FQGS Challenge #2 AFCG Theme starts 7 March 2023

 Howdy! Yee-haw!! Welcome to the farm--

FarmQuest General Store Challenge Blog's

AFCG Theme #2 month of competition starting 1:00am CST/Chicago on March 7, 2023 and ending at same time on April 5, 2023.

AFCG is shortened for Anything Farm Country Goes

Think rural, country, farming, ranching, gardening, produce markets, orchards, farmhouse kitchen, Mason jars, denim, plaid, gingham, burlap, feed sacks, windmills, barns, barbed wire, picket fences, porch swings, dirt roads, hiking, fishing, camping, and hundreds...thousands of other topics!


Design Inspiration:

DT member NanaConnie=

[AFCG theme elements: dairy barn, bucket, kittens, twine]

NanaConnie's made another stunning AFCG inspiration card with this wonderful milk barn with kitten visitors image!

She printed the image in grayscale and then colored lightly with aqua marker! Her stash provided the scraps and twine to finish the card front! Awesome! NanaConnie told me that those kittens couldn't have a happier place! I agree! Too cute!


DT/owner Becca:

Campfire Daydreaming

[AFCG elements: campfire, log, sticks, buffalo plaid print]

For another card entered at another challenge blog recently I won 3 images from LeAnn's World 101! This campfire scene image was 1 of my selections! I added the dark ground horizon line to help ground/anchor the image and then added some bluish swirls and some gray squiggles for some night sky. I also added some yellow 'sparks' leaping off the fire's flames. Some different scraps to look like sticks were added behind the image focal.


Now, readers, time for you to do your stash quests and come back to use this Inlinkz tool address to enter your submissions:
