Easter Lamb Card...

I have always loved sheep and thy are my favorite "Easter animal."  I attended an agricultural high school in the middle of Philadelphia.  When I was young I thought that I wanted to be a vet, and thus I chose to go to that school.  I really loved the sheep and I ended up having one that was "mine."  Her ear tag number was "14," so I named her "Catorce" which means 14 in Spanish (Spanish was one of my very favorite subjects at that time). My junior year of high school, I showed her in the Philadelphia County Fair and won 1st place!!!  Then my senior year, Catorce had twins.  I gave them Spanish names too, I named them Oveja (sheep) and Cordero (lamb).

Here's two photos I found in my high school photo album.  The first one is Catorce and me, the second photo is me holding one of her babies.



I needed to make an Easter card for my Mom. I used this sketch from Friday Sketchers.
