Love Ewe Dearly and Adios Amigos!

One last card before I unplug for awhile:


I'm linking this up to the Moxie Fab World: Movement Challenge.  When I sat down to put the card's elements together I really thought about their placement with respect to the movement/flow of the design:  fluffy cloud to fluffy sheep to sentiment.  Even if one's eye starts at the fluffy ewe it moves to the pink "ewe" to the pink heart and back up to the cloud.

The sentiment is a combination of one from the Paper Smooches set Pretty Phrases and Lawn Fawn set Critters on the Farm.  The ewe from the same Lawn Fawn set was embossed on white and black cs then paper pieced.  Cloud and hearts are from Hero Arts Right At Home set.  Sun is from Hero Arts Kiss From the Sun.
Other Materials Used:  Papertrey ink cs, Stampin' Up cs, Amy Tangerine Sketchbook pp, My Favorite Things Die-namics fresh cut grass die, Hero Arts Small Tag frame cut, Michael's black pearls., W R Memory Keepers corner rounder, Spellbinder Nestie, Hero Arts mid-tone pool ink, Ranger worn lipstick distress marker

I'm also linking this up to the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge: We're So Trendy (the colors I used are kinda neon).

Hopefully I'll get a chance to visit everyone's blogs one last time before my hubby and I take off for vacation :)  Don't know why I always feel like the house has to be clean before we go away - it's not like the cat really cares! And while I agonize over every item I place in the suitcase the hubster will probably play a round of golf in the morning and throw his stuff in the bag a few minutes before his brother comes to take us to the airport......*Sigh*

The card - and the trip - are to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary.  The thing about getting married a bit later in life is you can't necessarily wait until your 40th anniversary to go on an amazing trip.  So we're off to Spain to wash our tapas down with some sangria and to gawk in person over the work of legends like El Greco, Picasso and Gaudi that so far for us have just been small images on a screen or in a coffee table book:)

As always, thanks for your sweet and supportive comments and happy creating!!

There is such a dearness in all the cards you create! And, we, too got married late in life (yesterday was our 15th) - so I am really anxious for a chance to meet you! You are a total rock star and don't worry about packing - just wear that dear smile and you will be all set. Enjoy and can't wait to hear the details. Hugs!!

Robin this is so beautiful. I so love how you did a little scene once again. I love how you do that, something I wish I could put together. I love this little cutie. The design is wonderful and the papers, elements you used are perfect. Love this so much.

Sweet sweet card...just darling!

Robin I am so sorry I didn't read all the post here. :O( Now that I have read it I want to wish you and your sweetheart Happy Anniversary on your 14th. Sometimes I just look at pics if I don't have much time to read all of a post and sometimes that can be so unfair to the blogger. So I will need to make more time to read more carefully. Please forgive me but I trust that you both have a great time together, I am sure that your Cat will think that it is wonderful to have the place to it's self. Lol. Big Hugs.
