Morning everyone, time for another challenge at Allsorts and this week Lynn has selected the theme of 'Anything Goes with a Scenic option'. This weeks prizes are a lovely Indigo Blu stamp and three images from Ruth Hamilton Design.
Above a touch of Fairy magic using lots of Lavinia stamps, Oxides and Pan Pastels blended together on the background and of course some glitter to finish off.
A second scene of a totally different kind, this time out in the paddocks with the hens and newly hatched chicks......sadly we don't have any this year as one cockerel was too clever and chanced a night out in a tree and the prowling Fox, the other killed off along with several hens by a neighbouring farmers dog.....I won't even get into the ensuing story!!
Most of the images/dies on this one are from Two Red Robins Morning Sunshine collection and up in the tree Cecil or Sidney, you can choose which one it is. The Tractor is called Old Tom from Bumblebee Barn collection, the Reflections come in several colourways but for me it had to be an old red Massey, just like one that still trundles around here with a trailer for 'collecting'....or poo picking as it's aptly called in the horsey fraternity, there are lovely scoop and rake sets in all sorts of colours for the purpose, we have pink and purple!!
And before I go, baby Margo, eight months old yesterday, had her first sit on a horse at the weekends Hunter Trials. This one is Ben, not her own pony Penelope (yes GG went soft at Christmas) as yet, Ben is totally bombproof so the safest option for starters and with Anysia had a clear on Sunday. Judging by her face Margo is a chip of the old block and her excitement when she sees dogs or horses echoes my own.
Have a good weekend, here in the UK it's a long Bank Holiday weekend but the weather forecast doesn't seem to have taken account of that and temps of 12/13 deg promised.
