This week we are helping to celebrate the 100th birthday of a woman here in California. Mrs. Lamb lives in the beautiful San Luis Obispo area. Rolling hills studded with beautiful oak trees, where the coastal fog comes in to kiss the day awake and provide a little relief from the heat.
This week our cards are about Lambs and sewing. There is no sewing on my cards, but I did bring a wonderful Ewe and a card that has rolling hills with little lambs frolicking about. Mrs. Ewe is watching over the little lambs, making sure they don't stray to far from the flock.
The card with all the little lambs, is done using fabric for the sky and rolling hills. The MB tree is colored and the little lambs are fussy cut.
The sentiment is done in my own handwriting, since I don't own a stamp that says Happy Birthday to Ewe.
What a joy to be helping Evelyn celebrate her 100th birthday!

Hmmm I can't understand why you don't have a Happy Birthday to Ewe stamp Jennifer.... This is absolutely gorgeous, I love your little lambs and the bright happy feel. I think this birthday is going to be very memorable.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

I LOVE Mrs Ewe's googly eyes watching over her babies... tooooo cute! Your little lambs are just precious and your fussy cutting is awesome! I also love how you created dimension by using tow different dp's in your rolling hills. Brilliant!!! Evelyn is sure to feel the joy of these bouncing baby lambs when she opens this card. Much smiling will be the order of the day...
