Whimsy Inspirations - Purr-fect Pumpkin!

Howdy -

Today I had some fun coloring up a little kitty and a pumpkin -

This is Whimsy Stamps -  Purr-fect Pumpkin by StampArt Designs

Sweet cat - I colored with my copics (colors below) and then found some papers from Graphic 45. The sentiment is a bonus!! Yep with the Purr-fect Pumpkin image comes with 4 Sentiments to match!! I added some Viva Decor dots for embellishments  - kept it simple as the kitty is just Purr-fect! ;0)

Inside more of the same papers -

Copic colors used -

We had a tiny little front come through here earlier in the week... cooled things down a little for a few days... WAS WONDERFUL!! So I am into the fall colors and images! ok so it warmed back up here... but one front gives the hope for the next one coming! Fall is just around the corner!! Then Winter and I will be whining that it is too cold. LOL 

Have a wonderful day!

Animal Crackers - Attack of the Donkeys!

Howdy -

This week I got some cute photos while Hubby was unloading supplies for the barn he is building for the barn... you see cement sacks must really look like feed sacks to the girls -

They were very disappointed to find out it wasn't food and it wasn't for them. But a few head and rear end scratches and they were happy and back out grazing.

Snapped this cute one of Juliet...

She just loves showing off to the mini's how much taller she is and what she can do that they can't... she thought she was really special to rest her head on the side of the truck and listen to "Dad" talk to her.

Leticia was really determined that she was going to see what was going on and put her ears back and was making her way into the group of girls.

Patti is my slow and steady girl - hang back and see what is going on... don't stress yourself at all... And I love those expressive eyes. 

Totally in love with her!

Snapped a photo of the Heritage chickens having a meal - 

 Love all the color!! And you can really see how much larger Leon is than all the other girls. Problem is that he knows he is hot stuff... LOL

Well rain predicted for this weekend and we are hoping for a bit - Other than that lots of around the house chores... what is on your list to do this weekend hope something better than chores! LOL

Have a great one -

Love this new image from StampArt Designs by Katheryn  - I used papers by Graphic 45 - and Coredinations card stock - I cut out with Nestie Circle and then the scalloped Nestie

There are nice sentiments with the image. I cut out the word Autumn and then used a WhimsyDie from the Birthday Sentiment Die Set - "Celebrate"

High Hopes Stamps Challenge - Blue Brown and Cream

Howdy -
Today the High Hopes Challenge is a color challenge - Use Blue Brown and Cream. Love this color combo... and a really unusual one to make a Christmas card with one of the new Release images... but I like how it turned out!

This is Little Drummer - isn't he just the cutest?  Great for a family with a first Christmas for a new little one don't you think?
I colored with my copics (colors below) and then used Coredinations card stock - Brown with blue and sanded the edges. The sentiment is also High Hopes Paraum pum pum pum.  My papers are old My Minds Eye - a little brown satin ribbon, lace and adhesive pearls.   I sewed all my papers together.

Here is the inside -

Animal Crackers - Sleepy Afternoon


Lazy Afternoon here yesterday -

Lacey sure was sleepy... girl just couldn't stop yawning. Not the most lady like yawn there... LOL I think I yawned after seeing her...

Then I turned and found that Darlene was really out.. she was sound asleep! We need to be very quiet as at her age she needs her sleep.

 Oops I woke her up... time for some rolling and a little dirt bath!

 The girl loves her rolls in the dirt she was really going at it. LOL

Then Juliet starting approaching me. You have to be ready for her when she comes at you. She will knock you over with attention.

I have been telling you how dry it is here... and with Juliet dragging her feet you can really tell how much dirt she is kicking up! Girl pick up your feet!

Then my baby came to see me. I am just so in love with this guy. He has the absolute sweetest face...

What a heart-breaker! Just adore him! I know you have heard that before .. but really look at how sweet that face is!!! Won't be too long and he will be going in with the boys... that is when he looses his baby and will start getting tough.... I put it off as long as I can. :0)

Now this next one is a head breaker!!

Not just two were head butting, but three of them!  OH my it was SOOO loud. Just kills me when the boys are "playing" so hard. Really gives me a head ache! Those guys rare up and bang so hard! Ouch!

Then I had to get back inside to fold the load of laundry I got out of the dryer just before I went out....
Uh... hello?

 Warm laundry... just more than Gato could handle. Oh well I left her to enjoy it. Hey it was Hubby's laundry not mine so it was ok... LOL

Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned - Hubby and I are hanging around the house. Nice calm weekend is in the plan. Let's see if it works out that way.

Have a great one - HUGS and-
