Cute little Sheep made with Stampin Up punches and me

Hi dear you.

If you're a mom..

  • Happy Mothers Day to you and to all the precious moms out there that are raising up the next generation. You are doing the mightiest of works. You are life giving! Nurturing, shaping and impacting the world with your mothering. Embrace this beautiful position. I hope you feel loved and cared for by your children. Maybe your small wonder is still small, maybe it has been growing up for the last couple of years. All I can say is that I feel blessed to be a mom of 3 wonderful kids (and yes, I am biased :) who've enriched my life in so many ways!

Well.. I will keep this post short today.. This was such a fun card to create. I created it with the Pals Paper Arts #92 Challenge in mind. They encouraged us to use the colors Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz from Stampin Up. I just had to add some Crumb Cake and Whisper White card stock. I asked my son what he saw when he saw my card.. 'A sheep'... (silence)... I think'... he said.. Well.. okay I thought that's good enough.. So I hope you're seeing a sheep as well, because that was in the plan for this card. :)

I used 6 different Stampin Up punches for this card. Do you recognize them? Oh how I love my punches.. More and more I am getting into them. Do you recognize the Owl punch? I get such a kick out of this punch.. There are so many options of using it with all the different shapes that you can pop out of this thing.. I encourage you to just sit down and look at the shapes of this punch and see what you can come up with.. It is so SO FUN!!! I would love to hear from you!

Well, we got go to the Farmers Market here in Calgary.. It reopened in a new location and I heard it is just beautiful in there.. Outside in here Calgary there is a lot of rain and hail today.. Sigh.. Please Calgary.. don't skip 'my' Spring! I'm in need of Spring! and color and birds and flowers and life in the outside world.

Inky hugs, Pauline
