Sweet Little Lamb

This sweet little lamb is another Crissy Armstrong creation. I used this little cutie "Spring Lamb" for my DT card for Sundays with Crissy. It's available as a digital image from Whimsy Stamps. You still have time to join in our "Birthday" themed challenge for the month of February. You even get one extra day. Don'tcha just love leap year. LOL

I paper pieced this darling with NitWit digi papers (Tippy toes & Me-Wow) & distressed the pieces with Distress Ink. I then colored the grass & flowers with my Copic markers (R81, R83, R85, G21, G40, Y21, YR20, C5, C7, W3). After cutting out the image with my Lacey Circles Nestie die I carefully sponged the sky & grass with more Distress Ink. (I left the paper inside the Nestie before sponging the background & later wiped the die off with a baby wipe.)  The pink gingham DP is from Bev Rochester's free gingham papers found on her blog All the Things I Love.  Thanks a bunch, Bev!  The pretty green DP's are from my huge paper stash.

 The sentiment was computer generated using the font "Brisk". It was cut out with my Lattice Rectangle Nestie.  When I showed the card to my hubby he asked me who "Eve" was.  LOL  Thank God when I asked my daughter to read it to me she said "ewe".  LOL So I hope you can read that it's actually to "Ewe".......not "Eve".   (You know........a 'ewe' is a female sheep.)

I used my Stardust Stickles to bling it all up.  I cut a strip of pink netting which already had a ton of glitter on it from my LSS (local stamp store) (I had glitter  Buttons, ribbon & flowers are all from my stash.
