Gingersnap Creations "Farm Fresh"

It's time for another "Chestnut Theme" challenge at Gingersnap Creations, and this month the theme is "Farm Fresh" to celebrate the richness of our agricultural heritage.  There are tons of different ways to interpret this challenge, so I hope you'll be able to play along.  There is a very special, near-and-dear-to-my-heart sponsor this month.... Rogue Redhead Designs!  Yep, one randomly drawn participant in this challenge will win a gift voucher from RRD.  Sweet, yes it is!

For my card, I pulled out some of my old Cornish Heritage Farms stamps.  And speaking of which.... did you know that all of CHF's images were sold?  And that they were bought by Tanya Kostynuk, of Stamper's Ink?  And... that they are coming back, in the form of digital images and rubber?  Oh yes they are!  Tanya is in the process of developing a bunch of digital images right now, and is scheduled to go live with them on November 19.  You can read all about it on the new CHF blog.  There will be some old favorites, as well as some new, never-before-seen images that never got released before CHF closed its doors.  So if you were a CHF fan.... "stay tuned" over the coming month. ;)

First of all, that is SO cute, and the image is adorable!

Second, Stamper's Ink is right up the street from our shop
(we're baseball cards), where I am sitting and commenting to you right now--how funny is that? I used to go to an altered book club there!

Oh this is so cute! I always love the images that look like the 'old days' (as my daughter would say- since they are 'my' days, I hate to call them old!) Yur cards always make me smile...
