More kids and a card!

Wow what a week.. my emotions are on a roller coaster ride this week! Up and Down with the Stress. But all is good. Yesterday we had Libbie fixed - the best for her I know that, but still was hard, she is such a good Momma and has beautiful babies. But best for her. So it is all good now. We have had more goats babies too! Surprise huh? LOL Paintbrush gave us quite a scare and she and her babies have been on my watch list the last  couple of days to make sure they are all healthy. So far everyone is doing ok.

They are a good looking family here aren't they?
Again... HUGE size difference in two of the babies. REALLY strange. Bluto is HUGE and Olive Oyl is tiny.

But how about a card? Yes I have actually crafted a bit - a tiny little bit.

I made another 5x7 card - still odd feeling, but getting a little more use to it. LOL
Sarah Kay for this card "Sofia Wishes" - isn't she pretty?
 I went with a little different color combo this time. Drew from the pattern paper from Websters Pages. The purple and black with cream really does work well together huh? And I love double sided pattern papers, so easy to just flip and use both sides! No thinking. I sewed strips on the top and bottom, then backed the oval image - Some pretty cream and purple mulberry flowers, with Martha Stewart punched leaves and branches. Three small pearls for the corner. The band is two punches of a Papertrey Ink die.  My sentiment "Hello Friend" is also from Papertrey Ink.

Close Up of Sofia -
Colored with my Promarkers - and cut with an oval Nestie. 

Did a quick surf for some challenges this week - First I have to shout out WOO HOO! I won last weeks 7Kids College Fund Challenge! Really great pick me up! Thank You Girls! 

This week I found two challenges that my card fit well.. and I took notes of other challenge I hope I get time to play this week :0) 

This card I would like to join in at 

LOL great challenges this week... easy to fit in huh? 
Ok, out to check on babies goats. :0) 
HUGS and -
