TGIF - with Unity

Friends with Flair Friday...

Yes, I have been a busy girl!

We have started harvest here on the farm. 
I end up making two meals a day for 6 men, myself, and the kids EVERY DAY...
and that isn't what makes me busy.
I then HAUL the meals out to the farm for everyone to eat at the field.

Here is a picture of a corn field we cut into:




It is time consuming.

I get to plan the meals,
shop for the meals, 
make the meals, 
haul the meals,
go home and clean up the meals...
AND, I do that twice a day!

Besides being busy with those duties, I also have normal duties with the house and kids!
I hate homework!

Anyway, here is a card I made recently:


I love the colors. 

I used stamps from Unity Stamp Co.:

The background was made with putting ink on my block, spritzing it with water, and stamping to the white card stock. I love how the colors mixed. I then took one of the ink colors and stamped the Unity stamp for a little more layering...

Such a pretty card!
I hear you! I was never so happy as when I graduated from the food person to a tractor driver!! Beans are out as of yesterday, just did a bit of corn last night and this morning. Yields look good here.

I don't think I'd make a very good farm wife, but you are doing marvelously! Keep it up. Harvest is over soon! I love your card! I think I'm going to try that ink technique.
