Lawnscaping Challenge #37 (Use Dimension) and Simon Says Stamp (Tags/ATC's)

I recently acquired the cutest Lawn Fawn set called Critters on the Farm and this week's Lawnscaping Challenge gave me the perfect excuse to ink it up:





I incorporated a tag into my design as I'm also linking this up to the current Simon Says Stamp challenge to create a tag/ATC. 

Using the negative space from a circle die cut as a mask I stamped Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain in Ranger barn door distress ink on both the tag and base to simulate the side of a barn.  Sun is from Hero Arts Kiss From the Sun set.  The cute little piggy(looooove this little guy!), the sentiment and hay bales are from the Lawn Fawn Critters on the Farm set.
Other Materials Used:  Papertrey ink cloud die and white cs, MFT grass die, A Muse gingham pp, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist pp, Stampin' Up cs, ribbon and hole reinforcer, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder, googly eyes from stash, Nestie and Creative Impressions twine

And since "Hay There" probably qualifies as "barnspeak" for "Hello" I'm going to link this up to the Moxie Fab World Stamp It! Cards Week "Hello" Card Challenge  :)

Hope everyone has a great start to their week!  Temps are cooling down here in the Northeast so it looks like we'll finally be able to venture out of the air conditioning:)
