I got a wonderful package in the mail today! It came from My Craft Spot and it had the most beautiful toys in it!! I could not wait to play! Here is a birthday card I made for a knitty friend using the Hand Dyed Crinkle Ribbon and stamps from Sweet Sentiments Set #1 that were in my package!
I was following the sketch from GAB challenge #10 and I was using my scraps from my Camping Trip LO. I had planned on using the other side of the polka-dot paper but accidentally applied my adhesive to the wrong side...oppsies! Oh well, it still looks cute and I loved the way the ribbon matched the paper! I also love how the ribbon tied so nicely on this. If you look closely, you'll see that it is just a bunch of cheater knots, not an actual bow!
The lamb is double layered and I thought it was a fitting image for a friend who knits. It also went nicely with the inside sentiment! I love the quality of these stamps and they stamped so nicely (even over the layers of paper like on the "Happy" part of the outside sentiment). I added a little tag to the lamb and hand wrote the "Baaa" sentiment.
Here is the card the girlies made with the scraps while I was working on my card! My Oldest E wanted to cut a little lamb for the card with the cricut but Middle E wanted a baa, baa black sheep. Looks like Middle E won! Baby E worked on her normal job of floor clean-up, picking up all the little pieces of paper (some of which I'm sure I will find in her diaper). The funniest thing I saw was the label on the Cosmo Cricket paper reads "Acid Free. Lignin Free. Fat Free. Sugar Free. High in Fiber. Happy Trails"! Good to know because Baby E eats a lot of paper...hehe!
