Mama LoveBug does NOT have a machine to cut SVG so I fussy cut by hand. I'm Not Horsin' Around - I Love Ewe was my theme, using the Horsin Around PPbN collection to mix in with The Easter Lamb. Here's what I started with:

These are the piecings that I used - see the lamb chopped up a bit
 These are the gold embossed western images from Pink By Design and some buttons I utilized for embellies.
 Next I constructed my pocketcard with some cardstock from a farm collection.
 I made my own paper using the PPbN championship horse - I took a side view photo of this.
Here's my completed card with a computer-generated sentiment - I'm Not Horsin' Around - I Love Ewe with the Ewe gold-embossed.
This is a picture of the base of the card where I used the horseshoe and a button with twine.
 Finally I am sharing the card insert so You can see gel pen and Stickles for enhancement of the images.

Winner, Winner, Come To Dinner - The Winner of the Last PPbN DT Hop - LISA GAYLE -"Indymermaid" -  Congratulations - please send Nikki or Mandy an email with the files you want!  We can't wait to see what you create!

Hi everyone! Hope you've been enjoying all the different ways you can use this little lamb! I (Kimi) decided to make up a party invite! I couldn't resist pairing the Easter Lamb with the Red Solo cup from the "Let's Have a Party" set!
I don't know that you can really tell in the photo but I used some fun flock on the little lamb and it's super fluffy and cute in person! I think this would be a fun invite to receive! :)
