A Last Minute Valentine

Here is one last Valentine that I made for my youngest daughter to give to her brother who is away at college.  I decided to steer away from hearts (though I’m not sure the little lipstick marks are any better), but I couldn’t keep away from including pink once I chose the image.

I thought the black could make it a little more masculine.  🙂  I colored this cute pig with Stampin’ Blends markers.  Some black baker’s twine was looped underneath.

I forgot to take a picture of the inside.  I used a Paper Pumpkin stamp that says “Happy Valentine’s Day.”

Enjoy your Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!

This Little Piggy — FMS296

It’s time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our friend who flies the friendly skies (and makes them much friendlier), Jennifer Timko, is our hostess.  Take a look at what she has for us:

A square card!  I love them and don’t know why I never think to make them.

One of my favorite sets in the new catalog is the This Little Piggy stamp set.  I hadn’t had the opportunity to use it yet, but I thought it would be perfect for this sketch.

This adorable little guy just makes me smile.  He is much cuter (and cleaner) than the pigs that were on my grandparents’ farm.  When I was a kid, I spent a good part of the Summer on their farm.  One of my chores often included feeding the pigs.  The little ones were pretty cute, but the big sows… not so much.  Their pen was enclosed by an electric fence, which always made me a little nervous when I had to step over it, especially when trying to balance two heavy buckets of feed and seeing several large, dirty, and hungry sows come running in my direction.

I stamped this image on watercolor paper and colored it with an aquapainter using Powder Pink ink and Blushing Bride ink for the nose.  I also used the Ruffled 3D embossing folder, which is so cool!

I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card.  It says “Loves You.”

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch.  We love to see what you create!  Meanwhile, be sure to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
