AYLI Spring Critters

 Welcome peeps!! So I was Christmassy on Monday and now I am celebrating SPRING!! Everywhere is bursting with new life (except my tomato seeds which is a huge disappointment!!) and the ponies and dogs are moulting so my clothing is permanently covered in hair so it must be spring!!

It is the start of the new challenge at As You Like It and we would love you to share your favourite springtime critters and give your reason too.

It is lambs for me. There is nothing like watching them jumping around the fields ( I think gamboling is the correct term) and climbing on their Mums. There are several fields full of them on our track and there are always one or two really brave lambs that will watch as I am riding towards them, they stand their ground and then as we get closer...leg it back to their Mum for a quick sup at the milk bar. So sweet!!

Here are my lambs

and in close up...

Just a cream pom pom with a cardboard face (that I appear to have stuck on back to front as I can see the pencil line!!) and some beads threaded on pipe cleaners for legs.

This adorable image is from the Polkadoodles Honeypie collection. I coloured them with Promarkers to match the very old LOTV/Nitwits paper pad Perfect Pair. As you can see I was able to actually take these photographs outside in my favourite spot...ooh it has been a long winter!!

It would be lovely if you could find time to play along.

See you soon xx

Love your pom pom lamb Sarah and the bright cheery DP on your fab card.
I agree about the lambs running and jumping, lifts the heart. They might not be doing too much of that in the next day or so as the forecast is for icy winds, rain and poss snow. Quite a few have shed their plastic raincoats after the last few days of sunshine! :)

What a sweet card Sarah. Spring is definitely here. We go out walking most mornings and a couple of weeks back, there was nothing, then all of a sudden this week, so many trees and flowers are starting to blossom. I would just like a few more days like we had at the beginning of the week when it was lovely and warm....I actually got sunburned! :) x

Lynne in NI said...

I'm so glad spring is showing up for you, definitely my fav time of year! I love all your little lambs. That image is so sweet especially with you wonderful, soft coloring. Your little pom lamb is absolutely so cute.

Lena said...

I think you're right! I've heard that term before describing little lambs. I can see how you love them. Your card is beautiful, as is your little lamb. I would have never noticed that the face was back to front. Looks absolutely lovely to me just the way it is :-)

Diane said...
