365 Cards - Day 100 - Manic Monday & Day 101 - Fun With Food: Veggies

I started my card for Day 100 last night and I thought I would finish it off this morning before my DD woke up but that did not happen because I went to let the chickens out for the day and noticed a car parked in our bottom paddock (I live on 18 acres), it had come off the road and went straight through the fence, so I spent half an hour looking for my horse in that paddock and finally found her - so I did not get to finish the card, but now I have and here it is:

Day 100 - Manic Monday
Pam said: To quote one of my favorite 80's bands, The Bangles, "It's just another manic Monday...
"But in this case, I don't mean something stressful - rather, I challenge you to use 5 bold colors on your card: RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, and BLUE - No pastels!

Day 101 - Fun With Food: Veggies

Today's challenge is Fun With Food: Veggies, Pam said it's as simple as it sounds, just create a card with a veggie (or two or three...) on it. And for extra fun, this challenge is being sponsored by Crop Stop.
The only Veggie paper I had was the Mushroom paper from DCWV - The Green Stack.
Cardstock - DCWV - WhiteCore

Large Mushroom - I actually scanned the paper into my computer and cropped and resized it and cut it out in the DCWV WhiteCore Cardstock.

Have a nice day and happy crafting.

Fi, both of your cards are fantastic and I love the mushroom.

Hope the driver of the car was okay.

Hey there Fi,
I'm so glad you got your horse back. Do you know who's car it is? Was there anyone still in it or was it a stolen car? Typical questions from someone who worked in the QLD Police Service for so long hehehehe. Love your cards for both days and glad I am back creating for 365 Cards again

Great cards, Fi, I love the sentiment on the mushroom card, very cute. I am glad no one got hurt in the fence accident, and I hope you find out who did it.
