Good morning! Today is one of my sweet nieces birthdays - her SECOND actually! Still hard to believe how the time has flown. Here is the card I made for her using some previously released stamps from Simon Says Stamp - there's a bit of a story to it if you read on! :)
We celebrated last night, and totally managed to nail the perfect gift! Since she was itty bitty, her favorite stuffed animal has been a little stuffed "sheepie" that she carries everywhere, and it has been WELL loved, and kind of worn out, although Mommy has managed to rework it a bit to make it last longer! As we were shopping yesterday, we found a SUPER cuddly, and HUGE sheepie! I wasn't sure how she would feel about it - and I didn't want to replace her beloved stuffed animal, but I think the picture speaks for itself:
Oh man...that picture totally melts my heart every time I look at it! Love that little girl! The little sheep from Melody's Easter was perfect! I colored it up, and added a little flower from the same set to make it a bit more girlie!
For the card I started by blending some distress inks on the card base to make a pretty background, then added some water splatters and white paint splatters. Added a part of a doily, trimming it to fit perfectly, some jute twine, a sentiment from SSS Sketch Ranunculus stamp set (such beautiful sentiments in this stamp set!) - and finished off with a few sparkling clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins!
