Hogs & Kisses!

 

Today Mabelle is adding some new, adorable images to the Whimsy & Stars Studio shop.   Stop by the Whimsy & Stars Studio blog to get a look at all the new releases.   Mabelle is also giving away blog candy.    She will be selecting 5 random winners from those who leave a comment on today’s post at the Whimsy & Stars Studio blog.   The winners will win one digi of their choice from the new releases.  Winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 24th.

 

 

As soon as I saw  Loo Loo Ballerina, I had to make a card with her.    She looks so sweet and shy.   As I mentioned previously, my daughter loves pigs.   Her favorite stuffed animal is a pig who has been with her most of her life.  (You can see a prior post about Piggy Boy HERE.)   I’m stashing this card away to give to her on a day she needs a little boost or maybe to congratulate her on awards day at her school.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…
