Shearing time and .......

Wendy is off to England for a family wedding - so obviously I had to make her a card. Being the glitter queen of Mexico, I included a small bottle of gold glitter, just in case
she got homesick.

Gotta have a 'cuppa' and definitely some music!

Last time I was in Australia I was on a sheep farm where the sheep were waiting to be sheared.  They all bunch together like they are hoping no one will notice them.  Don't pick me - pick her - pick him - but don't pick me.  I think the process is painless, however how would you like to come out bald after having all that beautiful wool.  Coming out of the shearing barns must be like coming out of a bad hair dresser! 

I tried to capture the feeling in a whimsical way.

That's it for today my Lady Lovlies.  Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and had some play time in the Studio.  Thanks for dropping in.  Come again soon.  I love your company.

There are many things in life that will catch your eye,
but only a few that will catch your heart. Pursue them

Thanks for leaving the crystal out but I would even drink out of the bottle ! Those sheep look positively stunning in those glorious colours. A beautiful and sentimental card for your friend made me homesick just looking at it.
