----------------------

Our DT inspiration projects for FQCB #29 are:

DT/owner Becca:

blog for Becca





[FQCB #29 element: stamped deer and more deer in washi tape scene]

I like the pairing of dark charcoal specialty paper with the stamped deer ! I was initially going to keep this as black, white, gray/silver but then I thought the bit of green geometric paper could be sort of like faux grass. I like how the white thread is circling the silver moon. The idea was to create a dark night scene with active deer. 


DT member NanaConnie:

[FQCB #29 elements: 3 deer ]

Delightful deer card, Nana Connie! The image was printed in grayscale and then she applied watercolor and/or polychrome pencils for color! Great ideas for techniques! It's an awesome autumn season scene!


DT member Dottie:

Dottie's blog


[FQCB #29 elements: deer focal die-cut and more in the paper ]

It's wonderful to have Dottie's creativity expressions again on FQCB!! We've missed her wonderful cards! Such a terrific interpretation for the theme! The kraft card base and dark brown yarn add more rustic woods reminders to her card!


DT member Diane: has stepped down due to the need of putting family first. We honor her decision and wish her and her family our very best. We will miss her outstanding creative cards!

FQCB #28 REMINDER midway posting with ongoing DT Call

 Howdy! Yippee! Hard to believe the #28 theme is already to its midway point!

Seems like FarmQuest Theme #28 just started!

Theme #28 is about Rain Gear.

Competition started May 14 and ends on May 27.

For my (FQCB owner) reminder inspiration project, I have 2 different pairs of boots, added some bluish gray clouds and some rain streaks to the home scene die-cut: 


[FQCB #28 elements: 2 different types of boots--hiking, waders/knee-high, ]

Wanted to have a travel theme and came up with the phrases to place on the clouds. I've got lots of friends and relatives that are doing more traveling this year so it will go to 1 of these lucky peeps! A bit jealous! However I did have a 3-3.5 hour road trip with my husband, mom, and our doggie last weekend to see my nephew (mom's youngest grandson) graduate from high school.


Now it's your turn farm and country friends!! Hurry up! I'm waiting for your entries! :)

Deadline is 12:30am CT/Chicago on May 27, 2023.

blog for Diane


[FQCB #28 elements: umbrella, rain hat, raincoat, rain boots]

When you wear bright sunny colors, it's easy to smile! I love how Diane has split the sentence into 2 parts to make 2 clouds! Brilliant design! Wow!


DT/owner Becca:

blog for Becca


[FQCB #28 element: umbrella]

I like the pairing of the cheery flowers with the sentiment die-cut! It did start with white lettering and colored pencils came to the rescue. "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy, when skies are gray..."


DT member NanaConnie:

blog for Nana Connie


[FQCB #28 elements: rain boots]

It's clever of Nana Connie to cut the image into a giant puddle shape! And more curved lines like in the mice and raindrops gives it a polished cohesive appearance! Delightful!


DT member Dottie:

Dottie's blog

edited on May 22


[FQCB #28 elements: umbrella and boots]

also has a cloud with rain, gray cloud print paper and a related sentiment
