Cornish Heritage Farms
Cornish Heritage Farms is the Sew Many Cards Challenge sponsor this week.
Cornish Heritage Farms (CHF) is owned & run by Richard & Liz Pomeroy. Why the name? Richard & Liz are originally from Cornwall, England hence the Cornish Heritage & the 'Farms' is the 100 acre farm in north central Montana where they live & where all the stamps are manufactured. Richard & Liz believe in producing a high quality product so all the stamps are deeply etched, red rubber. CHF is a diverse stamp company in the fact that it consists of a variety of different licenses & styles, ranging from very detailed (Thomas Kinkade) to simple line art (Tom Fun Collection) therefore offering something for everyone.
The stamp I was given to use had 3 stamps in it. "Friends" and a dolphin and the sentiment I used on the card: "A smile is a curve that sets everything straight" I love that phrase. But, I am challenged in using traditional stamps - I'm used to digis. I did find these easier to work with than others I have tried. The quote from Phyllis Diller is a great one. I paired it with a digi of Halen giggling. When you laugh, you release stress and put things back into perspective. This card could be used for encouragement or friendship.
