SHOPPING OUR STASH #268 - Mary Had a Little Lamb



Hello crafty peeps and welcome! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we'd like to see farm animals on your cards or projects! Here's my card:



and the inside:

In another attempt to use my NBUS, I unearthed a stamp that I won at Kraftin Kimmie stamps in 2013, and yes, this is the first time it's been inked. (Can I tell you that coloring pig tails is very hard to do? This image was my 3rd attempt.) Here's a tip: if you screw up coloring an image, keep it, and use it to practice on for future color combos. 

Ok, so it's your turn. Just create a card or project using a farm animal and link it up at Shopping Our Stash!  For more inspiration, please check out what the Design Team have created for your viewing pleasure, and please leave them some bloggy lovin! And 'hay'! We have a Guest Designer joining us this month! Please also welcome Jennifer Fahnestock and check out the adorable card she made!

Remember that we are looking for Guest Designers now! If you wish to be considered as GD for October, simply add "DT" after your name when linking up! 

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!

  8. Reading blogs with a headache is fun... when I first read your comment about colouring pigtails, I thought, wait, it's a lamb! ROTFL! That being said, this is such a sweet and perfectly coloured card.

  13. Critter cards and puns just seem made for each other! Love the curly-wurly edging you've got in the background - it's a lovely touch. It's a great little critter card.

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
