Sarah Kay Sneak Peak!!! and yes it is Donkey Day!

Oh my I have just been busting at the seams to share the new Sarah Kay images! I have been good and not showed them to anyone.... But now I have the ok to share!!!

This is my first card with one of the new images, this is the card I talked about last Sunday, you might recognize the Sarah Kay Challenge Blog sketch. This is called "Puppy Love", isn't it just adorable! Heck I love all of the new images! If you want a sneak peak of all of them visit them HERE at the Stampavie DT Blog... they are showing them off with a slide show!

Quickly let me run some of the details of the card so we can move on to the Saturday Business -

I colored her with Copics, and then doodled the edges with light grey Copic Multiliner. I used a cream colored card stock for the base and then the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border for the opening edge. Placing a country blue behind it to show it off. I matted the K&Company pattern paper with Country Blue and Rose Pink Card stock and did the same for the image. Two ribbons are stacked to make for band across the middle, and a Little Davis Designs Key hole is used for some fun. A Prima flower with a vintage button on the bottom corner with a 7gypsies key sewed to them, I thought the key thing matched well with the image.

It isn't too late to join in on this weeks Sarah Kay challenge, it is a great sketch! New challenge will begin tomorrow morning.

And remember to see all of the new images check them out on the Stampavie DT Blog! I am sure you will begin to see lots of sneaks in the next few weeks! And you may recognize a few of the images as those long gone wanted images! YEA!!!! And until these are available look for the new Sarah Kay Christmas collection, they are available now!

Ok, here are some photos from this morning. Sorry they aren't great as the sun wasn't up yet.
First is three of the girls... look how cute they are coming up the path to greet us, I love how Gloria always trots with her ears back.
Then I found Valentine, getting a drink of fresh water. Hubby washes all of the buckets each morning, and then fills them with clean water. Spoils them, but I wouldn't want yucky water either.

Next pen was Patti... Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. ;0)

Lola was really wanting some attention. PLEASE come pet me! I stopped photographing and did just that of course -
And then there is the Gloria, she is always interested in everything around her, nosey... wants to make sure she isn't missing out on something better. But she is adorable! Look how much she has "sun bleached" she looks red, but no she is black under there.

Hope you enjoyed - I have two classes I am teaching this morning so I need to go and get my stuff together. Have a GREAT Saturday and take time to get inky!
HUGS and-
