Oh yeaaaaaaaaa, I hear ewe say, those kiwis have got something like 46 million sheep! (Used to be 72 million ... the rest left to live in Australia! ROFLOL!!!!!) About 13 sheep per person, apparently - I kid ewe not!!!! So I HAD to make a sheep. And having made one, I HAD to make another - ewe know what it's like. Well then, of course, it was decision time on how to get them on a card. My grass punch came in very handy (thank ewe Martha Stewart) and so my card was born. Check it out:
The SAB set 'So Happy For You' (I think there's a spelling mistake in there!) was perfect and I added a touch of contrabaaaaa-nd organza ribbon. The bow and button gave me a lot of grief, I have to say! It was by now around 11.30 pm and I was very tired and needing some sleep, but it just would NOT sit right. Normally I would decide to leave it until I was rested and fresh in the morning, but it was the last touch on my card and I just knew it would drive me crazy and stop me sleeping, so I HAD to get it sorted! So I undid the button (sewn on) and the bow (small, fiddly knot) and started again and thaaaaaank goodness, second time it worked like a chaaaaaaarm.
So, I hope ewe like my touch of whimsy ... and may ewe have some whimsy in your day today!
PS: Here's looking at ewe kid!
