My Time To Craft 'Farmyard Animals' Challenge

Good morning to you. What happened to our mild Autumn it has suddenly become freezing overnight and I don't like that especially as we are having fireworks and a bbq today for our two grandchildren's birthday which were yesterday and tomorrow. Not that we particularly feel like it as both David and I have been ill all week with man flu/swollen glands and no voice, can you guess who has what lol. I am still also struggling with the fallout from my methadone being stopped and the morphine being started.

Anyhow I am here today with my post for this weeks challenge at My Time To Craft which is 'Farmyard Animals' not an easy one and I confess I struggled as I didn't have a single image that suited the challenge so I had to put my Silhouette Cameo to work. I found this little lamb while searching the store and thought it was quite cute with it's sentiment so here it is. 

I have had these embossed cards in my stash forever and rarely get to use them but decided this little ewe looked better as a clean and simple card rather than layers. I gave her a little edging with some Old Paper Distress Ink just to make her stand out from the white background. I was trying to work out how best I could bring the embossing out without making my lamb fade into the background. I added a little Mod Podge to the hearts just because I had it out but they actually look quite nice.

5" Square Embossed Card Blank - Dovecraft I think but as I said I have had them forever
