Whimsy Stamps - Baby Giraffe

Howdy -

This is one seriously cute image from Whimsy Stamps and Sylvia Zet - This is Baby Giraffe... cute right? 


Totally cute .. I colored with my Copics (colors below) and decided to make most of the focus on the image itself. So I printed my digital image a little larger and had fun coloring. Then I had a bit of doodle feeling going on and instead of sewing on this one I doodled around the edges! A couple of die cut words for sentiment and done! Simple and Simple adorable!

Copic colors used -


Have you surfed the Whimsy Stamps website recently? There is SO MUCH to find in Rubber, Clear, Digital and Dies! And lots of supplies too! Pop over HERE

Have a blessed day-

Animal Crackers - THEY ARE HERE!!

Howdy -

YEP.. Thelma decided it was time to release the babies! And let me tell you.. I always have that little nagging worry about first time Mommies, the delivery and accepting babies. But this was amazing! And despite the fact that these twins are boys... We are over the moon with these guys! Totally in Love!


Thelma started showing big signs that it was the big day Wednesday, so I was going out and checking on her every 30 minutes. Hubby got home about 4:30... we checked on her and nope nothing yet and she was eating. We went inside... at 4:55 went back out and there they were... she delivered, cleaned them up, they were both standing and enjoying their first feeding from Mom!! It was amazing!


And let me tell you... Thelma is a fabulous Momma! She is attentive, cleans on them, chatters with them when they get too far. I am so proud of her!


Now our biggest boy... he has Daddy, Alvin's coloring and his parents blue eyes... His tiny brother has darker coloring with black feet and stripe. Hubby named them. He thinks he is pretty funny. They are named Alvin Junior and Chipmunk...  so Junior and Chipmunk it is!


So they came into the world fast, and are doing fabulous. And they are extremely friendly - I love that! When Mommy is calm and not timid... it passes on to the babies. These two are totally chilled when holding them, and runs to you when you enter the pen, well unless it is time for a meal, then you have to wait til they are done.  Jumping and Bouncing all over the pen when they aren't eating or passed out.


 So totally adorable... and what new babies photo shoot would be complete with our Daddy Day One Photo...


Now we have started to watch Alice closer as her milk bag is really getting big... hopefully she won't make us wait as long as Thelma when her signs start really showing. LOL

Hope you have a wonderfully blessed day - here we are very blessed!

High Hopes Stamps - Lil Fireman

Howdy -

Today for High Hopes Stamps I pulled out a "Lil Fireman" to color for a cute card!  I am not sure which is cuter, the fireman... that sweet little puppy riding with him or that adorable little truck!


Total Cutie right? I colored with my copics (colors below) Now I found some papers from Carta Bella Cowboy Country collection. Put them all together with a zig zag stitch and straight stitch on my sewing machine. The sentiment "Let's Ride" seemed too fun and perfect for this little pair. It is from the Sentiment Set #4 collection. Great group of sentiments! Then three dots of Nuvo black. Love how fun this one turned out!

Copic colors used


Now I hope this one gave you a smile.... now lets think... I think I have someone that would like to get this in the mail... It's on its way he he he!

Have a wonderfully blessed day

Whimsy Stamps - Blossom

Howdy -

 And Happy Mothers Day! Today I am showing a card from Whimsy Stamps Digital from CC Designs! This is Blossom -


Cute right?? I colored her with Copics (colors below) and found a piece of paper from My Minds Eye. Love the red. A ribbon, a die cut Vine and dark red mulberry roses for embellishments. And then for those cute little words. They are all from the Whimsy Stamps set "You're Too Kind" I think all these little words are perfect for a "Mom" don't you? Hope my Mom likes it :0) -

Have a wonderful and blessed Mother's Day -

Animal Crackers - Yes.. he knows he is adorable!

Howdy -

 My baby boy Autie was playing hide and seek yesterday... Just being totally adorable!!


Yes... he knows he is totally cute! He got another hair cut this week. This time I went shorter... his fur just grows so fast! He likes it, thinks he is a super model. I say just a cutie pie!

We have had lots of rain this week, which makes lots of weeds and things grow really fast. Great for Hubby's new garden, but the weeds wow... poor Hubby can't get a chance to mow around here cuz once it starts to dry out... here comes more rain. A Good thing for fresh grass to eat, but a little mowing would be nice too.... the weather also does a number on hair styles!


Waylon's cute little curled bangs are just hanging in his eyes! I would get a hair clip for him, but that wouldn't be very manly. It will warm up and dry up and then he will get his spring back!  Now I know you are wondering what is that weed hanging from his horn....

Domino found more...


 LOL... was having a hard time getting them off... HELP ME MOM! as he was running towards me...

So I did just that and then we had some cuddles for some Thank you's ...


 Sweetie! Love this guy!

I know you are all yelling it out at me... Did Thelma have the babies yet??? Uh NOPE. She is driving me nuts! So we just won't talk about it at this time. Lets visit Alice and see if maybe she wants to deliver first maybe?


 That big blank stare.. "UH NO I don't want to go first!" LOL I think she is behind Thelma... but who knows now. Goats just making me crazy! I want some babies to play with girls!

So then I went to talk to these four..


I am SO praying that this year these girls get pregnant. We didn't have luck last year with Vicky, Lacey or Pepita and our stud Raffie.... but maybe it was just not long enough or weather... or moon and stars alignment, I have no clue. So this year I am really praying that there isn't any problems and one or all of these girls get pregnant. We put Patti in too this time as she is an easy breeder and hoping that maybe a calmer donkey helps out. Long way out for babies... Late Fall.. that seem a long time, but we know time flies -

Now I told you about all the rain this last week. I thought it was funny I found these girls sticking real close to the door way to the coop.


Just in case one of those heavy rains came out of nowhere... smart chickens!

Hope you all have a wonderfully blessed weekend - those in the US.. a very Happy Mother's Day -
And the very best to my Mommy... WE LOVE YOU!

High Hopes Stamps - Willow

Howdy -

I just love Spring don't you? And today for High Hopes Stamps I found a stamp that just gave me that warm good feeling of Spring. This is Willow -


So pretty in . her little pink dress, enjoying the butterfly on a spring flower. She is colored with Copic markers (colors below) then found papers from First Edition Floral Pavilion collection. One of the papers has a sheen to it, love it but it is hard to photo. I sewed the layers down with my sewing machine. Behind the image I layered a Spellbinders die, just a little addition of scrolls. A few dots of Viva Decor white for the dots and sparkle around the bottom of her dress. Then the sentiment from High Hopes Stamps "Live Life in full Bloom"  - Such a pretty image! There are so many to choose from at High Hopes stamps!

copic colors used


 Now you need to pop over to the High Hopes Stamps website and see all the fun images to color!

Have a blessed day -

Animal Crackers - A Watched Pot...

Howdy -

 Well Thelma was about to pop... milk bag looked just right, things counted up on the calendar correctly... and now we wait. Or as they say "A watched pot never boils..."


Now I will say she has been enjoying the special treats and extra attention and maybe she thinks if she has babies the attention will go all to them. But for now she holding off on delivering. I will say the babies have moved lower and look like they are lining up. But that may be me just looking for signs.

We do still have another baby to love on... 


We had some loud storms here the other night and it was a long night so everyone was taking naps during the afternoon. Abigail and Penelope was all curled up on the bench snoozing. I did get a little hello from Penelope just after I snapped, but then she went back to sleep. I never have understood how the goats sleep with their neck flipped back like that. And I suppose Abigail was holding that one piece of hay on her horn for later... LOL

Moxie thought that was funny I suppose... 


Little chuckle and her tongue sticking out... LOVE that face! Love that girl!!

And then there is my handsome bottle baby Sergio... not such a baby anymore. 


Isn't he just stunning... well without the dried mud. Handsome and Sweet!

With the good rain this week Hubby's garden has been growing like crazy! Doesn't look like much now but there are lots of baby veggies growing! Hubby says that we will have fresh squash and zucchini in a week or two!!


And then check this out!!


 We have lots of Peaches growing on the trees! Now if only they will continue to ripen and stay safe from the critters until they are ready to pick!! But check out all those yummy peaches! We are excited! We have a had a few over the past couple of years, but this looks like we may have a good bunch of them this year.

 Do you have fun family plans this weekend,  I think we will be around home most all the weekend, which is a good thing for me. Time with furry children is always nice.

Hope you have a wonderfully blessed weekend -
