Red, White & Blue "HI!"


I'm using the OWH sketch challenge #247 to put my card together today. I used a lot of red, white, and blue snippets for this one. The image had been stamped and sitting in a box for years, so I'm sorry I have no clue who makes it, but that piggy with those heart balloons really made me smile :) The background was done with a PTI center stage die, and I colored the image with Copics to coordinate. The horizontal heart border was done with a Cuttlebug ef strip that came with a larger 5x7 ef and the sentiment is from MFP, layered with a SU! 7/8" scalloped punch.

I'm also entering this into the Snippets Playground #161 (must use snippets)
as well as the Shopping our Stash #186 - (make a love card)

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Squeal! I may be wrong, but that little piggy looks kind of PBish. Don't you just love when you find those hidden treasures? Well done in the r-w-b color scraps.

He is super cute Carol! I love how the card turned out with the red, white and blue. He is a Penny Black stamp, I have him and he's always fun to use!

Carol, your little piggy is just too cute with that curly tail. Love your red, white, and blue theme and that background is super duper.

Now that's a cute way to say "Hi" by anyone's standards. I love those little ef strips, don't you? I have a couple of them and they come in very handy at times. I really like the papers that you used to make a very interesting backdrop for your little piggy. Have a good day.

Hello! I like the way that you combined different striped/chevron patterns for this card. And goodness, that piggy is cute. Hm, maybe I should link up with those two challenges this week, too...thanks for the idea.

Thanks for your visit. Glad to hear you are getting your snowflake out. Just proves they are not just for Christmas!! You could use them for lickle girls who love Frozen!!
