Baaa, Baaa Birthday Card

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! 

Make sure you check out Kimberly's new line of stamps over at My Craft Spot and let her know I sent you!

That is such a cute card~ Love it~ You really made me laugh about Patrick~ I'm on a non-craft blog with a bunch of women and we usually use a "hot" guy as our avatar....when I started my blog, it never dawned on me that I was using Patrick.....I just love him to pieces and I also use Colin Firth and George Clooney~ But Patrick is the flavor of the month~ (actually 3 months!) Hi to your mom~ :)~

As a knitter, I can tell you this card is perfect. I love the sentiment and crinkle ribbon.

It's good to know that the paper is full of fiber and fat free, because my little one loves to eat paper too. She also loves to dump my little trash can and spread everything out on the floor! I can't wait till she wants to create instead of eat and destroy LOL!
