A Little Lamb For Someone Special

Happy Wednesday to everyone!  The week seems like it just got started and here we are at hump day. Nice having those Mondays off, huh?

Our oldest son and his wife was home over the weekend.  They are expecting their first child, I just had to make a little something for the Mommy To Be.

I used Baja Breeze only because it went so well with the Barely Banana and Certainly Celery, nothing to do with a BOY color.  *smile*  This lamb was so easy to do.  I used the small scallop punch for the body and a Spellbinder Scallop die for his head.  The small oval supplied his head and the 1/2” circle (cut in half) for the ears.  Boho Blossom Punch topped his head off for a little added wool.  *smile*  His little legs were from the Modern Label Punch cut in half and trimmed on each side.

CB EMBF were used for the two different backgrounds pieces.  Subtle Brads were placed on top of the little white diamond shaped pieces that I was able to match up to the background.  Although you can hardly tell it, I ran the brayer over the dotted piece with Craft Whisper White to add a little color variation.  Teeny Tiny Wishes gave me the sentiment.

Take a peek inside ~

I always forget to mention which components I pop up with the use of dimensionals.  Here you can tell that I popped up the piece between his neck and body.  I found it hard to write this post and not have the card to physically check out as I describe it.  If something is not clear, you know you can just send me a quick email and I’ll be glad to bring you up to speed. 

THANK YOU for visiting me today, I hope you were able to find a little inspiration for your next card creation.  *smile*

I am so impressed with the way you created the lamb by using your punches! At first glance I figured you had cut the peices from a cricut or something. So glad I stopped to read.

A terrific card for either gender. I will keep it in mind. Thanks for the inspiration.

Locked onto your blog and glad I did. Love the sweet baby cards. Could you please let me know what CB EMBF stand for on the lamb baby card you did 06/2011. I want to make this as the lamb is so cute. Hoping to hear from you. wimpy@eastlink.ca
