I've had these sitting on my computer table for a while and thought I'd go ahead and post all of them at once. Pretty picture heavy but at least they'll be out of the way now. Be SURE and scroll down to that last photo - as I saved the best for last!
I was playing with stencils on these first couple of cards. I used vellum and very seldom do that. I will say these are much prettier in real life. Nothing spectacular to say the least though! The third card is nothing more than paper with the sentiment added and a couple of tiny butterflies. I had actually started making another card and then ran into this paper so had to stop what I was doing and throw together a very quick birthday card. Gotta love that paper business!
AND THEN......comes the last one! The BEST! Oh what FUN! They don't get into the yard very often but when they do, Rambo is Johnny on the Spot! They're very strong so Jim picks them up by their tail (hanging on for dear life) and puts them on the other side of the fence. Rambo lets us know in a hurry that we need to get these things out of his yard immediately!!
Yep, a true Texas 9-banded armadillo!!!!! Looks a little like some type of prehistoric animal for sure. They generally move very slow - but can run fast when needed. Their shell is leathery like armor - hence their name and some people actually have eaten these things. NO, not me for SURE! I'll usually try anything once.....but not that!
Thanks for stopping by..........
