I LOVE the weekly sketch challenge over at the Taylored Expressions blog! If you are up for fun challenge, head on over and check it out! Once again, I don't have cupcakes on my card, but I did use this darling little lamb from the stamp set A Birthday Wish from CTMH!! I have been looking at this stamp set for some time now and finally broke down and bought it and now I wish I had not waited so long to purchase it! The patterned paper that I used is from the Key to my Heart paper pack.
I stamped the lamb onto Bamboo cardstock and then again onto Colonial White cardstock. I added Liquid Applique to the head of the Bamboo image and sponged it with Bamboo ink and added 2 black Bitty Brads for his eyes. I then cut around the mouth of the image stamped on colonial white, sponged the edges with bamboo ink and pop dotted it onto the bamboo image for dimension. I then cut out the body from the colonial white with the exception of the hands and feet and sponged it with bamboo ink and adhered. It is hard to tell from the picture, but I used my Stardust glitter pen on the necklace on the lamb. The flower in the lamb's hand was stamped onto colonial white and colored with Baby Pink marker, cut out and then adhered to his hand.

Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
