MFT Punny Farm & Prayer Request

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE and Tuesday's ROSEY APPRICOT COLOR CHALLENGE. I just received this new set from MFT and had to get ink on it so why not use the challenges to do FYI ss (appricot appeal) craft spots do NOT show well on rose red cs, just for those who may want to try this at home. lol.
I colored my main image with Prismacolor Pencils and blended w/gamsol. I wanted the pants a little darker so I went over them very lightly w/ the SU marker. I used silver for the pales. I applied a very tiny bling in the center of the flower on the hat, see my blog for a closer view. Panel 2 is appricot appeal stamped in black w/Chicken Wire after stamping the chickens in black stazon and masking. I colored small areas of the chickens then applied liquid applique and white fun flock. I colored some feed using the AA marker. The ribbon is from a stack of scrapbooking supplies I got last year from ABC Distributing. I could not believe how well it matched. The card base is sage shadow stamped w/ shade shadow using Aida Cloth

My youngest daughter is expecting her 2nd and last child. She had a scary 1st delivery that ended up in a C-Secion 2 yrs ago and is calling it quits with this one. This one has been scary already. She has been really sick the entire time simular to what I was with her 24 yrs ago, (it was 24/7 for 9 1/2 months). I am taking her today for a Level II ultrasound to see if the docs can determine if or what risks this baby is at having Downs Syndrome. Her labs were elevated and this was one option next to Amniocentesis which she flat said NO to. Hates needles! So our prayer is for good news and/or strength but HIS love will carry us through.
