Birthday Sheep

 This 'tall skinny' (aka: Slimline) card was made with an image from Stamp'in UP! that I stamped and scanned into my computer so that I could color it and make it larger or smaller as I wished.  This is a free with purchase image called Counting Sheep, it is from the Celebration catalog.  The sentiment is from another Stamp'in UP! set called From All Of Us.

I added some fun DP for the birthday theme (confetti) and added some red ribbon.  I added some sparkle to the hats and to the 'wool'.

The card base was cut using my Cricut.  It is one of the images that came with a cartridge I got called Stretch Your Imagination.  Just a side note...DO NOT BUY USED CARTRIDGES, the cartridges can only be registered to one person in a life time.  Can you tell that I learned this the hard way?  I also used the Cricut to cut the sheep and the hats on the sheep.

Thanks for looking!

Wonderful Lambikins. The older Cricut machines can use any Cricut cartridge since they do not use Design Space but yes the newer models that use Design Space can only be used by the person who originally owned it. I sold my first two Cricut machines at yard sale and currently have an Explore Air & a Maker. I tend to use the Explore Air more although the maker is great for materials that the Explore Air cannot handle easily.

Cute design with the lambs! I have that Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and have used it often, although I've never tried cutting any of the card bases with it. I like the long card shape!
