Anya is colored with my Copics and then high lighted with my white gel pen. I cut her out with my Fiskar's craft knife. Do you just love those flip flops or what?The base is a dark brown card stock, then a pink core'dinations card stock that I distressed the edges. That pattern paper is just wonderful! It is from Paper Trunk and is called Maybe Baby...just love that name! I used a Martha Stewarts wave punch on green card stock and then the same brown, and then cut the pattern just enough for the borders to slide under. I sewed everything together with pink thread. OH and I distressed the pattern paper as well. I added some buttons for some added fun...
Cuz "GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN!" another of my Cloud 9 epoxy stickers, on pink card stock then matted on a scrap of the dark brown.
Thank you again Jessica.. and everyone at Greeting Farm and Club Anya for my time with Club Anya.. it was short, seems like a blink of an eye, but I loved it! Thanks so much!
Now before I cry... would you like to meet Mirta? Who is Mirta you ask?
MIRTA IS VICKI'S BRAND NEW BABY GIRL!!!!!!!!
( Do you know how hard that was to hold to the end of the post LOL)
Her "full" registered name is "Ranchito de Crossback Mirtas Secret". The Ranchito de Crossback is our "ranch" name - all babies born here have that in their name. Mirta.. that is a name we have been saving for a special little girl. We have a taco house nearby, that Hubby gets his breakfast every morning on his way to work, the owner's name is Mirta... a very sweet funny lady and I have loved her name since hearing it. I am sure all of the locals are going to get a hoot out of it as soon as they hear what we named her. And then the Secret part... well you see Vicki is a Rolls Royce I guess you would say. She has a blue ribbon pedigree, both her father and her grandfather were show ring champions. And her father has the secret as part of their name. Her father is "It's a Secret" she is "Victoria's Secret" so now to follow our Spanish named babies... we have "Mirta's Secret"
She was born about 5:30 am and these photos she is still wet.. Vicki is doing so wonderfully. She birthed her all own her own. I was out with her 3 times during the night, the last time around 4:30 am came in and then when Hubby went our just before 6 am the baby was standing in the pen with Mom cleaning her all up. I am so proud of Vicki!! Well heck pretty darn proud of Raffi as well... another little girl! And we are not for sure about the coloring yet, they always look darker when wet... but WOW she seems like she has the dark spots like her Mom... I'll have lots more photos on Saturday.. pretty photos with her fuzzy clean and most important dry fur! Let me tell you... I will sleep good tonight!
HUGS from a very tired... but VERY Happy "Momma" and
