Love Ewe...

 Happy weekend! I can actually say "happy" now that we are above freezing and the ice is melting-yay! It also means I could kick my housebound children out to swim team practice to work off their pent-up energy and I can have a few moments of peace and quiet!

I started this card last weekend, but somehow the week got away from me and I had trouble fitting the image into a sketch and putting all the pieces together until today. I finally decided to use last week's Sweet Sunday sketch, stretched into a square to make it work for my image.

I used an image from my favorite illustrator, Zlatoena, called "Sheepish Love"- so adorable! I colored minimally with Copics and added some glitter to their hearts to give them a bit of sparkle. The image was layered onto Kraft card stock, then onto an eyelet square cut from Riding Hood Red CS, with some small pearls as accents.

The card base is a 5.75" square layered with Riding Hood Red and papers from MME's "Be Loved" set, stitched together around the edges on my sewing machine. I used some of the fun new Baker's twine I bought on Etsy recently to tie on a button from SU's "Deck the Halls" Collection. The greeting was generated in Photoshop, cut out with a Labels 14 nested die and sponged with Blush Blossom ink with the die in place to leave a white edge.

The inside was also finished with a Photoshop generated greeting and matching papers. I was talking to my brother and sewing-not a good thing to attempt, obviously as my top seam was crooked-lol! A scalloped edge to the rescue and it hides my mess up- there are no mistakes in stamping, just opportunities for embellishment! This will probably be hubby's V-Day card this year:))

Hope you're enjoying your day- I definitely have to get out of the house today before I go completely bonkers!

Have a good one~
