Playful Goats

Yippee! 8 whole days off work! You can tell I'm excited, right?! I've got a few things planned but I'm also looking forward to some uninterrupted crafting time. Bliss!

Today I want to share a card I made over the weekend from some of the lovely stash Tracy sent to me in my recent DTDF DT parcel. I have to admit, this High Hopes stamp isn't a stamp that I would have ordinarily been drawn to but I totally suprised myself as I loved working with it! Once I worked out what I was doing, it was great fun to colour.

In hindsight, I wish I'd not included the flower and had just rounded the end off like the other end.... I always do this, I'm such a perfectionist! Never happy!

Goodie List........
Stamps: High Hopes - Playful Goats - available here, Sentiment by Elzybells.
Paper: 3 Bugs in a Rug, Stampin' Up! Cardstock in Barely Banana and Certainly Celery.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Brads from stash, Stampin' Up ribbon from RAK.

Right, I'm off to jump in the shower, ready for my day of craft shopping, clothes shopping, Starbuck sipping, eye testing and car washing! Enjoy the sunshine peeps! ~♥~

Beautiful card - so right for spring with these lovely and joyful animal creatures! :-)

When I was a little girl, my grandmother had a little farm - and I had my own sheep. It was so much fun with the cute lambs!!
