CCEE1432 - At the Fair

Welcome to another CCEE Stampers Challenge.  Amber Hillman is the challenge hostess for August. The first week in August is the County Fair where Amber lives so with CCEE1432 she has challenged us to make a card having some object or an animal that you would find at the fair. And for extra points, have some green on the card as that is the color for 4-H which is always a big part of any county fair. No bonus points for me!

I spent many a day and night at the Brazoria County Fair which is held every October viewing all the entries. So many wonderful memories!

And I'm going to throw this one in for good measure. It was created for one of the Dare to Get Dirty challenges over at SCS. Still no green, Amber! So sorry.
