Some Alpaca Photos

Hi, lovely sunny day so far so grabbed my camera for some alpaca photos.

First up is the lovely Pasha, he is so cuddly. Sired by our Supreme Champion, Cherwell Leys Tangaroa.
His Dam is first placed female Cherwell Leys PrimaVera, her Dam was first placed in the Dam's Progeny class.

Next is gorgeous Georgii, her dam is Princess, she is sired by Woody, who has some excellent cria to his name. Princess has Ruffo in her pedigree, Woody has Commisario and Peruvian Caesar in his pedigree.

Another wonderful Woody cria is Highland Rain. Her dam is Highland Shadow. Can you see the similarities between them both ? Highland Shadow has Highlander and Commisario in her pedigree.

This is a photo of Ikatere, sired by Cherwell Leys Tangaroa, dam is Camillia (PrimaVera's dam too)
He has the same fleece as Pasha, photo number 1, which is different to our Woody cria. Last year was the first of Tango's cria, all boys, hoping for some girls this year. Woody had his first cria 2012, all boys and last year he had mainly girls.

Finally today is Sunset's Hero, a rose grey/roan with his pedigree including the infamous Australian Sire, Blue Grass Waterloo Sunset. We are hoping that he has a very bright future.

That's all for today.

Waltzingmouse meets Sochi

Hi, Time for a colourful Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge, and some of my favourite colours.

This time I was inspired by the Sochi Winter Olympic Games, after watching the snowboard slopestyle and seeing the Russian Matryoshka watching over the action, and joining in sometimes. Just had to use the You're a Doll set of stamps and then create a patchwork background, had to use hexagon shapes though.
Hope that you like it, I even included the games motto, Hot, Cool, Yours !!

Thank you for visiting

Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge

Hi, another challenge from Waltzingmouse Fanatics using a sketch this time.

As soon as I saw this sketch it reminded me of shafts of light, so I decided to use one of the lantern stamps complete with its matching die cut.

The shafts of light were stamped with zig zag background as they looked like the lamp beams of light shining out. The background of my card was made using my new brayer, a new technique to me to produce the dark night sky. My sentiment was from the Light of the World sentiments stamps.
