Our granddaughter, Sydney, has been attending various farm camps at the Volkening Heritage Farm at the Spring Valley Nature center in Schaumburg for the past seven years. She is now old enough to volunteer at the farm and after a week of training, last week Friday was her first day as an official farm guide. It is an actual farm with horses, pigs, chickens, cows, etc. The kids do a variety of chores including mucking the stalls, slopping the pigs, collecting eggs and more. If you live in the Schaumburg area, I would highly suggest you check out this farm. And if you have children or grandchildren, check out the camp programs that are offered. It is a special place.
While working on today's card, it reminded me of our visit to the farm last week~~a little rustic. I used the Wood Textures DSP stack and the Wood Words stamp set. The images were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Have a great day and keep cool!
