Little Farmer note handmade card

We live on a small farm.  This Sunday our blond Nigerian Dwarf Goat went into labor (while I was flying home from a Leadership Conference) and my son (14) and daughter (12) helped deliver three baby goats!  You may not have known that I grew up across the street from Mr. and Mrs. Silva who had a large farm and taught us so much!  See this card that reminded me of my brother as a little boy walking the farm with Mr. Silva.

I love this stamp set.  The fine line drawings, the heartland farm feel.. it's so pretty.  Create a card like this by:
~  Stamp the Very Vanilla card stock with the boy stamp in the Heartland stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
~  Die Cut the boy and a larger frame in the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Framelits.
~  Color in the scene with the Blends alcohol markers.
~ Stamp the Crumb Cake card stock with the Soft Suede ink (for the Barn) and Chocolate Chip ink (for the saying).
~  Layer and adhere with the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive.

Here are our newest kids.. the four legged kind!  Goat birth and babies are referred to as the Kidding Season.  Our Valentina (blond goat) gave birth to two does and one buck.  We expect a second kidding in three weeks or so from our brown Mocha.
Colorful yet warm and even masculine, I love this handmade card.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
