Give Thanks!

Hi, I am back to share a few cards in celebration of giving thanks!  The fantastic Sara Emily is hosting the Frilly and Funkie Challenge this time around.   She has challenged us with "Give Thanks".

Here is the challenge as described by Sara Emily:

"We have so much to be grateful for! The Frilly and Funkie team is thankful for our loyal readers and our newest visitors! For this challenge, simply create a vintage or shabby chic project that expresses gratitude."

I have been thinking about the fun farm animals from Stampers Anonymous and using them in a rustic farm based card.

 I searched in pinterest for some vintage images using the farm animals and it inspired me to create the following card:

And since I can never just create one image as I am playing around I ended up with a herd of cows and decided to create a rustic Christmas card as well:

Isn't  he adorable with his little ribbon bow tie?

I thought it would be funny to brand him with a north pole postage mark.

I masked and sponged the various stripes and blocked off areas of colors and stamps.  I do love layering my stamps and images. :)

Please come play along in the challenge.  The team will choose their top four picks with the winner being invited to join us as a Guest Designer here at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive Top 3 badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Ok, you win the prize for my favorite Christmas card so far. I love your bovine Christmas card so much! It made me smile, and that is always a good thing. Both cards are lovely, and the stamping, as always, is inspiring. I'm thankful for you, Suzz...and the inspiration you bring to my world. xo

  2. Suzz, your cards really made me smile this morning! I love the cows on both of your cards and you always use your stamps so brilliantly! The shadow around the cow and rooster on the Thank You card really make it pop! And the sweet bow and 'brand' on the Christmas cow are such clever touches! Well done, you! You never fail to inspire me! Thank you for doing such an amazing job with my challenge! Hugs!

  3. I just love your cards! The farmhouse theme seems huge right now and these cards fit right in. I love your two variations.

  4. These are so much fun Suzz!!! I would never have thought of using livestock this way and love how both cards look. SO effective - love them! xx

  5. I just love love love your take on this challenge, Suzz! What an amazing set of cards, each a pure delight. This is the best image and a little out of the box, which makes it such fun to see! Beautiful layering and details. Merry Christmas, Autumn
