Card Patterns Sketch # 105

Happy Saturday! This week Card Patterns is sponsored by Catherine Pooler, an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and we were able to play with some yummy paper and ribbon. Here is my take on sketch 105:



I wanted it to be fresh. Can't wait for spring to come! No more colds, flus and whatelse we are suffering from all the time! I hope you are not groaning "butterflies - again!". Can't help it. Please join us this week over at Card Patterns! Find all the info here.


Now I wanted to share photos of my cute little sheep. I made a costume for Alyssa last week when we were invited to a Mardi Gras Party for kids. The idea for the costume is from Martha Stewart. Isn't it the cutest?


I used one of her old tights to create the hat and sewed some felt ears to it. Those cotton balls are all sewn to the shirt. She loved it, but those cotton balls are very fuzzy and she lost some "wool" over the afternoon (especially onto my black cardigan). But I couldn't help hugging her - she was soo fluffy :)



I hope you are well! Enjoy your weekend and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
