Faux bois, little lambs, and flowers, oh my!

Hi everyone, have you been having a good week so far? I have, it’s really beginning to look like spring! I wanted to share a super quick card that I made this morning, that hopefully looks fancy-shmancy:


Wood you believe that the card was inspired by pillows? Oh yes!


I saw these sweet little lambs over at the Purl Bee yesterday and they went straight on my “things I must make someday” list. As I happen to have all the felt needed, I’m hoping to make them before spring is over, ha ha!

(Supplies: Woodgrain, flower and message by Hero Arts.  Tim Holtz distress inks in crushed olive, peeled paint, spun sugar, and barn red, plus Momento rich cocoa (for the message), Versamark (for stamping the flowers), clear embossing powder, and Hero Hues latte chalk ink (for the woodgrain). I used this reverse resist technique, so fun!)

Have you been inspired by anything unusual lately?  I’d love to hear!

  1. Wow, Lisa, this card is so beautiful!
    I just saw the picture of the felt pillows on my friend’s shared items folder on my reader. I was looking at the woodgrain pillow with admiration and my friend has found interest in the lamb pillows.
    It’s amazing how each person finds something else that grabs his attention, while looking at the very same picture.

  2. Oh, Lisa. I *adore* these. Gorgeous!  Thought of you today when I noticed that the Mountain Laurel is finally blooming right outside my office window.  Hugs from down 35!

  3. Of course I believe it! SHUT UP!!!  So GAAAAW-JUS, girl!
