Featuring FQCB #50 baby farm animals theme DT projects for 14 April 2024

Welcome to Becca's Quest for Love and Country Creativity blog!

purpose: this posting features my latest contribution commitment to FarmQuest challenge blog that I started over 2 years ago! YES! FQCB is starting its third year in blogland!!! 

when: #50 starts April 14 and ends April 27, 2024

what: PROJECT #1: baby farm animal choice is puppy


1. background paper panel, leafy bottom border strip, 'faux' sun circle, sentiment tag/label, daffodil and little chipboard heart are all from Simple Stories card kits (at least 2 different ones); I'm down to odds and ends from 4 different ones bought about 2 years+ ago; I generally don't follow all the layout suggestions since I like to mix my stash items in to create more unique looks

2. black thread was looped around 4 times and tied behind to create a leash/collar for the puppy; instead of a dog tag, I used the little heart accent!!!

3. base is white cardstock with distressed edges (also from Simple Stories card kits)

4. foam and felt pieced puppy with googly eyes = from a Valentine's craft activity kit bought at DG on clearance from $3 marked down to 90 cents!!!! The kits makes several of 4 different animals (pup, hedgehog, dinosaur, and panda bear).

5. inked edges for papers and cardstocks


PROJECT #2: baby chick on "Just A Country Chick" card=

7. layered wood laser baby chick in half cracked shell = Crafter's Square

8. a mix of markers, silver metallic acrylic paint, gold gel highlighter to color baby chick

9. honey gold cardstock strip scrap = Neenah

10. black marker for sentiment
