5×7″ card, block prints with acrylic, ink embellishment on inside

Today my farmer friends are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their Blue Gate Farm, the place we buy a lot of eggs, produce, and yarn at the downtown farmers market. We wish we could be with all of those at the farm today to help celebrate this great milestone!

This is the front and the inside image from a greeting card to celebrate their anniversary. I already had the wavy lines block from an earlier project, but I cut the new block (blue gate with ten “sticks”) on Friday so I could give this to Jill and Sean on Saturday at the market. The flames on the blue gate candles on the inside of the card were done with ink.

Long live Blue Gate Farm! 🙂
