WHITE WELSH MOUNTAIN SHEEP TAGS

This was a fun one to draw - majestic and haughty looking, standing on rugged terrain with the wind ruffling up his wool.  I love the wild look of all that wool; he looks so indignant about being photographed.

According to the definition:  Welsh Mountain sheep are small, hardy sheep from the higher parts of the Welsh mountains.  The males have horns, and the females are polled or hornless; they have no wool on the face or legs, and they have long tails (normally left undocked).

 I took away the tilt of the head, which makes him look a little less "put out".  When I finished the drawing, I printed it out in a warm sepia tone onto cream colored cardstock.

The PDF for this sheep tag, available in my Etsy shop, Gillyflower Cottage, prints with 4 large and 3 small tags per page.  "To" and "From" prompts are on the front, with plenty of room on the back for a message.
 Here I have one of my Angel Bakery Towels wrapped around a bottle of wine, and topped off with a White Welsh Mountain Sheep Tag.
 Check it out at Gillyflower Cottage - the PDF is only $5.25.  So once you purchase and download, you can print out as many as you like.

MONCHES FARM IS READY FOR CHRISTMAS

My husband and I took a trip out to Monches Farm on Saturday.  It was a sunny, brisk day - perfect for a drive in the country.  Anyone who has taken the trip to Monches at Christmas knows they will be in for a real treat.  You can stand in one spot for a long time just trying to take it all in.  It's a pretty magical spot.  I always check with them before I start taking photos, just to make sure they're okay with it.  Many shops aren't so gracious, but the people at Monches are more than happy to have me snap to my heart's content!  Enjoy!

If you live anywhere near southeast Wisconsin, you might want to take a drive to Monches and attend their Holiday Open House the first weekend in December.

YOU COULD MAKE THAT IS ON FACEBOOK!
