Just a Happy Little Sheep! :)

Coffee of the Day - Spiced Hazelnut

Hold on to your seats - I am actually done with my Mo's Challenge card EARLY!!!!!! I know, you are wobblin' in your chairs, not sure whether the earth is still rotating, the sun is still coming up in the east, the Yankees are still gonna win the Series..... you get my drift..... :)

I actually made 2 cards yesterday that were back to my happy little style and I was in hoggie heaven! or maybe I should say SHEEP! I have always loved this image from Mo's Digital Pencil. Just something about the primitive take on it, but also the expressions of those carefree sheep! Somedays I long for that meadow on a hill far away. you with me there? So I grabbed my new Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers, my new to me apron border punch, some stickles, baby primas, that fabby gold Mike's ribbon from the other day, and went to town! The sheep are actually covered in this way cool clear glitter glue I found. It gives them some extra dimension and a tad of sparkle without making them too glittery shiny. The flowers are covered in crystal effects and the bees in candlelight shimmerz. Needed a non-traditional card fold for both the challenge and my Secret Sister card, so combined them with this gate fold. I had never done one before and was surprised at how easy they are to make. Man, I love trying new techniques and folds! Wrinkled up the edges and made sure to not glue them down all the way to add to the prim feel.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Jennifer
