My first Lily!

I'm a bit confused, I took this pic with my cell, turned it over before uploading and it turned back over, the other way!

This is my first bloom so far, I sure hope this comes back next year, I do not have good luck with this type of Lily!

Meet Zeus!

 Clint traded a neighbor, our baby geese for this little Pygmy

 He was bottle fed, and house broken.

 He wants nothing to do with me... nothing! Tommy the kitty on the other hand.. he followed him in the house!


Joker couldn't believe he was in the house! I let him off the leash and they ran from one end to the other a few times.

Joker got up in Clint's lap, I thought for sure Zeus was going to follow!
He even came over and sniffed my leg. That's the closest he has gotten to me!

Well that's as close as I could get before Momma flew away!



Look! One hatched today! Oh, boy is it ever ugly! I can't believe how different they look naked!

Eagle and National Anthem

I printed our National Anthem inside, it's a squash fold.

I am going to Archiver's tomorrow to look for a nicer paper for the inside. Maybe a parchment.

I am going to give it to the Daughters of the Union Veterans of the Civil War ladies next week. I am hoping to make many to be sold for their fundraiser.


Stamps: The digi is from Doodle Pantry
Paper: Night of Navy and just some scraps of tan.
Ink: Koh-i-nor Pencils
Accessories: SU Corner Punch and some Gold Brads.

Clearly Inspired Challenge #28

http://www.clearlyistamp.typepad.com/
has a challenge going for a Critter card.. well Critters are right up my alley!
I had some trouble coloring that rooster... man is he small! LOL

The stamp set is from SU Farm Life
I used the Cricut Cartridge Storybook to cut the card and mats
SU Ink.. Close To Cocoa, Really Rust and Chocolate Chip
I colored it mostly with SU Pastels and a bit with Koh-i-nor Pencils

Clint got a real good laugh out this one... I was on the phone while I was stamping, I stamped the animals upside down (as you can see I had to trim the top edge)
so I flipped it over and did it over.. upside down again!
So I cut a new piece... well 4 new pieces later I got it!

I've wasted card stock before, but not so much of the same thing!

Not a good picture, but it's raining and so gloomy there is just no good light to be found.

Thank you Lori for the challenge and thanks everyone for looking!

My Robins are back!!

The Robin's made their nest in my flower pots last year. I had to move them just so I could use a pot!

Now this year I put all but one pot upside down, so I would not have to move any one so what do they do?
They put theier nest on the other slef in my garden! At least I don't need anything from that side. But I got a picture!

The Robins were here when i got home last night and did my usual yard/critter check. I knew there were eggs somewhere!

I have babies!



Tony and Dawn have hatched out 2 baby geese so far!
And as you can see Orlando is not into having their pictures taken! LOL
Clint took the pics with his cell phone and text it to me, I told him he had to get closer.
You'll never guess what his response was! LOL

Poor Joe!

I have no idea where that railing came from, but it's been out back in the scrap pile for a few years. So I took it!
Joe helped me bring it up to my yard, but we needed to move 2 of my boulders for it to go where I wanted it to be.
Most of my rocks are HUGE! Clint and Andy brought them to me using a bobcat and they stay right where they got dropped!
No clue what that little flower is.. can someone tell me?

Close To My Heart Workshop

Cool cards made at a workshop at Judy's house.

I tried to remember the names of the stamp set and the paper, but that was yesterday! LOL


 We all know I am terrified of butterflies, but this is flat, on a card and non intimidating! LOL
Still not about to buy any stamp of them things though!














Not sure what to do with this one, but t's the size of a dollar bill, or a money order! LOL














This started out as like 4" x 4" but we cut the square card base after 3 layers were attached, using a Nestie Circle

Suzy's Monthlly Challenge

Suzy sent some very pretty flower images and embellishments to use this month!
You can't tell by the picture, but the inside has a layer of the lighter green and a matching Pink flower.
She sent out enough stuff that I've I've made 2 more.. just haven't taken pics.
Thank you Suzy for the great images and embellishments!

This is a 6x6 card.. I know extra postage.. YUCK! LOL
But I couldn't make up my mind which flower to use... so I used all 4 of this set!

Some projects


My BIL Passed away in April and my sister Teresa asked for a few Thank you cards
 I used MDS to create these, I touched them up with buttons, Dew Drops, Top Note Die and some Smooch.. which I smeared tossing them into the box.. darn it!





This set of 6 is for a SCS Sketch.. but since my computer and theirs don't seem to be speaking ( a techy issue) I can not even remember the sketch number.
I get a weekly coupon from Archiver's for buy 3 and get 3 cardstocks.. so I got 3 colors for these cards.
All those layers make it a bit heavy, extra postage YAY
But I did get one more stamp used... getting closer to my Reesolution goal!
 One stamp set at a time! 







This cute little bunny is Raye's stamp. I had to stamp one for me to color. I didn't make 1 single Easter Card this year... not a one!
I did however, stamp this, color it and take a pic with my cell and share it with everone on Easter Morning!









This adorable bear and Locket necklace came from my daughter and Son in MO. They got a birthstone for all 3 kids and me for inside.. and he is so soft! He's an early Mother's Day gift..... I don't' think she meant for it to get here so quick!













I received this huge package of goodies from Australia! My Big Secret Sister is such a spoiler!  2 Chocolate Bears, Ribbons, Card Stocks, Buttons and a very pretty card! Thanks Sis! Happy Easter to you too!














This card I made for my Little DSS.. I created it using Elizabeth in MDS, the layout is a CASE from SCS
I colored it using Spica Pens and Smooshes
