That's all folks!



Another adorable stamp from doggonestamps.com! I knew when I saw this little piggy, for some reason, I wanted to make a very cartoony back drop for him. So, here he is in his cartoon meadow. I found the quote and it just felt right. I really like the cartoon feel of the picture paired with the elegance of the quote and the lines of the curvy rectangle nesties - it just feels like a story book. This is for the challenge on papercraftplanet.com in the doggonestamps forum. The challenge was to make a purple card. Well, I'm not much of a purple kind of gal. But, I do like almost amethyst. So, I paired it with certainly celery and so saffron. Then I threw in some black to ground all of those pastels a little bit. I'm not sure where I got the ribbon, but it matched well. And now a message to spellbinders - PLEASE make another set of the curvy rectangles! Everytime I use these I have to cut the second layer by hand because the next size up just seems too big to me. I promise -if you make them, I will be the first in line to snap them up!

I am with you Shelley...Spellbinders needs to make a couple of more sets....a few of the sets desperately need the in between sizing!

Love the little piggie...reminds me of my puppy who likes to lay showing off all her goods to the world!
