FYI, the deer card was inspired from Kathleen Novak and the birthday clams from Penny Ginnery. While you can't see it very well in the photo, I added microbeads with Crystal Effects to create a "sand" effect under the clams -- gave a really neat texture!
I'm not yet sharing the 5th card with you all in BlogLand yet, since I plan on modifying it for one of my Convention card swaps, so it'll stay a big SECRET (hahahaha) until the end of July. But I think it's pretty stinking cute, and so do the folks who've seen it already :)
CRITTER ALERT!! CRITTER ALERT!!
Now, if you are squeamish about seeing snakes, I advise you to look away NOW -- I'm including at the end of this post a photo of me up on the stage yesterday holding a boa constrictor (I'm in the black & white shirt). The field trip with Morgan's class to Reptilia was actually a lot of fun and I managed to put aside my fears to be a "cool mom" and volunteer to help hold her.
Morgan also got to go up on stage... check out the little clip of him when he got to hold one himself. His little clap at the end when he jumped off the stage cracked me up, kind of like saying "yeah --- alright!".
Apparantly I've been volunteered for yet another field trip tomorrow, so I'll be at the Ontario Science Centre on Thursday but back here for you on Friday!
