2 cards for the Mojo Monday sketch

This was an interesting sketch for me. So many pieces of paper. Mixing and matching of different patterns and techniques. I can see lots of possibilities for this one though . The first card has a Poppy from I brake for Stamps, the Stampin Back line. I embossed it in black on Vellum and colored in with Copics. Y17-YR68-R17-G14-YG67 and 100. Used 2 pieces of different techniques and a strip that was Cuttlebugged. The little butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. I just bought this one. LOVE IT! For the second card I used the Cuttlebug die set, From the Sea. It is fast becoming one of my favorites. Crimped the sea horse and sponged him with dark brown. It doesn't show up in the photo. Sprayed all 3 pieces with gold Glimmer Mist. Stamps are from See-D's.
Any day now we should have a new calf. Hoping for no problems this year. If you remember last years births were not successful. Still hanging on to the names I had picked out. Mom is Cowsandra. baby will be Cowleen or Cowlvin. Just hope I get to use the name this time. Also still waiting on the Sand Hill Crane babies. Should be anytime. The back pasture is loaded with wild baby pigs and Turkeys of all sizes. I love the one. He looks like the Thanksgiving turkey. All puffed up and tail spread out. I can just see him wearing a Pilgrims hat. He's great.
