PIGGY LOVE

I always send my girls a little something for Valentines Day.  When I was at Home goods, I saw a lot of cute pig kitchen utensils  Thats where the inspiration came from.  I made the Shaped card with my gypsy.  The Pig is from create A Critter 2.  I made her too big for the hat to fit.  The background is embossed with Cuttlebugs rose folder from Once Upon A Princess set.  The fun eyes are Creatology (on clearance at Walmart).  The Pig is mounted on a Action Wobble.  The heart paper is a scrap, all other is DCWV.

KNIT HAPPENS

We celebrated my moms birthday this weekend.  She loves to knit.  Lately she has been knitting clothes for teddy bears, then she donates them to hospitals.  I used a TPC studio stamp set called "Yarn Crafts".  One of the stamps says "Knit Happens"  I didn't use it for my mom, it may offend her.  But I have a kitty cat card in mind for my daughter.  I love that Michaels had a yarn themed gift card.I am entering this gift card holder into DL ART Thankful Thursday Use Pink/Red Challenge

POCKET MONEY

Hello, How are you today.  Keeping warm, I hope.  The weather is very foggy here.  I didn't realize how much I depend on the sun when photographing cards.  Last week I bought the DCWV Denim Stack.  There is a page of pockets.  I cut them out to use as gift card or money holders.  I used kraft paper for the base.  I popped up the pocket with dimensional tape.  There is room to hide money or a gift card.   PAPER PLAYTIME is having a "Use Brown" challenge.  Also DIE CUTTING DIVAS are having a "Use a border Punch and Ribbon Challenge.  I made the envelope with a sheet from the stack.

CIRCULAR BLUE AND GOLD CARD

This is a card I worked off and on for a few days.  Now that I have completed it, I think it is OK.  I designed the card around two challenges.  Only I didn't read all of the guidelines  so it only fits one challenge.  FCCB is having a challenge where there has to be a tag on your project.  I cut the tag from a Child's Year.  The shaped card and wording is from Wild Card.  All papers are Recollections, glitter is Martha Stewart.  Embossing folder is Sizzix.  Threads are from my stash.
