I colored both the beach house, by Stamps Happen Inc., and Tilda with my Koh-I-Nor pencils and Mineral Spirits (except for Tilda's skin colors I used Copics there). I cut Tilda out with my Fiskar's Fingertip Craft Knife. I rounded the corners of the beach house image and then picked out an orange and blue card stock follow the sketch and rounded the corners of them as well. I inked the edges of all three with a dark brown ink. The ribbon is American crafts, love how it has all the shades in it. Tilda was pop dotted onto the front. I gel pen stitched the edges of the orange card stock and then used three baubles on the right corner. Now if only Tilda would invite me to visit her beach house... wouldn't that be a great peaceful place to vacation!
This photo is pretty funny. You see they hadn't quite finished their last bale, but we needed to get one in anyway, so we left it wrapped and explained to them that until they finish the first one... no new bale. Like good children they are all eating the old bale... yea right... I saw them grabbing off the side of the new one as well! Oh well they are too cute to get upset at them. =)
This is one of the other pens, and this is Victoria and Ellie Mae. Ellie Mae is one of Hubby's favorites... she has that loud high pitch scream that just cracks us up! Sadly she has had a problem getting pregnant. We are hoping this is her year and will get pregnant this season, as she is already 5 and hasn't had a baby yet. Victoria is our spot that lost her baby this last spring. We think she is already bred again.
One more photograph. I know Annie would just never forgive me if I went one more week with out a Gloria photograph. So this one is for you Annie! Gloria was finishing her bite of hay as she was trotting over to me, she is really cute and man you should hear her talk! She is going to be a chatter box, she hee's and haw's more than any little one we have had! And yes she is still tiny! Growing but she is gonna be a small jenny.
