Hogs and Kisses

A quickie for you this morning, I just love this little pig from Hambo Stamps.  I colored him with copics and just noticed I did not ground him- will have to go back and do that now so he does not look like he is floating in mid air.  The paper is from K&Co.

National Nut Day!

It's humor me Wednesday at Catch-The-Bug and Today is National Nut Day so I just had to make a card using this Squirrel image.  My hubby and I fight the squirrels everyday at the bird feeders (we have been winning lately) so I just thought this would be a great VD card or even an anniversary card that would be sure to make him laugh.  I colored with copics and the paper is from K & Co.

Getting Old is like living in a haunted house!

It's time for our anything goes challenge at Catch-The-Bug.  I am using one of the newer Halloween images called Halloween Silhouette Scene.  I love working with Silhouettes!  The inside of this card says- "Lots of noises,smells, bumps and lumps that you just can't explain!"  "Happy Birthday".  LOL, so true!  You do not need to use a bug image but we would love it if you did.

Pesky Critters!


When I saw these stamps from Eat Cake Graphics, I just had to have them. -------> this is what we were going through everyday at my house and this day the little guy was desperate because we had finally found a feeder for our seed that he can't get into so he was trying to suck the crumbs out of this one.  I was going through about $50 a month in bird food and now we are going through about $20, I have not seen a squirrel up on my feeders in a month, VICTORY!!!  The stamps are Squirrel (big) and Empty Bird Feeder.  I colored with copics and the paper is from My Minds Eye.
