Camping and cows

We'd a lovely Spring day today, sunshine and a bit of heat in the air.  It's looking good for the bank holiday weekend :)   It's great to see the garden starting to take shape again after such a long wet autumn & winter.

Anyway, this is a special request card for a little girl who was going camping for her birthday and was going to be toasting marshmallows!  Which is fine, if you have camping type stamps!  I luckily found this unloved DP in my stash which was perfect.  I used the fire from part of an old High Hopes stamp; my bunny is from Eat Cake Graphics and then I drew on a stick with a marshmallow!
This one was a challenge ... Penny Black Saturday this month want to see your favourite Penny Black stamp.  Which is a bit of an impossibility as I love all my PB stamps!  I paper pieced her wellies and added clear gloss to her horns.  Gummiapan flower die.  Not sure of make of embossing folder, it's another oldie.

  2. You managed to create a fabulous camping scene. Makes me want to go camping myself (but not in a tent! I don't "do" tents anymore. he he). I love your PB cow, too. The wellies are hysterical. My older sister and BIL raise cattle, and I tried hard to imagine their big cows in wellies. I don't think they'd be too cooperative in putting them on, much less wearing them! Love the gloss on the horns, too.
