Missing Ewe

Now I know what you're thinking...its not winter, its spring. But trust me, if you lived in my house, you'd sure think it was still winter. This is one of two completely non-traditional cards I passed off as Mother's Day cards this year. I think I got bored w/ the traditional "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment (that and I forgot to buy a new one this year).

But me mum's a knitter, in a really bad way too. She's a tad obsessed with knitting. I only wish I was as good at it as she, b/c its like the perfect mobile hobby. Take it on the plane, to baseball games. You know those copics and stamps and paper (and now dies) just dont travel as well as a ball of yarn and some knitting needles.

So when I saw this TCP image, Sheepish, come out (a really long time ago) I thought it'd be perfect for her. The sheep. The Scarf. It all just works. And I got to use my giant icing die that I've been hoarding.

You know what would be the perfect adornment? Some knitted flowers. I think I've seen crocheted ones in blogland somewhere. I believe my mom, with her awesome knitting powers, had promised to knit me some. But alas, I have yet to get any...*hint, hint*

The Dets:
Stamps: TCP Sheepish
Paper: PTI ocean tides, MME stella rose, vellum
Ink: Memento black, Copics
Accessories: MFT snowflake die, TCP icing die, felt

  1. So...are you calling your mother a sheep?

    Muy cute, as always. I dig the DP'ed scarf!! Looks like an old man's scarf though, hehe...
