Baa Baa Black Sheep

There's a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge Blog starting today!  It's a favorite of everyone...ANYTHING GOES. I used this adorable stamp by Little Miss Muffet Stamps named Claribella Sitting.

I fell in love with this little lamb and as I picked my colors, I began singing "Baa Baa Black Sheep Have You Any Wool" song that I grew up with. So, my little lamb is black and I used black flock all over her except her hoofs and face since I wanted to be able to see her face and coloring it black just wasn't an option. So, she really is soft and fluffy like a lamb!

I used my sewing machine and did a zigzag stitch all around my layers. My stitching has improved tremendously after getting a new sewing machine by Husqvarna. When I 'interviewed' the sewing machines, I took a double piece of card stock with me. Whichever machines sewed nicely on the cardstock were in the running to come home with me. Then the final decision was: how hard was the machine to figure out how to change the stitches, thread the bobbin and thread the machine. hahaha! I am not a sewer, as you can tell. The Husqvarna won for ease and the fact it sewed great on double cardstock! (P.S. I'm not getting anything free from the company for plugging the Husqvarna machine.)

We're sponsored by our own Little Miss Muffet Stamps and one lucky winner will be awarded a $10.00 Gift Voucher to the LMMS shop!

The team at Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge blog have some outstanding creations to share with you and I hope you'll visit and join the ANYTHING GOES challenge.

  1. Your creation is adorable, Gail . . . what a great idea to color her in black, and then to add flocking - a fitting "touch" for her wool. Cute, spring-colored background and your stitching is awesome. A pretty Easter card to some lucky recipient. Superb coloring, by the way!!

  2. Aww- so cute! adorable little lamb, fabulous colouring and a lovely CAS design.

  3. Cute little sheep. I have to say, your zig zag stitching is perfect and almost acts like it's own embellishment on the card.
