Saturdays Child

Saturdays Child or should that be Penny Pigtails, I love this digi stamp by the talented Mo Manning, it just reminds me of my childhood so much, my Dad had an allotment garden away from our house garden where he would escape to, he used to grow all of our vegetables and also kept hens, Joe in the neighbouring allotment kept pigs, goats, geese and ducks and I would often pop round to help feeding, I have to say though I was terrified of the goats because they did exactly as the one in the image, often chewing my clothes and the occasional head butt too.

Attention to detail...

Ok so now I am minus 1 pair of jeans, I cut a strip from them to add as a ribbon, tied a knot then frayed the edges.
