xoxo-piggy-valentine

This is another card the lady at work wanted. This one is for her granddaughter (almost 1) to give to her mom (the ladies daughter). She wanted a pig with this saying:
Love you little!
Love you BIG!
Love you just like a little PIG!!
Happy Valentine’s Day
(the ladies MIL use to say this to her daughter…so a family saying)

I put the saying inside the card and used this cute pig from Imagine That! Digi Stamp on the front. All the paper came from my scrap drawers! Yep, I have way to many scraps!!!I used Atlantic Hearts Sketch #198 for my inspiration.

Farm themed baby card

Farm Baby Congratulations

Inside: It’s a Boy! Congratulations

One of the guys I worked with last year just had his first baby so I wanted to make him a congratulations card. From what I could get out of him is that his wife was doing a vintage farm theme…well that’s how I interpreted it! So I went through my files and searched the internet and thought Farm Critters and Barn from Doodle Pantry fit the theme. I was stumped at first as what to do with the image because I just didn’t want to print it out and stick it on the card. So I went back to the internet where I found this awesome card on The Rubber Cafe Design Team Blog. The design it was the perfect design for all the elements I wanted on the card. My best friend, Stephanie, took my ideals and made the cute saying!

Wow! Just made that deadline!! Why I scheduled a craft the same weekend as Mother’s Day weekend is beyond me. I know I have several card orders to do every year for Mother’s Day. But somehow the good Lord helped me to get it all done!

I made this card for the progressive challenge at From the Heart Stamps. Each month she has a digi of the month and if you make a project using it then you get next month’s image free. I loved this saying so I decided to go with that. I also needed a card to mail to my best friend as I decided this year I was going to mail her a card each month. I have done good so far except I didn’t get the card in the mail yesterday so it was the first month I missed. But I plan on mailing it tomorrow so I will mail two in May…hope that counts! I also decided I would use this card as one we will make at the Retirement Home next Saturday. I found 3 different patterned papers in my stash and this is what we will make!

Did you see how PigWit was colored? Well, I batted my eyelashes and asked my husband to color him in photoshop for me. He did and turned the outline a mauve and I loved it….why didn’t I think of that!

CHALLENGES:

1) From the Heart Stamps – use the digi of the month to create a project and get next month’s image FREE!

2) Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge #137 – Dots. I used big dots but they are still dots!

SUPPLIES:

I then saw Anna’s totally cute Halloween card done with this sketch and knew I wanted to lift it for this card.

Healing Thoughts

Inside: Healing thoughts and prayers are being sent your way.

I have 2 sisters that come to my craft class at the retirement home. Both of the ladies are in their 90’s (probably average age for the class!) but they show up every month they can. This month one of them couldn’t come to class because she fell and broke her hip so I made this card for her. Wanted her to know that she was missed and we are praying for her.

I used the March Stamp of the Month at {From the heart stamps} called Hamlet PigWit Think Spring! This card is a hybrid card…half computer colored and half with Tombow markers.
