Gerda Steiner 'How Are Ewe'

A new line of products 'Gerda Steiner Designs' were recently introduced into the Simon Says Stamp Store and I just had to get me a couple of sets. They were in my craft room waiting for me when I returned home from my trip YAY :-) 

Every year I send a birthday card to a friend, who used to live on a sheep farm, and the card must have a sheep on it! When I saw this How Are Ewe Set I just had to get it especially for her :-) 


I used a Memory Box Grand Stick Frame to cut an aperture into the front of the card and stamped the sheep on the inside. I then used acetate to create the window, which makes photographing it difficult  impossible without getting a reflection ,,,,, 


I also made a little notebook to go with it 


and left a message on the first page ;-)



and this is the  How Are Ewe Set, isn't it gorgeous ❤️

Thanks for looking! I hope you all have a lovely day whatever you are doing! The sun is shining here so I think I might just grab my book and sit out with a coffee and my kindle for a bit ;-) 

Challenges:
Less Is More.   Use A Frame
Use Your Stuff.  Spring Is In The Air
Creates And Makes.  Anything Goes + Optional Springtime
Through the Craftroom Door.   Anything Goes 



Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
