Hogs and Kisses

Last spring I bought a lot of paper from a scrapbook shop in Ohio near my granddaughter.  She told me it recently closed (insert sad face).  I haven't used much of that paper because I don't have a store near me that has all those wonderful two-sided and unique prints and I'm always afraid I'll run out.  I did used two of those papers for today's card. 


The challenge this week at Bitten By the Bug2 is "Farm Animal".  I saw lots of cow cards people had entered but I wanted something different and found this cute pig on Just Because Cards.  Once I found the right color pink for him, I knew this paper from Jillibean Soup would be the perfect background.  The frame is cut from Elegant Edges, matted with the same dark brown as the card base and popped up on foam.  I popped the pig, too.  For the sentiment, I printed Hogs and Kisses on kraft cardstock and cut it with my Tiny Tags dies from My Craft Spot.

I'm also entering him in the Die Cuttin' Diva's Anything Goes challenge.

  3. Adorable card. Isn't it funny how we buy great papers, but then we're afraid to use them. I do that all the time. Perfect sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at BBTB2.

  8. Very cute...thanks for sharing it with us at BBTB2. I have whole stashes of double sided papers that I bring out to use, ponder IF I should use it, and then I put it back to save for another time. I love paper and especially the DS papers.
