Wide Loads...

I thought y'all might enjoy seeing two of my soon to be mommas. This is Cheyenne and Macey they are both due soon. Macey sooner, on the left, I think she is within weeks! They get so wide at the end. And to answer before you ask, they are pregnant between 11-12 1/2 months. Yep a year! (Insert loud groan here) It takes a while to get these cute little ones, but they are so worth the wait. The extra ears in the background is Black Jack the "daddy" to be. Oh and this photo is a little over a week old... they are even wider this morning!

I am just having so much fun with these stamps! These character stamps from Rubbernecker Stamps are a scream! This card is perfect for so many people... wonder who will get this one.

I colored this party animal in with my copic markers and layered her on Studio K's dots, I also used my cuttlebug and the Happy birthday Embossing folder lightly inked. The saying "Happy Birthday You Party Animal You" is pop dotted off the card. I then added buttons, I think I was going for a confetti effect. The color combination is odd - took it from the patterned paper. Don't know if it works or not but I am sure those green pants are polyester!

My second card today is for the My Favorite Things
Stamps weekly challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. I just love the My Favorite Things brand of stamps. Craig thinks they are hysterical because there there is never a head or face.

I wanted to go more country on this one, I made the lace border with my Fiskars Border Punch, and used Daisy D's Blue Gingham for the "ribbon" and to paper piece her shirt. I used my Copic Markers to color her and the chickens, my prisma pencils to lightly give a blue sky in the back ground and glaze pens to "feed" the chickens.
I probably need to explain the hot pink rubber boots. My MIL (mother-in-law) moved to our country property, we told her she needed boots to be out at the barn, she wasn't happy as they are ugly. For Christmas my Mom got her a hot pink pair and she just loves them. I think she would wear them "out" if we would let her.
Well off to start my day, got an email from a friend last night reminding me of her birthday on Sunday... need a special card for that! he he he
