This Little Piggy....

Happy Wednesday!

I spent most of last evening down in the basement moving back "into" my stampin' space.  I moved a little of this and a LOT of that up to the dining room before my foot surgery in May and I've been working in there during the time I was recovering...and then some.  I do like having things on the main level but it's really nice having all my supplies within arm's reach.  While I was down there tonight I decided it way past time to purge the things I never use and man oh man is there a nice size pile and I'm only about 1/3 of the way done.  I have lots of retired stamp sets to sell and I will be working on that too very soon.

So after I actually found the top of my desk...I created another card with the Button Buddies stamp set that we'll be using at the "Button Buddies in a Box" Stamp Camp on August 20th.  Incidentally, since there are so many people who'd like to make this set, I'm going to be adding another Button Buddies class the following week.  I'll be posting that along with a couple of other upcoming events soon.

This card has one of my favorite images from this set.....I love it!  
Here it is...

This one is cut from Melon Mambo using the Square Scallop Die for the Big Shot.  I the ran the card through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  I cut Whisper White card stock into a square, inked up my Stripes Embossing Folder with Staz On Black Ink and ran in through the Big Shot twice to get the black gingham piece.  The adorable pig....I like to call her "Talula" (don't ask me why....but I was down there alone and talking to myself!!)  I stamped her with Pretty in Pink Ink and used my Black SU! marker to color in her eyes.  The greeting is from the hostess set "Perfect Words" and is punched out using the Modern Label Punch.  The pink button is from the Soft Subtles Button Assortment.  Iadded a little piece of Baker's Twine thru the holes and the ribbon is 5/8" Whisper White Satin.  Voila!  
Talula is all dressed up and ready to brighten someone's day!
