Take a look at the design team's inspiration projects:

Diane A=

[theme #23 requirements = wood crate]

What a charming farming gnome taking an apple break under the shade of his sunflower!!! From his denim, boots, checked paper, apples, crate, and sunflower...oh, also the dirt...Diane's packed lots of country touches to her card! Wonderful!

Dottie S= 

[Theme #23 requirement = galvanized/metal pot]

What a lovely farmhouse inspired color and pattern/print mix that Dottie's chosen! I love her selected sentiment, too! The metal pot container looks like it's from the sewing/craft space. Such a charming encouragement card!

NanaConnie =

[Theme #23 requirements= 1 wooden trough]

Look at this marvelous watercolored image! Food trough, muck, and a hungry pig in this image make us think of farm life. And it's paired with the perfect message! Thanks, NanaConnie, for a cute birthday card!

owner Becca S=

[theme #23 requirements= wood crates and tin silverware]

Whether farm to table or making a middle stop at a farmer's market stand, these combination of die-cuts are giving a rural country vibe. Perfect for a birthday or thinking of you card, which I haven't decided yet. 


Now it's time for our readers to go on their own stash and/or computer quests to find elements of tin or wood farm/country items like buckets, troughs, and crates.
