Ewe Are So Sweet!

I have determined that I have three hobbies - buying stamping/cardmaking supplies, organizing stamping/cardmaking supplies, and making cards. Can anyone else relate?

AND... sometimes it seems like I do more buying (insert embarrassed face) and organizing than actually making cards. I have stamp sets that have seen very little (if any) ink. So what's the solution? For one thing, I joined Barb's Challenge Your Stash group on SCS. We have a monthly theme, chosen by one of our members, and on the 28th of the month we show what we made for that theme... but we couldn't buy a single thing to make it. 

Not. a. problem. Have I mentioned I have a lot of stuff???

Barbara chose this month's theme - 

"March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb."

The sky's the limit for how you interpret this theme: lions, lambs, wind, rain, spring flowers, anything that old adage makes you think of. Have fun with it!

This card features a Raisin Boat stamp set... because Saturdays are devoted to Victorine Originals/Raisin Boat on my blog. I love this cute little lamb, so it was not difficult to choose to use it. It's from the Raisin Boat Wild About Ewe, Honey! stamp set.

To make my card, I first smeared a bit of Acrylic paint onto white cardstock to create a hillside. I did this in one swift motion - kind of like a burst of March winds. 

Then I stamped the lamb and sentiment (after the paint had dried of course) and added some layers of DP and CS and then added three heart-shaped brads. It was super easy to make and fun, too.

I hope Barbara and Barb and the other CYS gals like it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
