MTS059 Birthday Card for Dana


Happy Monday, everyone!  Hope you are staying warm….it was zero degrees on my porch yesterday morning, but I am thankful I am not in the Boston area….that’s just way too much snow, LOL!  We celebrated Dana’s birthday yesterday (it’s actually today) and I used the Match The Sketch sketch for this week to get me started:

Just before Christmas, Dana, my niece and I were all bitten by the knitting bug, so I thought the retired Hand Knit set, along with the knit DSP from Adventure Bound made a perfect match for her card!  Here ya go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Handknit Birthday for Dana Stampin Up

I watercolored my wee little lamb, which was stamped in Stazon on Naturals White cardstock, and used a little artistic liberty with her wooly coat….I don’t think I have ever seen a lamb with Cajun Craze wool, LOL!  But it matched the opposite side of the DSP perfectly:


I stamped and fussy-cut the other elements, stamped a few knitting needles on the Sahara Sand card base and it was done!  She said she liked it!!!  And Cassidy liked blowing out the candles on the cake:




Thanks for visiting, and enjoy your day!

How adorable, LeAnne! What a perfect card for a knitter, and perfect use for that patterned paper. Oh, and thanks for my sweet Valentine, I love it! ((hugs))

I love that stamp set. I bought it a few years back to give my sister, Sally for her birthday. She owned a yarn shop at the time. I loved it so much, I didn't give it to her. Last night I was sorting all my cards in my craft sale box, and came across one made with this set and thought "I should make a set of cards for Sally for her birthday, and use this fun stamp set." Then, you my friend, give me more inspiration to play with it soon.
