A Barn Card Party

Our barn card party was so much fun. #barnparty #luvinstampin #stampinup #crafts #christmascards Wendy Cranford luvinstampin.com

Have you ever seen such a beautiful barn?

I love this barn.  This barn belongs to my friend, Wendy.  Yes, she has a fabulous name.

About a month and a half ago Wendy text me and said “I would love to host a card party in my barn.  Maybe a Christmas theme.  What do you think?”

Of course, I agreed.  I thought it would be so much fun to have a party in the barn.

The day came and we got all set up. Before everyone arrived Wendy showed me around and updated me on all her new animals and building projects on her ranch.

I also got to meet this fella.  His name is Rocky.  He let out several crows for us while I was there.  It was lovely.  (that’s not sarcasm, I really do love to hear a rooster crow)

I’ve decided if I ever need a place to stay, I could totally move in to Wendy’s barn and be happy there.  Surrounded by all her fabulous animals, and the view is nothing short of one of God’s miracles.

On to the projects.  Wendy requested we keep with a farm feel for the cards, and Christmas focused.  That was super easy to do because there are so many awesome holiday stamp sets and goodies in the Holiday catalog.

We created 2 of the same Christmas tags and 2 of the same Christmas cards.
