Tickled Pink

Happy Friday My Friends!

Whew, what a week! I am so glad it's finally the weekend and I can relax a bit! Even though I have a busy weekend planned, I know I don't have to wake up at 5am! YAY!
I received this little piggy head sticker from the sweet ladies at Making Handmade Cards a while back, and I wanted to use it, but I had no idea how to until I was visiting the Papertrey Ink site the other day and came across there stamp set you use buttons with and idea flashed in my head! Funny the places you get inspiration isn't it!
I really love the color combo of pink and green and since the little piggy was pink, I decided to dig through my scrap bin and find some papers to match. The green polka dot papers I made using my new pencil eraser and a green stamp pad. I cut out the tail and feet for the pig using my Cricut Animal Kingdom cartridge.
I made the tickled pink tag using my Printmaster program. Then for a a dab of bling I dotted the I's with a pink crystal.
The green flower, pink dotted yo-yo and flower brad all came in a kit I got at Sweetarts Paperie. I also decorated the inside of the card to match the outside. This was such a fun card to make. I love it when a plan comes together the way I wanted it to! *wink*
That's all for now. THANK YOU for visiting me today. Please join me again next time for more card fun! HUGS!

Pin It!
