CCEE1513 Lamb

March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb (we hope!).  My final challenge this month is to make a card using the image of a lamb.  If you have no lambs, you may use any farm animal.

On my card, an escapee is going to have a better day than his pasture-mates, for sure!

Please join us, linking your card to our blog HERE.  Thanks for joining me this month.
