Thank Ewe Card

Quick post today!  I hadn't planned on entering any challenges this week because I have so many Easter projects going right now.  Yesterday, I helped my MIL make little paper Easter Baskets for all of her quilting friends and I got started on making 15 Dozen Bunny Ears for a local Bakery.  I am finishing the ears up today then on to lots and lots of Easter of cards!  I decided since I needed to make a special Thank You Card (not that the ones in my stash are not special), I would whip something up for a few challenges!



Products Used:
  • Scrap Pile CS and Papers (most of the CS is Stampin' Up!)
  • Stampin' Up! Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Punches and Dazzling Diamonds
  • County Life Cricut Cartridge
  • My Pink Stamper Punnylicious Stamp Set
  • Ribbon is from Michaels
  • Signo White Gel Pen
  • Stampin' Write Marker
Challenges:
Scraps 4 Fun Use Your Scraps Challenge (I got to use lots of my little scraps on this one!!)
FCCB Challenge Me Monday #53 Looks Like Spring (and I'm entering on the first day of the challenge instead of the last like I usually do...hehe)
Cooking with Cricut C-22 Lions and Lambs (I was sad that I wasn't participating this week but the "Thank Ewe" gave me the perfect chance...YAY!)
Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #7 Spring is on the way (Hopefully Mother Nature figures that out soon!!)
Flutter By Wednesday #147 Open Challenge but you must have a butterfly, fairy or angel on all creations (My daughter's Native American name is memengwaa which is butterfly in Ojibwe and I tend to do a lot of butterfly projects for her.  Therefore, I was so happy to find this challenge blog by way of Kristie...thanks Kristie!!)
My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #1Tie a Bow (Kimberly has the most incredible ribbon and I am very excited for her!  This is the very first Monday challenge at her blog so hop over there and play along.  I haven't actually tied a bow for a while.  I've been using the cheater method so this was a challenge..hehe)
Talk Time Tuesday Looks Like Spring (It doesn't feel like Spring around here but it is sunny outside.  We'll take it!!  I love the wonderful tips shared on Talk Time Tuesday.  Thank you Cathie for the invite to enter this today)
All those challenges in one simple and quick Thank Ewe Card!  Thank you ladies for all the work and time you put into these wonderful and fun challenges!  I truly do appreciate it and I have such a fun time playing along! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Um... WOW!!! I think that pretty much covers it ;) Seriously though it's gorgeous. I love how you've included a lot of patterns and colors but didn't make it look too cluttered or busy.

This is so cute, I love this card! I would never have thought to used the blue checkered paper in the sky area, but it looks fantastic!
