Continuing with my theme this month of a different challenge every day, today I chose to do an Inspiration Challenge.  I'm not much into folk art, but I went on-line and found a couple of prints to use as the inspiration for my cards.  The first one is a print by Karen O'Lone-Hahn.

 

Here is my card, using the two cows from today's set as well as one of the images from another MFP, aHC set called Tree Greetings.  I sponged in the clouds using a die-cut as a template.


The first time I saw today's set, I immediately thought of a print that is in one of the examining rooms at my doctor's office.  I couldn't find it on-line anywhere, but I found this one by artist Keith Millison, which is similar.


Here is my card:



Thanks for stopping by my blog today.    Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has created using today's set.  Here's the Design Team:
