I Like Ewe

Decided to squeak one more card in for the current Lawnscaping Challenge ending tonight to:




Still playing with my new Lawn Fawn set Critters on the Farm:


IMG_0111_2


Wanted the sheep's body to have a little texture so I burnished some Glitter Ritz microfine glitter on a sheet of P K Glitz sticky paper before stamping the sheep with Ranger jet black archival ink.  Embossed the sheep's face and legs on black cs and paper pieced them to the glittered image.  Love the punny sentiment that's part of the Critters on the Farm set and thought it would pair nicely with the Hero Arts Friend Definition.  Word bubble was die cut using Cricut George & Basic Shapes cart. 
Other Materials Used:  Amy Tangerine Sketchbook pp, K & Co. heart gem, Papertrey ink white cs, Nesties, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder, Michael's black pearls



Since I used text in the design I'm also linking this up to the CAS-ual Fridays current challenge ending tomorrow to:

Our cool down in upstate NY was short-lived:(  After one glorious day of opening all the windows in the house and breathing "real" air back on went the air conditioning.  Taking a boat ride on one of the Finger Lakes tomorrow with my mom and some of the other residents of her assisted living facility - hoping for some cool lake breezes :)

Robin, this is the cutest little lamb ever! I love the glitter and the embossed black paper-piecing...fabulous!

I was lucky enough to see some of the beautiful Finger Lakes of NY on our drive home from Niagra Falls, Canada a week or so ago. Such a beautiful area! Enjoy your drive.

I know, we had our windows open for a day, but no more! Back to hot and humid. (Yuck!)
