New Challenge Blog

I've very excited to see that one of my favorite online stores has started a challenge blog. 7 Kids College Fund is physically located just up the road from me in Phoenix. She carries a wonderful supply of stamps, papers, tools, embellishments, pencils and markers - you get the idea. Her service is terrific and shipping fast. Anyway - back to the challenge. There will be one every other Wednesday with chances to win prizes. This weeks theme is pink and polka-dots.

I immediately thought of using one of my brand new High Hopes rubber stamps - Piggie Bath (purchased from 7 Kids!). I stamped the little piggie twice and colored him with Prismas and OMS, I cut the full image out using my circle Nesties and then cut his head out to pop on with foam tape for added dimension. I also added Glossy Accents to the mud in an attempt to make it look more "watery". The sentiment is computer-generated. I doodled around the sentiment and added the faux stitching around the backing paper. All of the papers are Hobby Lobby open stock and the little flowers are a MS punch with mini-brads for centers. Thanks for taking a peek and if you're up for a challenge this is a fun one.

  7. Hi Kris, saw your post over at Bella Bug (Margie's place) and noticed we are both SS wives. We are retired 5 years now. Don't miss the service but miss the camaraderie of wives since my husband still travels in his new job.

    Thanks for the heads up on the new challenge blog! Love this little pig. Reminds me of the saying, "God made dirt, dirt don't hurt." ha.

  8. So cute! Thanks for joining us at 7kids challenge!

  9. Hi Kris! It's been awhile since I have visited your blog, somehow it was removed from my sidebar and I wasn't a follower but I fixed that so it doesn't happen again. I love this card and all the others I have missed. You are amazing!
