Get your cup of Coffee....

Yes get your cup of Coffee - cuz I got lots today!



First lets do a card and get that out of the way as it is Saturday and I do have Donkey photographs!



My card today was so much fun! I used this weeks Friday Sketchers Sketch love all the details of it. I have been dying to use one of my new Alota Rubber Stamps, this is Cupcake Girl and she can be found: HERE Now I can't tell you why I didn't use her yesterday for Cute Card Challenge, but I guess now I have two cards that qualify for this week! LOL! I colored her with my Copics and matted her with the same as the base color.








Now I just got a new DCWV stack called "Sweets" and it has some yummy papers! these are both from that stack. I hope you can see how cute the top pattern paper is with all the words and cupcakes! I matted and inked everything then found a very thin ribbon as per the sketch and ran down three times down the left side. I used two felt flowers and sugared brads for centers. The sentiment is from Rubber Stamps Tapestry. I know the details are quick today... but like I said I have lots today ;0)
Alright now to some Donkey photos! Now aren't
these some serious looks on their faces?





Well you see on we had some visitors the other day.......
Strangers! And they are not suppose to be on "their" property!!! Our neighbors sheep get out all of the time. But they usually don't get onto out property. Well this week somehow they made in thru our fence at some point. Yes next week we will be checking all the fences just to be safe. But Wow did it disrupt my babies day. Hours they spent just staring. They couldn't get to them as they were in their individual pens, but if they could have I am sure they would not have been on our land for long! Wish you could have heard all the snorting and grunts as they were not happy donkeys and they wanted these odd looking animals to go away!
Now the next Donkey news has just been killing me to keep quiet!!! You see Helene at Alota Rubber Stamps went out and found some images just to make me over the moon happy! You see she has DONKEY IMAGES!!!!!! When she emailed a couple weeks back and told me she had found them I was screaming with excitement, but then she even let me in on putting some of the sentiments together for these adorable babies!!!!! We emailed back and forth and finally got some great sayings. We could have probably done another whole sheet of rubber in sayings!
Now are these not the Cutest??? They are actually called "Sweet Little Donkeys 1" and Sweet Little Donkeys 2" (Just click on their names to get to them) I think these are going to sell really fast... so hurry on over and get yourself some donkeys!!!! I am just soooo excited I had to share even before I got mine to stamp out. But you do know you are going to be seeing some Donkey cards really soon!
Ok... today's post has just worn me out! I am going to go get me a coke and sit for awhile and catch up on some blog surfing! Hope you have a great Saturday!
HUGS and-

what fabulous news about the donkey stamps - I'm really looking forward to seeing your cards with them. And those pics are so funny with them all looking at the strangers over the fence! Now I have my new car I'm going to take my granson to the Tamar Valley Donkey sanctury in the next holidays, but they are full size ones so not so cute as yours! And of course, I should mention your cute card too, fabby colouring as always. hugs, annie x
