Sweet Tricks

Happy Friday!

Wow, this week has flown by.  It's a bit breezy here but perfect to get all those little farm chores done.  My goats are browsing around the garden cleaning up the bits left from the crop.  The chickens are into their second week of laying and our Americana's gave us our first blue/green eggs yesterday.  Now I'm onto a search for some good homes for the kittens.  They'll be ready to go in a couple weeks.  I still can't believe my cat got pregnant while nursing the last batch.  We're definitely headed to the vet next! LOL

I have a sweet image from Stamping Bazaar today.  I did a guest spot over there awhile back and just fell in love with their images.  This is an older one but still fabulous, it's called "Marvin Trick or Treat".  The papers are from some old stock I've had for years (like 15+) ha ha.  A couple challenges wanted homemade flowers and I followed the sketch at The Sweet Stop and it called for them too.  The bottom layer is fabric, the next two are paper and the center is a flower gem.  They were all just pieces left over from other projects but once put together were just beautiful on this card.  The ribbon, of course, is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, who else!?!

Have a great day and don't forget to stop by tomorrow.  I have an extra special card for you to see!

I'm looking for a headless horseman digi image.  I've only seen a couple and their not quite what I'm lookin for.  I have an Equestrian friend and would like to make a card for her.  Let me know if you know of any.  Thanks so much!
