No I don't have a real secret, but the challenge this week at a Spoon Full of Sugar is to have a hidden/secret message on your card. How fun is this! Love how creative the DT's were, lots of neat ideas. Make sure to take a look!
For my card I had fun with one of Hanglar stamps... I so want more of these stamps!!!! I only have three... and that is thanks to my special friend Claudia! Thank Girlfriend for sharing with me or I wouldn't have any! I love this little bumblebee girl, I stepped outside of the box on her this time and colored her with lots of different things... my Copics, my Koh-I-Noor pencils, my gel pens and a bit of Sakura glaze pens, but you can't see that well from the photograph. I love my new pencils... I just still can't figure out a flesh color with the 24 choices, so I used my Copic markers for that! Until they have a bigger set with a decent color that may be my only choice.
I cut her out with my oval Nestibilities and a larger mat from dark brown. I then cut a second larger dark brown oval and a smaller pink oval... that is my secret message spot! I love the stamp sentiment, and I have rarely used it. It is from stampin up, I just don't know which set as I purchased it at a scrap sale.
How fabulous is the pattern paper? It again is from Daisy Bucket Designs, one of the 12x12 papers with four 6x6 designs, that makes them sized perfect for cards. I just cut a bit off the edges to fit the card base, and added the flowers in the bottom corner. Are those brown and white flowers with the designs the coolest. I don't know who makes them as they too were a gift from my buddy Claudia... wow double mention on this post she is a super special friend isn't she! I doodled around the oval and put it together with a large pink brad and done! I like this one... may be the pink and brown though...I am a sucker for those colors you know.
Now run over to A Spoon Full of Sugar and see the rest of the DT cards and make your own secret message card, it is so much fun!
Donkey Update: Well I thought I would let you all know that Patti and Irene have been moved from the Momma pen into the large pen with Raffie and his other girls. Raffie is my adorable smiling donkey that is a spot as well, so we are hoping for the future to have more spots. Years from now 3 to be exact... Irene will be bred with Raffie as well, he is not her daddy we purchase Patti bred from another breeder, we just got super lucky to have another spotted girl for our future. Things went well with the move... not to stressful. But later in the morning Irene got to close to someone... she got kicked in the face. She is ok, just a good sized scrape right down her nose. Poor baby, she is a tough cookie though and a big girl so I am sure she will be out there with all the rest soon kicking back. But for today she is sticking close to Mom and letting her do the protecting. This is all so new for the 16 day old!
Have a great Tuesday and get some crafting done!
