Here's a card I made for today's Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenges. My sister Kathy is hostess this week and she'd like to see us using animals on our projects. You'll have to hop on over to the SSCC blog to read the verse she chose and see the Design Team's fabby creations! =)
I'm giving you a li'l sneak peek at another new ART STENCIL coming out on June 14th at Layers of Color! This is called Delicious Dots. I sponged it with turquoise and brilliant blue classic inks. The birds and eggs are from LOC's Backyard Birds set, and the li'l chic is from Rise & Shine.
Speaking of birds, while I was out walking yesterday, I came across a killdeer who layed some eggs on our old dug up road. These are basically prairie birds and their eggs look like rocks.
I haven't seen many killdeer around here, until about a week ago when we noticed this mama. They are funny birds and their natural instinct is to pretend to have a broken wing to lure you away from their eggs. (You can see that the mama made a nest made of little rocks next to a big one for protection.) Then when you follow it away they squawk like they are so proud of themselves for tricking you, and then run back to sit on their eggs. We've seen them do this--pretty funny, but I just hope they survive the deer we have here. Lots of tracks near them.
