She Believed..


I have a fun card I made using a SU! Hardwood background stamp along with a This Little Piggy stamp set for the image. I colored the piggy with Copics, die-cut the image panel with a MFT stitched circle die, and cut the scalloped mat with a SB die. The hardwood was stamped on kraft and sponged with 3 different distress inks. I added some pink twine and called this one done. The inside says simply "so she did!" I thought this would be encouraging for a child, so it's going into my next Cards for Hospitalized Kids box.

Speaking of card donations, I added a link on my sidebar to the Caring Hearts Card Drive. Click it to be taken to the blog who hosts this event where Christmas cards are donated to nursing homes. I just sealed up a box of 126 cards heading there and this is why I make Christmas cards all year long. I have plenty for me to use personally and plenty to share with this great charity card drive.

I'm entering this card into the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge #7 where you can make anything - it just needs to include a critter on your card. I guess a flying pig can be considered a critter? LOL

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Monday!

Very sweet card today, Carol! That piggy set has some of the cutest pig images in it! Your card is just perfect with the hardwood stamped on the cardbase and then sponged! Love the scalloped circle under your stitched piggy panel and the twine just finishes it off nicely! Great card and by all means this could be used for a child to encourage them! Love it!!!!! TFS and stay dry! Dumping & blowing buckets here in Red Lion but we SO badly need it! Hugs~

These piggies look so good with the wood that indeed, only some pink twine for your pink swine is needed.

Got a peek at the flying pink pig when looking at your fab silhouette card. Had to drop down a post to check it out, and how darling & cute it is! Love the flying lady pig in pink with the dark element of the woodgrain background. YOu sure know how to pick your papers! Total delight on this one...made me smile. TFS
