Inspiration Friday - Down on the Farm

Welcome to the gateway to the weekend! We hope you've had an amazing week, and now it's time for some fun. Ready to get inspired? Let's do it!

This coming Sunday is the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and if you're anything like me, that makes you giddy. The days are getting longer and the promise of warmer weather ahead is invigorating.

When I think of spring, I think of growth, and what better place to witness growth and new life than down on the farm?

I took some time to search for farm fresh images on Flickr and Pinterest, and I was calmed by the slower pace of farm life. I grew up in the country, so these images feel a bit like home. Take a look at a few of my finds from my search:

Kind of makes you want to head to the farm and get your hands dirty, doesn't it? There's something so idyllic and perfect about it.

My Favorite Things happens to have a barnyard full of farm related products that end up making some seriously cute paper crafted projects. Let's take a look at a few adorable cards using farm fresh products from MFT.

Kay starts off our parade of country goodness with a traditional red barn created with our Barn Die-namics and some cutie pie critters from The Whole Herd stamp set.

Barbara portrays a perfect spring day to get those fields planted with with the Sunny Skies and Farm Fence Die-namics paired with a darling tractor from the Farm-tastic stamp set. You can see the fun inside of her card HERE.

Debbie colors up some cute with the Green Pastures and The Whole Herd stamp sets. The Rolling Hills Die-namics in the background completes her scene delightfully, and the kraft and twine give her design the right amount of rustic.

Yoonsun had a blast using the images from the Farm-tastic stamp set to create this whimsical design. It's all together way too much cute for words!

Melania's fresh design couldn't be more charming as the sun sheds light on two cute cows from The Whole Herd stamp set. So much fun!
