The weather’s changed a bit here … it’s no longer wild and windy, wet and stormy … for now. We’ve had some sunshine … and blue skies … and bulbs are coming up. I’m feeling spring like and frivolous … rather like this card …
CASology‘s Cue Card this week is Jump. Frolicking sheep? Does it for me … especially leaping playfully over the loopy ‘h’ … at least two have made it without mishap, wonder if the rest will? Happily, this is a one layer card and it has sheep repeated on it … so it’s going to bounce over to One Layer Simplicity‘s Can You Repeat That challenge (it’s rather more frivolous than my usual OL cards but that’s springtime for you!) Said sheep are making a Cameo Appearance on this flower strewn hill, so they’ll do the same at Simon Says Stamp Monday … and as I’ve used one of Winnie & Walter‘s sentiments, I’m joining in at their February linky party too.
I hand cut a hill mask, sponged the meadow and added the W&W sentiment. Those eagle eyed types among you will notice that there’s a flourish on my ‘happy’ that isn’t on the original stamp. I turned the stamp upside down and stamped the ‘y’ flourish onto the ‘h’ … it gave the word some balance on that curvy hill. There were a lot more flowers in the meadow to begin with … it’s just that the Penny Black sheep made their way across it, eating as they leapt. They’re so happy that they’re sporting their party wool … all shimmery and shiny with Wink of Stella … and it’s rubbed off on the sentiment too … must’ve been while they were eating (does that sound like a good title for a movie??).
I’m delighted to say hello to some new friends tonight … Katie at arteKatie, who has an eclectic, eco-friendly and fabulously original style … Christine at Poppaea Cards, who has a plethora of CAS cards to delight you … and Shona from Twine Around, who started blogging last September and already has a site full of deliciousness! Meander over for a visit to all three and enjoy! Welcome, ladies … and thank you 🙂
I’m off for a wander through blogland to see what everyone’s been creating. Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
