Man when a "real" cold front hits it hits! Last night about 6:30 the wind starting blowing... by 8:30 we were outside repairing the roof on a barn! And it blew all night, and still was going this morning. But before I get to some donkey photos I have a card.
Friday Sketchers always has great sketches to work with. This week Mumur from France gave us a real challenge! But as scary as it looked, I loved it! I pulled out one of my K&Company pads an used all of the papers from the collection. (saves matching LOL) And then I went to work putting all the pieces together. I inked the edges of all of them. For my image I was so excited to use one of the new Sarah Kay images. This is one that was released along time ago.. and now it is coming out again, be ready - all the new Sarah Kays will be ready for purchase really soon! Many stores already have pre-purchase... better get them quick these will go fast! I colored with my Copics and white gel pen. I inked the edges and then doodled with a Copic Mulit-liner. To fit all the embellishments for the sketch I added felt flowers from Creative Collections, Buttons, Ribbon, Arrow Photo Turns from 7 gypsies, and the sentiment from Hanna Stamps. I love how it came out! I think all of the details of the sketch really do make this card work. Run over and check it out and see the fabulous inspiration from the DT.
Do you still want to see some Donkey photos?
I thought so...
You just knew I had to start with a photo of Freddie - ahem - Fernando. But his personality Freddie fits well. He is so funny, and he knows he is funny to. We were outside this morning at 7 am... working on his barn. We ran out of metal and couldn't finish it last week. And when Hubby got home from work it was already dark, and very windy. So we got up early and went to work getting the north wall on so they could get out of the wind. He is not afraid of anything! Right in the middle of everything we were doing, and you can't get mad at him, even when he was trying Hubby's patience and pushing and nibbling and knocking him over (mind you right into his newest "pile") Hubby couldn't get mad cuz when you look at him he bobs his head up and down puts his ears back and runs around in a circle. Then comes back for more. LOVE him!
Now I was a long way from Teddy and Bonnie so this is a bit grainy, but they are so funny. Bonnie is my Border Collie, my inside baby. Despite the fact that she is always a dirty mess ;(
She has her own yard. I have to keep her for her own safety from the Donkeys so she doesn't get hurt. Well Teddy, formally known as Ted E. Bear, loves to run the fence with her. They will do this forever and there are paths worn in the dirt on both sides of the fence. Ted is one of my standards BTW. If you are wondering what Bonnie has in her mouth it is her Frisbee (hope she didn't hear me type that word or I would have to take her out an throw it, we can never say it out loud or you must do in now! She so smart she might know when I type it too) I know it looks worn out, when new it is bright pink and green. That Frisbee is only a little over a week old. She really works them!
One more really odd photo. Hubby called me outside about 10pm last night to see the sky. This photo really doesn't show well, I haven't figured out this night time photo thing yet. But the sky was unbelievable! Spooky yet really Beautiful! I had a really hard time taking this too I was leaning on a pole to try and hold still the wind was just about to knock me over!
That is all for today - I want a few minutes to read a few blogs, then I have to get my stuff together. My buddies and I are going to a midnight crop, this is a new location for us to crop. Our LSS closed... I am sure we will have tons of fun, but it is about a 30-40 minute drive. It will be a late night! Hope you have some fun planned for this weekend!
