One reason my day was so busy is we got to make a trip to see another Donkey farm. I love going to Lola's place... she has way over a 100 miniature donkeys. It is so exciting to pull thru her gate and see all those donkeys roaming all around! It is just soooo much fun! We came home with two geldings to resale. And what wasn't planned was Patti. We came home with a sweet spot jenny that is due to have a baby this summer!!!! I will try and get some photographs this evening. She is beautiful.
I did one other thing I have needed to do for a while. I dug out my sewing machine. I purchased it over a year ago, basically to sew on scrapbook pages, I have wanted to use it a million times on cards, and just didn't want to take the time to pull it out. This was my practice card. I had this image, thanks to the ladies at the Tilda & Friends ATC Challenge blog, I colored her with my copics and high lighted with white gel pen and stickles all ready to go... So I got a few scrap pieces of the Amy Butler K&Company paper and did a few stitches with my machine. I need some practice! Had some issues with the corners, but over all was ok. I added Tilda and some prima flowers and the sentiment Thanks. Oh and the centers of the flowers are different. I found them on the clearance isle at Micheal's they are iron on beads for denim! They are really pretty in real life, a brilliant pearled color. I think if needs something else, I am dying to use my white gel pen and stitch the edges but I am trying to break myself of doing that on every card I make. Well better go out and check on my new donkeys and get the day going!
Hope you have a great Monday!
