Crafty Secrets June Linky Party

Hello Dear Friends!
WOW can you believe it's JUNE already?  
And, being the 1st Monday in a new month means it's time once again for a new challenge (Linky Party) at Crafty Secrets.  The design team challenge theme this month is all about the MEN in our lives!  The image I used on today's card reminded me so much of my father that it really called to me.  I hope you enjoy today's share ...

Remember, there is NO theme for YOU to follow in order to join in our challenge ... simply create something using ANY products offered through Crafty Secrets.  AND, if you don't have any CS stash you can grab the freebies offered up this month and join in the fun.  Each month we offer something free so you can come share in the fun.  So pop on over to OUR BLOG and see what's offered today.

 Images used today are from the 'Down on the Farm' digital set and
background paper is from our 'Digital Blue Paisley Stripe Papers'.
Inside View
I apologize for not having some sort of tutorial to share today ... things have been a bit crazy in my personal life lately.  Not only did I run out of preparation time but also drew a blank mentally.  I'll hopefully do better next month.

A stunning masculine design Darlene. Just adore the farm theme and the roosters at the picket fence.

Very cute. Love the farm scene and those roosters hanging out by the fence.

Dar, the picket fence on this card is so fantastic! I love the woodgrain texture and the pop of white. And as usual, your coloring makes me want to sit down with you and have a private lesson! Such a great card! Thanks for another wonderful Linky Party Project! xo

Love love love your colouring Darlene. This is such a cute farm scene and I also love those roosters at the picket fence. You can almost hear them cock-a-doodle-doing.

Very cool card and it looks like my "neck of the woods" This would be a perfect card for my hubby don't you think?? Perfect mix of all the elements you have used, too!
