Sugar Pea Shepherd’s Lantern

I owned a couple Sugar Pea stamps I found at an LSS in the midwest a few years ago…but hadn’t shopped at their store yet. (My bad, eh!?) When Taheera told me they were the sponsor for “my” day, I wanted to use their stamps – and I was delighted to see what’s offered in their shop! I bought the lantern die and little shepherd stamp, thinking the shepherd-in-a-lantern would be like my fox-in-a-jar obsession (ha).  I didn’t really look to see if the shepherd would fit INSIDE…but I’m actually glad at the way it worked out in the long run anyway! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Don’t forget to add a treat to the inside of your card! 

Another coloring of the shepherd image I finished last night…I made it a girl, too!
