As the temperatures have started to increase slightly, we thought today it might be nice to let some of the animals out of the stuffy ‘ol stables and allow them to roam the yard. As we opened all the gates and pens, the courtyard soon looked like a petting zoo as the various beasts wandered about, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. As night began to fall, we started to round them all up only to discover that one of the sheep was missing. We couldn’t find her anywhere on the property, so I saddled up Ruffles and rode through the forest looking for the lost sheep. When I finally came upon her, I was in for a surprise.
had just got another package from Unity in the post, so I was excited to
ink up my new stamps. I started by stamping the hearts (which are now
my favourite heart stamp I own) from the “Loads of Love” set using Victorian Velvet Distress
Ink. I then stamped the image and sentiment from the Unity “Love Ewe”
set, adding a little heart from the Lawn Fawn “My Silly Valentine” set. I
distressed the edges using my blade, Paper Distresser, and some ink,
earning me +120 edged weapon exp points. Lastly I added some delicate
pink ribbon and some teeny-tiny ‘lil pearls to the two corners.
the inside I stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s “My Silly
Valentine”. I then masked off the big sheep and just inked the baby
sheep to stamp underneath.
I stamped more of those awesome hearts from “Loads of Love” onto the envelope to make it match the card front.

to the ewe was a wee ‘lil lamb. It seems we have a new addition to the
stables at the Guild Hall. I named the new baby Dott and smiled as I
watched the mother sheep take care of her newborn.
