One Little Piggy!

Adorable, adorable stamp set!! Had to have! :-)

I've met a few people that have little pink pigs as pets, and after seeing those little things in person, you kind of get it. lol They truly are SO cute! I'll stick with my cuddly, sweet, soft furred dogs though and just enjoy the cute piggies in my stamp set. :-)

Keep your little pigs a nice clean pink, make 'em dirty & muddy or make them purple or blue! 
It's all in the power of your creation! :-)
I stamped mine on Blushing Bride card stock, and with my Aqua Painters threw on a bit more pink for shadowing and then used Soft Suede to add a bit of dirt from her mud bath before she decided to take a nice stroll through the flowers. :-)

Have fun with your little piggies!

"Do something creative every day."
What a true sentiment! Whether it's cooking, baking, decorating, writing or crafting....its about doing something every day that you love and feel inspired by! There's so much in life to enjoy so lets find the time to create a little something every day. :-)

Neat little set by Stampin'Up! called "Crafting Forever."

My 14 years old daughter LOVES mermaids!
Now, don't get me wrong, she also loves make-up, fashion, high heels, talking back and of course....boys! :-) Yes, my teen girls are also trying to grow up too fast, so you are not alone.....we Mom's and Dad's are all turning gray together! :-) So, when I saw the new "Magical Mermaid' stamp set, I knew I had to have it and figure out a cute design for her.....anything to hold onto the small things that peek out and show us they are still little girls at heart.

Hope you enjoy the design as much as she does!
Have fun with all sorts of color....and of course don't forget the glittering diamonds to make your mermaid shimmer!

~Happy Stamping!

50 Amazing Years!

My parents celebrated their 50th Anniversary this month!
Their love, patience and dedication to each other is an inspiration to all their children and grandchildren!
I'm so very proud of who they are and grateful for the love and dedication they hold for their family!
Thanks Dad and Mom for being the pillar of our family and the greatest example of true love we've ever seen! Love you both dearly!!

This is the card I made for their Anniversary....I know 50 is usually done with gold, but if you can believe this, I had no gold in my stock! lol. So, I went with silver instead. Using several die cuts and a bit of bling and ribbon, I think I managed the simple, elegant look I was hoping for. 

Hope it inspires you to get out your Big Shot and get rolling! :-)

~Happy Stamping!
