her Daddy had so much history as well. We called out town names, people in history, people in entertainment. And then it came like lightning, the only person it could be named for is Lola, the friend and breeder that we got both Cheyenne and Black Jack from. She has been a donkey life line for us "newbies". There for every phone question and support during panic attacks. And although she is always very excited for every baby we have - she was just dying for Cheyenne's baby. So here she is Lola... Dark face like Mom and Dad, long legs like Mom, coloring more like Mom's than Dad's but Daddy's head shape and at only a few hours old seems to have more of his bounce and fun, than her Mom's laid back personality. Hope you like her!
Ok, despite my total lack of more than a couple of hours of sleep the last THREE nights, one due to my crops, and two to Cheyenne. I did get a card made. And got a chance to use my new Spring Magnolia Stamps. The tree swing and swinging Tilda. I made this card for the Tilda & Co. Challenge Blog, the challenge this week was to create layers with your stamps. Or to make the Pop off the card. I had been dying to use the swing stamp, so this was perfect. I used light blue Bazzill to make the base and layered a piece of chocolate brown on that. I just got this FABULOUS piece of Heidi Grace shimmering flocked "Baby Clouds" paper. Oh I love this! It has a silver shimmer to it and the clouds are flocked and so soft and fun! A perfect background to Tilda on a swing! I stamped the swing once, and Tilda three times. Colored them with my Copic Markers. I then cut them out with my Fiskars fingertip knife (if you don't have one of these it is a must!). I used the long side strips of my pop dots to pop the tree limb and swing off the paper. I then popped my first Tilda, then just her dress and legs, then just her boots for a total of four layers. I highlighted her dress and boots with my white gel pen, and her wings with stickles. I ripped a scrap piece of green card stock, and stamped with a grass peg stamp to have some grounding for Tilda. The ribbon is from a Ribbon bobbin, I just love the saying. I doodled the edges of the brown card stock to finish it off. I think I am going to try this again and see about adding even more back ground items. I hope they like it for the challenge, I am happy with it.
Well I am going to try and get a few things done this morning, without falling asleep first. So better get moving! Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
