Knitting my Mojo!

Here is my Mojo119 submission...a little lambie knitting. I made it for my friend, Michelle. She is, you guessed it, a knitter! I thought it would be a fun unexpected New Year's giftie to send to her.

I took my layout inspiration from Julee's
Mojo Monday 119 sketch, seen above. I knew that I wanted to use papers from an SEI pack that I picked up last month, Chick a Doo. I originally wanted to make this a calendar, but quickly realized that I would be covering up all of this pretty green lace so I put my Mojo cap on and came up with the custom blend skeins of yarn.










The little lamb image is a Rubber Soul stamp that I can't remember where I purchased, but I think it was at a local scrap booking store several years ago! I stamped the image in Memento tux. black and coloured with Copic markers. I placed her on a petite scalloped blue circle and added some dimensional foam to the back to give the little lamb a bit of pop. I then used (for the VERY 1st TIME and LOVED it!!!)a JustRite border stamp from the Deluxe round Monogram kit and cut it out with a scalloped circle Nestability. I layered a round green circle behind that and placed all on a larger blue circle from the same SEI Chick a Doo paper kit, very cute papers in this kit! I bought the charm on ebay and attached it with a strand of embroidery floss. The white floral panel has the looped edges on it from a MS border punch. I thought these were appropriate loops to use to resemble yarn loops and knitting stitches. The green jewels on the scalloped circle are from K and CO.
Thanks for peeking in today. Have a good one
