Ewe are Awesome

Each month I participate in a theme card from the Crafter’s of Faith group on SplitcoastStampers. This month’s verse is from Psalm 95: 1, 2, 6, 7, 8:

Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our savior. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms. Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us. For he is the Lord our God; and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. Today if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts. Challenge–Make a card with music and a heart somewhere on it. Bonus add a sheep/lamb-but that is not necessary.

It took the challenge literally, as I usually do. Following is my card:

This is also perfect for the Just Us Girls challenge. The heart paper is from The Stamps of Life. I used two green sheets for grass and blue for the sky. The sheep and greeting are from sheep2stamp and patterns4sheep, cut out with matching dies. One of the sheep is a mirror image, so I had to learn how to create this using palette4mirror. The music notes were already cut and in stash; they are from My Favorite Things.

I am pleased with this card. Usually I add the Bible verse to my faith cards, but this time, I with with a fun pun from the sheep set. I have no idea who I will mail this to, but I know I will find someone who really needs this card.

Sheep shaped card

I made a card for a two year old girl who has been diagnosed with Leukemia. Someone posted on Splitcoast Stampers with a request for Christmas cards. Since I just saw this note yesterday, I contacted the original poster and asked if an encouragement card would work and she was excited, so I created something special for a young child.

Sheep Fold-it Front
Sheep Fold-it Inside

I wish I had texture laying around my house, like wool felt, old socks, old wash cloths, or anything to provide texture for the sheep would be fun, but I gave up and went with paper. I looked at the die set and added color like in the photo for the front, then chose a greeting from other stamp sets for the inside. I know the child can’t read, but thought this would provide a fun card for the parents. I think the child will hold the card, open and close it and that is about all. It was mailed today. I hope it bring a smile to the little girl’s face and the parents as well.
