Butterfly Basics card
Good Morning Ladies,
Today's card was made almost entirely with one Ink pad,
One of the new Stampin' Up! 'In' colours 'Fresh Fig'.
I used the ink pad combined with the Butterfly Basics stamp set to create the patterned paper on the bottom of the card, and the vellum layer on the butterfly, I die cut the butterfly with matching 'Fresh Fig' card stock and used it as a mat in the background too. The Glitter card behind the butterfly is a piece of 'Sweet Sugarplum' glitter card which I inked over with fresh fig ink. Even the seam binding ribbon is coloured with the 'Fresh Fig' ink pad, it all seems to work tone on tone.
I hope you like it ladies.
Well we had a fun filled day yesterday, looking after another orphaned lamb, called 'Pascal', he is a purebred 'Suffolk' lamb, jet black, he is huge, Matt had to assist his delivery by using rope around his feet to help the Ewe get him out, when you see the size of him it's understandable that she struggled, it's also the struggle that made her reject him, luckily he is super healthy , Matt has Colustrum formula to feed them straight after they are born to give them a boost. He was running around the garden quite happily today, while Paul was doing garden chores, it's so funny to see the puzzled looking the neighbours faces when they hear the "baaing"
Most of the day was spent making up bottles or washing /sterilising bottles ready to be made up, I had forgotten what that was like. While he was indoors he was wearing an adapted nappy, made from a disposable baby happy with a hole for the tail, I was reliably informed by Paul that is easier putting a nappy on a baby than a lamb!
I think today will be quiet by comparison!
I hope you all have a lovely day, sending hugs to those of you that need them, I am hoping those of you with poorly family members have had better news today.
Love and hugs
