Farm Yard Animals Theme no 427 new challenge for My Time To Craft blog

I'm living, teaching, and crafting in the heart of USA's farm country yet I don't really have much in my supply storage that is blatant farming theme. So while searching I came across this owl and thought about barn owls (and the baby owl that came down our fireplace chimney when I was high school age!!)

In my scraps, I had some of this barn siding patterned paper (from The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby) and instantly knew that had to be incorporated into this design team card for MTTC! Kraft browns and the double brown cording were also good selections to mix in:

#427 farm yard animals (Shell says dogs and cats can be included in this theme.)

Make sure to read the MTTC posting to get the details on how to participate and see the marvelous creative efforts of the other members of the design team squad!
