Spring Fever!!!

Melissa Phillips is having a wonderful challenge on her blog and I just had to play along! Look at what the winner gets:

Isn't this little apron adorable? I LOVE it!
OK now for my card:

I used Colorbok and Melissa Frances paper, felt for my pocket, Melissa Frances rub-ons and lace, Michaels ribbon, and Stampin-Up ink. I found a little dress and apron template online to get my card shape. And I added a little flower to my pocket.
Today was beautiful in Kentucky! Sunshine and temps in the 60's...it was wonderful. Hubby and I worked in the garden for hours clearing everything to get ready for planting. I heard little frogs croaking for the first time this year! That means Spring is right around the corner. Of course I took some pictures of the little animals. The first is Smoky giving Ms. Kitty some kisses.

Here's one of my chickens soaking up the sun. I was also practicing with my Nikon and a new lense, love how it blurs the backgrounds of my pictures. Practice makes perfect I guess:)

And last but not least, the goats! I feel like I neglect the goats because I don't post as many pictures of them....so here's a cute one of Hannah a pygmey goat (miniature). She will be 1 year old this month. You can see her twin sister Montana in the background.

Enjoy!
