Lamb or Mutton?

     Hi Everyone, I have 2 DT cards today, this is for -

our new named blog

although the rules are slightly different, we still have the same challenge

Anything Goes but they MUST feature a critter as the main focus

Whether Furry, Feathered, Fantasy, Fairytale, 
Scaly, or Insect, there must be a critter...

This card was made with one of those wild moments of memory of something different? Well I used them in this card and today's. I wanted something very simple for my card class, some of whom have mental health problems and thought it would tie in with my DT post today.

Anyhow, I cut the free file, I have had it from 2011, with my die cutting machine. It consists of a scallop shape for the body,  a head and pants/legs. I decided to use makeup remover pads, to make a "wooly" sheep. 

The parts were cut from white and black card and the ear inserts from pink card. I got my class to put it all together, starting with splitting the pad in half and attaching it to the scalloped white base, for the body. Then putting everything else together, with wobbly eyes added last. I'm happy to say they loved it.

I also computer generated the sentiment and had them add it to a black base. It took a while to cut them for 12, I never know how many are going to attend, so always prepare 12, this card was eventually made by 6. I'm sure the other 6 will come in handy in a few weeks for other newbies to the class?

makeup pad - stash!
eyes - stash
sentiment - computer generated

On the same day, I also got them to do this, and as it's an animal, I thought I may add it here. Again all pieces cut out on my Cameo, to let everyone be able to just put it together, another easy make for them also.

Two great projects, I am sure that had a ball. Creating anything with animals always goes down well. The makeup cotton wool for the fluffy sheep is a brilliant idea.
