"Just the Two of Us"


Cute Card Thursday "Just the Two of Us", what a sweet theme this week. I had so many cute stamps that I was going through to use for this theme. Little animals, mice, pigs, cows, cats and so many cute little people. And then I remembered this stamp.... it is one of my stamps from my DT kit from Alota Rubberstamps, how funny and cute is it?


This is Old Friends and it is just too sweet, and perfect for the theme this week. I will be honest, I colored this first with my watercolors... didn't like it, then with my pencils.... ok I need to know those that use the new wood less pencils - what are you using for a flesh colors cuz I messed up two images trying to find the right color. So I just went back for what I was comfortable with, my Copics. I doodled the edges and double matted to match papers from the Basic Grey Euphoria papers. I stitched my small pieces down with a Spica glitter pen, and then found a large purple Prima flower for the corner. My sentiment is a pop out from Craftwork Cards and reads "Friends Forever" in Silver.


I hope Helene likes it at Alota Rubberstamps, and that they like it for the Cute Card Challenge.


Well today is a busy day... Hubby is off again today, and we are hoping to clean up a couple of donkey pens and move some around... getting ready to ween the first babies in a month or so, and to put the new Moms in with the rest of them. Irene is more that ready, she is actually a inch or so taller than Lina who is 3 months old! But I think we may hold off moving Gloria a little longer as she is just so tiny. But she does move fast so I am sure she will be fine, just me being over protective.


Have a great Friday and hope you have some crafting planned for the weekend!

Hugs and -
