A cute little lamb!

This card was one of my monthly March class cards.  Check out this cute little lamb!  It is actually from the 'Easter Lamb' stamp- but it would make an adorable baby card or juvenile card too!  

Don't you like the green grass I made with the Fringe Scissors?  And check out the clouds in the background too!  How did I make the clouds?  I used a 2 3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch & sponged around it using Pool Party ink & a sponge dauber. 

Look closely at the lamb!  I stamped her in Archival Basic Gray ink & then I used the Clear Wink of Stella Pen all over the top of her fuzzy fur.  It is really pretty & sparkles in person. 

This is a fun fold card that a dear demonstrator friend- Linda Bauwin shared.  
Isn't it just a neat card!!  I thought it turned out super cute!

Last night I worked on sorting orders & stamping things, burning the midnight oil.  And Deke worked in the field until early this morning.  I took supper out to him about 8:00 p.m. & rode in the tractor for a few rounds with him, so that we could catch up on things about our day.  Here is a photo of us out in the field.  
This morning Masen is here bright & early- as Nathan has an appointment in Iowa City for his wrist. (I am praying that all goes well.)  We'll head out & go pick up the other 3 boys & I'll spend my day with them all.  Deke is off early this morning to chore & he is then headed to the courthouse for the morning.  He'll be home to work on the farm all afternoon.  If it doesn't rain he'll be in the field. 
Then tonight it will be our opening race at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Osky.  (Praying we don't get rained out.)  The twins have soccer practice tonight & we'll then all head over to cheer on Nathan & the #52 Racing Team.  I hope he has good luck!!!!
Last night Nathan went to practice with his red car at the track.  Here are a few photos to share with you....
  • The red car is his old one from last year that they repainted & lettered.  It is his IMCA car.
  • The purple one is a car the guys put together this winter & it is his USRA car.
  • He will be running 2 different stock car sanctions this year. 
Here is a picture of Masen at practice sitting in his racin' chair in the back of the trailer.  He loved all of the cars!
I hope yo have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!
Happy Stamping!
