Missing Ewe.

**** Please go HERE for my Craft Room ReDo Blog Candy. ****




Good Monday mornin' to all!

Did you know that the November PWCO Paper Card Kit is chock full of Christmas-themed goodies?!! For just $11.99, you get lots and lots of DP, CS, brads, and ribbons? The primary brand is Echo Park's Holly Jolly Christmas!

I wanted to make a card that was bright and cutesy as the line. The papers I used are quite similar to the kit's, although I think the kit's is even more adorable!!

I also wanted to show how versatile the Barnyard Buddies are. Shelly the Sheep here depicts missing someone special at Christmas. I'm sure we can all relate to having at least one friend or family member away during the Holidays.

As most of my cards are 6x6, I wanted to try something a little bit different. This card is measured 3x3. It's also more CAS (clean and simple), at least from 'my' definition :). Both were a challenge for me!

And le sigh... (French because PWCO is based in Canada, LOL!!!!!).

I am a natural light kind of gal. I love to take pictures of my cards during the day, using sunlight as my source of light. But now, if I want to make my deadlines, I have to be able to craft and take pics any time of the day. The above pic was taken with my camera and its flash, as well as the fluorescent bulbs up above. I think I do need one of those bright LED lamps though. Does anybody have a recommendation as to which lamp I should buy?

BTW, I apologize if the above pic is a bit blurry!

Supplies-
DP- Jillibean Soup.
Stamp- PWCO's
Barnyard Buddies & Sentiment.

Hugs!

Cute card Rinne and a total CAS card!!! As for lighting I'm like you...natural day light...I have a LED desk lamp that I got from Costco but can't seam to get a clean pic with no shadows...I'm thinking that maybe the light has to be straight on and not from above. Got to try it out one of these days.

Awww, this is super cute! That little lamb is so cute and I love the fun paper and trees you've paired her with!
As for a light, I just use a desk OTT Light I got from JoAnn's at 50% off.
