Five Minute Friday: Love Ewe

Happy Friday! Do you have any lovey dovey plans? Do you have a nice long weekend for Presidents’ Day?

Today’s card is another one layer card. I love the simplicity of just one layer and it makes it SO much easier to mail. I used Unity’s Love Ewe, stamped the sheep in Palette Noir and the greeting in L’Amour Red. I colored the faces with a Prismacolor pencil and then mashed (yes, that’s the official crafty term) Polar White Flower Soft on the sheep for fur. I love that it adds texture and a little shimmer. Speaking of Flower Soft, have you checked out the new section of the store lately? The new Ultra Fine Flower Soft is there and it is a must have!

Anyway, I finished off my card with a scrap of some sheer red polka dot ribbon wrapped around the top. Voila!

On a personal note, would you please take a minute to go and vote for Barbo in the Bissell MVP contest? Voting is only open until the 18th so please go now! The winner gets to donate $10K to their favorite pet charity and we would just LOVE to be able to give that money to Pilots 'n Paws to allow them to save more pups like Barbo. They do make you register to vote so they can make sure there's no voter tampering but it only take a minute. Please? Pretty please? What? My begging isn't enough? How about this? Go and vote and come back here and leave me a comment that you did (I'll be able to see the votes so be honest!!!) Everyone who does will get emailed a 10% off coupon to use during the month of March. Be sure to leave me your email address if you're not logged in when you leave your comment.

So thanks if you do...

Whatever you do this weekend I hope you enjoy yourself! Have a great one and thanks for popping by!

Awww...Kate this is one adorable card. Simple, clean and oh so cute. What a great idea to use flower soft for their wood.

And that picture of Barbo - so very precious!
