Hope you had an AWESOME Weekend!!?? We sure did and we have our County Fair All this Week!! Beckett will be showing his Bottle Calf "Rosie" on Friday!! (Here he is with his other Calf "Bullseye"!!) When we are working wit them especially on the HOT Days of Summer they can get REALLY HOT so we ALWAYS take them and Hose them down afterwards!! They LOVE their Bath Time!! =) Then we Spray them with Fly Spray after we Comb their Hair!! Its sounds FUNNY, but doing this with them all Spring/Summer actually makes their Hair Grow and it becomes SO SOFT!! The day of the Show they will get Shampooed, Blown Out with a Blow Dryer and all Styled Up!! I LOVED Showing as a Kid (8-18yrs.) and I'm hoping the Boys will too!!?? Not only does it teach Responsibility, but it teaches so MANY other Lessons (too MANY to List here)!! 4-H is AMAZING!!
This will be his First Year Showing so I'm hoping it will be a GREAT Show!!?? He's SO EXCITED and with ALL of the other Events going on we're going to BUSY!! =)
I'm stopping in to share a card I've made for the Poppystamps Challenge #10 ~ A Day In the Park!! SQUEAL!! I LOVE this theme and there are SO MANY ways to create for this theme too!! I have ALWAYS LOVED the BEAUTIFUL Flowers that can be found in most Parks!! I could just Spend ALL DAY LOOKING and SMELLING them!! Along with ENJOYING ALL of the AMAZING Butterflies and the Flying Bees that can usually be found ENJOYIG the BEAUTIFUL Flowers too!! =) I decided to use the  DIES- Garden Bouquet Die that I WON during the Poppystamps Challenge #8!!
I created ALL of my own Water Colored Distress WaterColor Papers using my Distress Inks in ALL of the Colors that I needed!! Then I Die Cut ALL of my Images from my Custom WaterColor Papers!! I LOVE how these turned out!! I thought it would be FUN to Layer the Flowers so I Layered them Die Cutting the Corner Base Image from Green and then I Die Cut Two of each of the Flowers using the Separate Flower Dies!! I then thought there needed to be One more Layer so I used the  DIES- Johnny Jump Ups Dies!! I Die Cut One of each Color using the Smallest Flower!! Then I added some White Flower Sequins to the Centers to finish them off!! =) I knew I wanted to create a Shaker Card so I used the AWESOME Memory Box Cross Stitched Frames Borders and the Memory Box Cross Stitched Frames!! I added the Acetate and used some Crystal Clear Sequins and some Prima Crystal Beads!! For the Sentiment I used the  DIES- Fancy Thanks Die and Die Cut it from the same Distress Water Color Paper!! I Glued it to the Front of the Shaker and I LOVE the way it turned out!!
