Thank Ewe.

Click on any image to enlarge.

These are thank you cards that I did for all of my friends that sat with me during my recovery at home, and ones that brought meals for me and my husband. I'm still recouping, and will for a few more weeks, but I am getting a little stronger each day. The three cards I've posted today were done over several hours and days, as I am unable to sit at my table for too long a time.
I did these cards assembly-line style. There was quite a bit more to them than I first planned, but I don't like to give less than my best. I did around 28 of these, and I have a couple left for anyone else that might warrent one.
I again used my "Just Because" cartridge, and ran the lamb's coat through my Cuttlebug. I pretty much did the card as it is in the layout. However, I did add my own special touches, such as the faux stitching, high-lighting the words, the jewels, and the butterfly at the top. I also used colored paper on the inside that I cut with decorative edged sizzors and then inked the edges.
I'm entering this in One Stitch at a Time - furry friends and at Cricut Cardz Challenge - butterfly or birds.

I was so mesmerized by the adorable embossed sheep I almost missed the required butterfly for the challenge. I'm happy to see that card made up because I have that cartridge but haven't gotten around to that cut yet. Thanks for joining us at CCC.
