the owner of Riley and Company, recently closed her bricks and mortar stamp store, so that she could spend more time with her online companies which included
 Riley and Company (Riley; Funny Bones & Inspirations) and Cornish Heritage Farms

In the past Riley and Company and Cornish Heritage Farms have had two different Design Teams.  From the January 1st, 2016 the two Design Teams have been combined and this blog will be our new home!

Now, on to the card!  In honor of combining the design teams Heather has challenged us to combine the stamp lines.  Make a card or project that uses a Cornish Heritage Farm stamp along with a Riley and Company stamp.
