Farm Animals . . .

Morning Everyone!  
It appears I'm overrun with cute little farm animal images this week so I've created a couple of cards that I like to share with you today!

First is this cute image from Shelly's Images called "Spring Lamb"!  Right now and through the end of the month you can get this image FREE at Shelly's Images for her BONUS CHALLENGE and the only requirement is that you create a card using it and link back to the challenge.  PERFECT for the upcoming Easter cards I know you are all busy creating and it's FREE ... you can't beat that!

I've colored the flowers using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and the sky was done with chalks.  A very CAS creation in order to really showcase this adorable image!  My only embellishment is this soft organza pink ribbon.

Challenges:
Craft Your Passion Challenge - Ribbons or Lace
 The Crafty Bloggers Network - Spring or Pastel
Cutie Pie Challenge - Easter
Daisy Doodles - Easter
Digi Darla's Challenge - Easter/Spring
Paper Makeover Challenge #80 - Pastels
Melonheadz - Easter or Spring
Tammy's Scrapin Corner #54 - Easter
The Pink Elephant Challenge - Easter
Without Words Challenge - Spring or Easter

* * * * *
For my second creation I've used another cute image ... this time from QKR Stampede and it's called "Happy Ducklin #6807".  Although, it appears to be a bit sad to me ... hence the MISS YOU sentiment!  What do you think?

I actually created this card for the Monday Greeting Card Challenge over on The Outlawz Site.  This week, besides using a greeting, the challenge is to 'LAYER IT UP'.  I've used various layers on this creation and had a great time rummaging through my 'scrap box'.  Always a good way to use up those scraps!  Even the oval die cuts were scraps! 

Challenges:
Card Mania #16 - Lots of Layers
Love to Create Challenge - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
MYGRAPHICO Challenge - Anything Goes
Pause, Dream, Enjoy Challenge - Anything Goes
Stamp and Create - Fur or Feathers
Stamp with Fun - Anything Goes
There She Goes Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I appreciate you taking the time!
Hope you've found a little inspiration through my cards and will come back again real soon!

As always . . .
