Lost In Space

Hi guys and my poor little neglected blog!  Seems like my mojo has took a Summer vacation and hasn't came home yet!  There's just endless work to do on the farm plus I do have a REAL job that pays the bills.  Hopefully with Autumn around the corner I can slow down and enjoy days snuggled indoors scrapping and crafting. 

I have 2 cards to share with you tonite using adorable digital clipart from One Pink Lemon.  First up is a "hoot" of a card. I can't get enough owls!  Who would think they'd be so cute on paper. 


Eek, I just love this little owl.  My patterned papers are My Little Shoe Box, ribbon is PTI, and bling is Creative Charms.  Owl and sentiment are One Pink Lemon.  I'm enterning this little card in the following challenges:
Up next is another card using goodies from One Pink Lemon.  This time I used the Home Sweet Home digital clipart set


For this little card I used PTI Cardstock.  Patterned Paper is My Little Shoebox.  Twine and seam binding.  Button is Crate Paper and bling is Creative Charms.  My house, sentiment, and flower border are One Pink Lemon

And I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
I'm happy to report that my duck Fredda still has 1 baby duck alive.  That may not sound like happy news since she started out with 3, but believe me we're happy!  She's a wonderful mother.  I've got all kinds of new chicks running around.  Here's a picture of the barnyard:


This is my little barn.  It's where I keep my chickens and turkeys.  I adore my little barn - this is the most peaceful place on the planet and I could sit there for hours and watch my chickens interact with eachother.  That's me surrounded by chicks and turkeys!  They were preparing for a midday snack of corn. 

My neighbor gave me a Silkie rooster today.  We're thinking all of the Silkies I hatched are females so we needed a rooster.  My new rooster has a history of picking fights and being a bully, so we named him Ivan the Terrible.  Hopefully he will prove his name wrong and fit in perfectly!  And hopefully we'll start having baby Silkies!

I've been a follower of yours for a long time--love your cards. These two are adorable. Love the bright colors and the sweet owl. As a former chicken owner, I totally understand your *love*. Our silkies were the best brood hens and we hatched tons of chicks. Good luck with Ivan!
