Hip Hip Hurray - it's Saturday!

Friday, November 14, 2008

I love Saturdays because it's the weekend and I don't have to be at work and I have time to run errands at my own pace. My three year old has a gymnastics class around 1pm today and then hopefully, we're headed to the Mall to stock up on some winter clothes for her. I can't stand the fact that the closest mall to me is 1.5 hours away! Blah!

Anyway, isn't this a fun card?! I received this image as part of an image swap I was in a few months back, and I had no idea who made it until now. I did a little bit of web surfing (I googled 'pigs + cupcakes rubber stamp') and found out that it's made by Close To My Heart.

I let the pigs do all the talking on this card and matted them front and center on the kraft cs. I used Karen Foster's snap stamp mini alphabet set to stamp the background. Excuse the pun, but I snapped up two of these sets when they were at my LSS a few years back and I'm so glad I did because they were discontinued and it's unbelieveably hard to find any for sale anywhere now! I stamped the sentiment using the new Studio G $1 stamps from Michaels. They're so much fun to play with too! Expecially since I'm severly lacking in sentiment stamps, so these are perfect for me! If I owned this stamp, I probably would have stamped another image and cut out the heads and popped them on dimensionals for a layered look.

Ok, time for me to get going today....hope your day is a fun one!
