Let the Sunshine In!

It was a beautiful day in Kentucky! Sunshine, blue sky's, warm temperatures...what more could a girl ask for? May is my favorite month because I know I have the entire Summer to look forward to. I'm definitely a warm weather person!
Got a few new creations to share tonite. First, a wall hanging that I just adore. It came as a kit from A Kiss On The Chic. I LOVE Laura's kits, they are so beautiful and I can't believe you get so much for so little! And she loves buying things from Etsy to add to her kits, so they are unique! I got this chalkboard kit and mixed in a few items from my Home kit also. I just love the happy bright colors. If you've never been to A Kiss On The Chic, check it out!

Next a card I made with my Home kit. It is for a challenge at Christian Paper Crafts Magazine. The Bible Verse stamp is Papertrey Ink. Sometimes less is more, so I kept this card simple. The challenge was to use a scripture and the colors black, tan, and aqua/teal blue.

Now, on to some fun stuff! Farm pictures! Mr. Kitty loves taking it easy at the barn. I'm never going to quit calling him "Ms." Kitty.

This is a picture of my oldest chicken Black Gold. Her feathers have kinda dulled with age and the other day I caught her napping and then she yawned. Who knew chickens yawned? Black Gold loves being a Mama more than anything. If any chickens hatch little ones, Black Gold hangs around to keep an eye on the chick. I think she's the "mid-wife" of chickens.

We have a new addition to the barnyard, little Rain Drop. It was hatched last Friday during all the rain, hence the name! We didn't even know the black chicken was sitting, she just appeared one day with a chick beside of her! She is so proud of her baby.


Enjoy!

I love little Raindrop! How sweet. What a cute project. You are a busy girl!

Love the wall hanging and the card is beautiful. I agree with you..sometimes less is better. Ms. Kitty is all grown up. Raindrop is so sweet. He needs brothers and sisters, but with #2 Mother, Black Gold helping out she will be fine.
