No... the B does not stand for Barn!

Hey everybody!  I hope this post finds you all doing well and having a good day-- no snow here in MN where I am at but brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr it sure was chilly today!  I decided that I just simply had to join in a couple more of the challenges I came acros-- Love the "Get In Shape" Challege over at  it provided me with yet another excuse to pull out my Create-A-Critter cartridge-- hmmmm definitely gonna have to hide that from myself!  And I aslso decided to play with the lovely ladies at who are hosting the Wacky Wednesday Challenge--it was a farm theme!  So I think my card fits in quite well.  I also just came across the wonderful and  talented K Andrew and decided to add my card to her challenge as well! 

The barn was a little tricky to put together without the use of a Gypsy for welding-- perhaps if my husband is reading this super close today he will see my *hint*...okay not so much a hint as a blantant request for a Gypsy:)  I will be sending this card of to one of my friends who considers herself a "farm girl"  I think I'm about as close to the opposite as one can get!  But I do know she will love this card...okay I hope she loves it.  The "B" on the barn is the initial for her last name...not signifying that B stands for barn :) 
Cricut Cartridge: Create-A-Critter cow cut at 1.5 in and barn cut at 3.5 inches

I grew up on a farm uo in the northeast and I think you did a great job creating this barn. I hope your hubby catches your hint and picks up the Gypsy for you is it an awesome creative tool to add to your stash!
