If The Shoe Fits

Hi guys!  Time for a new challenge from If The Shoe Fits...Scrap It.  This week we're thinking "roses".  This month we're celebrating June's birth flower - the rose.  So make a project and use roses, rose colors, rose papers, the possibilities are endless.  I also entered this little card in the following challenges:

Stampavie and More #145 - Butterflies
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Pile on those flowers.
Color Throwdown #147 -


And here is my card:


I used Papertrey Ink Stamps, Prima Flowers, My Mind's Eye Patterned Paper.  I used my Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch and lace from Crate Paper.  Visit The Shoe to see the Design Teams take on our rosie challenge and play along! 

Now who wants to see a new picture of my Silkies???  They are growing up, love these little guys. 


Aren't they adorable?  And they stay so very clean.  They love to stay in our "community center" of the day and come out in the barnyard of the evening when the shades over. 

This week has been a happy one.  My turkey Shanana hatched 2 baby turkeys, so everyone's tickled about that.  I got Shanana last Autumn.  She obviously had it rough and we think she lived most of her life confined to a cage.  She has to be the ugliest turkey I've ever seen, but she can't help that.  Now she's a Momma. 


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right???  She's so proud of her 2 baby turkeys and I couldn't be more pleased.  She's an excellent mother and I'm so happy we've given her the life she deserves and to never be in a cage again.   Will keep you updated on her wee ones.
