MOTHER AND BABY


Hello Everyone...
Beautiful day, sun is shining, a gentle cool breeze, the birds are singing...and driving my dog to distraction...they want the bread on the lawn and he will not let them near it..he's so selfish..lol..and lord help them if they get near his bone..I think he leaves it there just to antagonize them..

Have a card to share today, usng a beautiful image of a mother deer and her baby...and have no idea where it came from...



Coloured with Faber Castell pencils...which took forever, and used a Stampin up stamp.."Branch Stamp" around the edge for a softer woodlands effect.



My background card is off the backs of pads, lovely and thick and distresses well...papers are Prima"Botanical Collection"...



The leaves are another Australia trip purchase..."Lorelai Outline Leaf" die...which I wasn't at first very impressed with, but it is growing on me now...

Going to enter into these challenges...

That's it...thanks so much for stopping by..enjoy your weekend...I'm off to McDonalds for tea with my G/daughter, she is 11 years old today, and really lookoing forward to it..have to go to work first to tuck "My Ladies" in for the night...then off to EAT!!..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Fabulous Chrissy it looks like it might have come from a Disney colouring page because it certainly looks like Bambi and Mum (sob)! Have a great McDonalds! Susan x
