Black Sheep love and a SALE


Happy Wednesday Scrappy Friends! I hope you are out there enjoying your Summer. About 2 weeks ago, I joked with my Getting Cricky DT sisters that I felt like the black sheep of the group - lol - (you can read more on that HERE).   Since then I wanted to create a CAS card that expressed my feelings:  Regardless of how bleak the situation may be or how you may feel or be perceived, You Are Loved! So it doesn't matter if you feel like the black sheep of the group, in your family, amongst your friends remember that us black sheep tend to be special ;) and we are loved. That is my message for you today! :) 


I used the Amazing You set (benefiting Doorways for Women and Families) from KAndrew Designs for my sentiment. I used the Winter Frolic cart for the sheep. I kept it CAS but I added flock to my little black sheep to make him more special :) I also filled the heart with micro beads so it can be a shaker card and I used all scraps (love that part!). Two of my DT Sisters Erika (Shaker Card) and Becky (Scraps) are currently having these mini challenges on their personal blogs so make sure you head over to check them out. Im also playing with Fantabulous Cricut - Lets be Friends.

Thanks for stopping by!

Your card is adorable! Love the flocking on the black sheep. I think we have all felt like the black sheep at one time or another. :)

This is adorable! I know you weren't thinking about it from this angle, but I am a knitter so anything with sheep on it really sends me! Love the simplicity of this card, your simple treatment really suits these charming cutouts! Don't worry about being a black sheep, you would probably find out that others on your DT also feel outside the magic circle. I felt like that back on the Oh, Alice! design team, and now look, I've inherited the whole challenge blog and made it my own - and yours! :)
