Stamps: Flower- Hero arts, dragonfly die cut is from Memory box. All images colored with copics
This card is for two challenges, the window card challenge from A blog named Hero, and Cas-ual fridays sketch challenge. A pretty straight forward design, I love the dragonfly die cut, I was hoping to use glitter which I know I have somewhere! However it seemed to have went into hiding, surely I will find it when I am not looking for it. Isn’t that how it always goes.
We have new baby chicks 9 total: 4 buff orpingtons, 2 barred rocks, 2 americaunas and 1 rhode island red. The kids and I really wanted a duck, but DH is opposed to ducks so we just came home with the chicks. They are all doing well, even though it has turned quite chilly here again. We keep them up in the shed with heat lights and all, but I am always afraid they are still cold. With baby chicks though seems to cause the snakes to come around more. Saturday Pixie and I had just walked past the shed and turned back around to help DH with the trash for the dump when our two dogs started barking next to us. I looked down and saw what they were barking at. I screamed, grabbed Pixie and headed up toward the house. They found a copperhead heading for the shed, most likely smelling the baby chicks. He was a big snake, not to mention a bad one. DH got the shotgun and got rid of it, thankfully neither dog got bit, even though it did strike at them a few times. I am so grateful for my dogs, it could have easily gotten Pixie or I if they had not seen it. We usually find one copperhead a year, but this one was a little too close to me.
