Precious Little Lamb!

This card is a little different for me in that I would not normally use these colors together to create a baby card, however recently when Kim of My Favorite Things sent me my stamps so I can create my cards for the MFT design team the ribbon I used here was tied around them ... I really loved this ribbon and wanted to use it on one the the cards I created with the stamps. When I saw the sketch for this week's MFT sketch challenge I just knew that I had to use it for that card and as I also wanted to use one of the new sets to be released on 9th January I decided on this baby card.

The lambs are from the new set "punny farms". I stamped these onto my white card using black ink and then used liquid applique to create fluffy looking sheep. My liquid applique is very old so it was hard to apply it to the sheep I actually had to open the tube and squeeze it onto a plate and brush it on ... newer LA would look much better. I used my baby cuttlebug embossing folder to create the background on the chocolate chip card and then sponged it with white ink to highlight the words. I also used my spots and dots embossing folder to create the background on the pink strip. The ribbon is tied around the lower section of the card with the little tags hanging down from the bow.

My Favorite Things will be hosting a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday night (January 9th) from 9-11 pm EASTERN time. There will be sneak peeks, lots of fun and a chance to become MFT’s next Guest Designer. Head over to the MFT forum at SCS for more details.
