This week I'm using my new Button Buddies stamp set again.
The pig really caught my eye and, since I wouldn't dream of sending a pig image to a female person, it's making an appearance on my male card today! Can you see that you could easily add a button to its snout?! I don't usually use buttons for male cards though so I just stamped my pig twice, punched out the nose with my 1/2" circle punch and popped it up with a dimensional. Isn't it cute?!
The pig is masculinised by the gorgeous new woodgrain background stamp - such a useful addition to your male stamping arsenal! Now I wouldn't normally use punning sentiments on my cards but I did think the expression on the pig's face made this one essential! I made it on the computer and printed it out on Very Vanilla card stock.
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Woodgrain, Button Buddies
Ink: Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Blushing Bride
Card stock: Confetti Cream, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Whisper White
Other: Water colour pencils (for the pig's eyes), 1/2" circle punch

My youngest son is preparing to go on a school trip at a schools adventure centre and has been busy getting out suitcases and walking boots and sleeping bags. I advised him to practice getting the sleeping bag in its sleeve as the children will be expected to pack for themselves on the trip home. "Oh I can already do it," he told me confidently. There was a storm of scepticism from the rest of the family at this - we have all had our battles with sleeping bags and he is quite small for his age. His response was to fling himself onto the sleeping bag, turn into a whirlwind of arms and legs and finally step back with the sleeping bag tucked neatly into its sleeve! How did he DO that?!!! My older son summed it up in a word: "Respect!"
I hope you had a lovely weekend. I had a lovely time helping one of my friends to celebrate her birthday. I'll post the card I made for her tomorrow as well as the gift bag I put her present in - I was really pleased with them! Hope to see you then,
