My latest babies

I've been taking loads of photos of my babies (and mammies) lately, but I haven't put any on here for ages, so I decided to post some of my latest babies.
This is Pepper, he was born early last week, but the photo was taken on wednesday.
Here's Pepper and his mammy PegLeg. We gave her that name 'cause when she walks slowly she always kicks out her back leg in a funny way! Strange cow, but she is gorgeous.
This is our newest, Mighty Mouse with his mammy Doris (she's mean looking, but she is really quiet). Mighty Mouse was born on tuesday night and this photo was taken wednesday morning. He was born outside in the field, but we had terrible rain, so Martin put them both inside the shed to keep dry.

It's really muggy today

Well I'm just not used to this hot and muggy weather. We have no sun but the temperature is up to 25c and it's going to get hotter for the weekend eeekkkk! I've stayed in doors today to finish off a card that I started yesterday, my mind is all over the place as I received some very bad, sad news yesterday. As you can tell I've been playing again with my LOTV stamps, I just can't seem to put them down at the moment. I'm playing along with these challenges: Lili of the Valley - challenge 53 sketch Ooh-la-la-Creations - challenge 54 bright and cheerful A Spoon Full of Sugar - challenge 104 cute and girly Papertake Weekly - say it with flowers BasicGrey Challenges - week 20 punch it Paper: BasicGrey kioshi paper pad Stamp: Lili of the Valley fairies on tiptoe, SU! oval all Ink: Memento Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Cuttlebug, SU! oval punch, SU! scallop border punches, BasicGrey kioshi buttons and brads, prima flowers, frosted lace stickles and cotton twine.

I'm getting there ....

I'm slowly catching up making cards, maybe if I stayed off the computer for longer I might catch up quicker LOL! The other day I had a box of gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, I just love their flowers, so I decided to use them instead of looking at them 'cause they look very pretty in a large box container. I've used stickles to add abit of glitter to the flowers and around the image, but the photos don't pick that up.
Again, I've used my LOTV Rosie Posy stamp and my DCWV paper pad.
I've entered my card into the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew - challenge 50 sketch
Papertake Weekly - Shiny, Sparkly and Special
Paper: DCWV Citrus stack
Stamp: LOTV Rosie Posy
Ink: Memento
Accessories: Copics, nesties, Cuttlebug, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Martha Stewart leaf punch, Frosted lace stickles.
Thanks for looking.

I'm back

from a long weekend away which turned into nearly two and half weeks away. Oh the joys of Mother Nature. I didn't mind too much as I was staying with my parents in the UK, and I woke to the sound of seagulls and the smell of the sea. I was caught up with the 'no fly zone' with the ash cloud that paralized northern europe.
Then on 20th my nan passed away very peacefully. We knew she didn't have long, but none the less, it was still painful to watch her drift away. So rest in peace Nana, you're with Grampa now.
So all this means I'm very late with making birthday cards, and I'm slowly catching up. This is the first card I made with my new Lili of the Valley stamps.
I played along with these challenges:
Create 4 Fun - Week 18 sketch
Stamp with Fun - Challenge 57 friends
Lili of the Valley - Challenge 52 here comes summer
Cutie Sunday - Challenge 90 freestyle
Paper: DCWV Citrus stack
Stamp: LOTV Rosie Posy, SU! oval all
Ink: Memento
Accessories: Copics, square nestabilities, cuttlebug, SU! oval and scallop oval punches.
Thanks for looking.
