A Freaky Tiki Saturday!


Ok, now this card has to make you smile! I loved this image as soon as I saw it at Rubbernecker Stamps. The sketch is from Friday's Sketchers Blog. Well basically... I had to move a few things around just a bit the wording "Have A Freaky Tiki Birthday" was just a little larger than the sketch had drawn in. So I had to do some rearranging to get it all on the card. I love the bright colors, I colored the image in with my Copic Markers first, then went back and highlighted with the Spica Glitter pens, and a white gel pen for th centers of the flowers and his teeth. I also high lighted the wording with the gold Spica Glitter Pen. Wish you could see all of that in the photo. It is so hard to capture with a photograph. The base of the card is dark brown Bazzill. The pattern papers are K&Company Amy Butler papers. I used ribbon up the sides and then the ric-rak for the border on the top and bottom. The image and the sentiment are matted in scrap dark purple card stock. Prima Flowers on the corner with a button and brads for their centers. I think it is pretty darn funny! I hope they like it at Friday Sketchers! And I must say a huge thank you, for being drawn as the winner of last weeks challenge!! Was exciting news and I have been wanting to order Gretchen... yee haw! Thanks!

Ok, I have had a few ask about the baby donkeys. They are doing great. Rosita is growing like a weed, and sticks close to Mom most of the time but likes to wander off with the other girls in that pen and pretend she is just as big as they are. She has learned quick to stay away from Dad, especially when he is chasing one of the girls....... oh and Rosita has learned she has a voice and has shown off a few really good heee haaawwws.
Angelina (Lina) and Lola are both in the other large pen. I would have loved to have them all together, but to breed with the best Jacks we had to pen the apart. So Lina and Lola are in the other pen and they are getting to know each other. I actually caught them yesterday running together and playing. It is pretty funny to watch, their Mom's stand off to the side and if you listen really close you can hear them talking about their children and how hard it is to raise young ones these days. The photos are from a few days ago, I am hoping to get some this weekend of them playing together. They are just too cute to watch. I think Lola is going to be a talker too, she is trying hard to get a Hee Haw out... just hasn't quite got it going yet.
The first photo is Angelina and her Mom, Macey. Second photo is Lola and her Mom, Cheyenne. Oh and Hubby =)

Well hope you have great plans for this Saturday! Me, I am hoping to catch up on a few projects and do laundry, some fun and some necessities =)
