What do you call a group of marshmallows?

If you can have a litter of kittens, a gaggle of geese, and a mob of kangaroos, what do you call a group of marshmallows (falling into a cup)?

The stamp set is Your Next Stamp's Cup of Happiness. The sketch is a CASE of Terri Burson's card in the Coffee Loving Cardmakers CASEing DT Link Up Party #9 and the colors are from Your Next Stamp's Color Challenge #56:

From the sketch, I liked the placement of the sentiment in between the droplets falling into the large cup below. However, now that I look at my card again, I'm not sure how all the marshmallows will fit into the cup.

I am submitting this to:

Happy Sheep

Happy New Year! I resolve to make better cards this year, so please let me know how this card can be better :) First step is to follow along with more challenges and get inspired by different layouts and techniques.

A fun, new product for me is liquid applique! I had seen "snow" on a lot of Christmas cards and now I can create snow too <insert evil cackle>, but first... sheep:

It's great fun heating up the liquid applique and seeing it puff up! I can't stop running my hands over the "wool". And, I've already prepped extra wooly sheeps for future cards...

The sheep is from Hero Arts' Happy Day Animals (CL153), which must be a super-old stamp set because it's not sold at a lot of places. The sentiment is Lawn Fawn's So Much To Say, which I love for the variety of sentiments.

My layout, color, and general idea really, came from Your Next Stamp's sketch and color challenge #55. There are sheep in the inspiration photo!!

I am submitting this to:
