You're Ham-azing!

I have seen other people's ceations where they have completed several, like 4-5 challenges with one card or project.  I do good to get in one and sometimes I combine two, like this time!  How do they do it?  How do they keep them all straight? 

Anyway, I made this card for Splitcoast Stampers color challenge:  CC312: Misty Celery Rose! Marina Mist (blue), Certainly Celery (light green) and Rose Red.  I love these colors together!  Great challenge Julia!

And did you know that "March 1 is National Pig Day....who knew??? But let's celebrate it !!! This week's challenge is to make a card with a pig on it.........use at least 2 different patterned papers......and add some buttons! Any sketch."  I got this information and challenge over on Jitterbuggin' Challenge blog.  What a super fun challenge!!!

Here's what I came up with: 

Pig was cut at 3 1/2" from Create a Critter cartridge.

Card Base: SU Marina Mist 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  Rose Red 4" X 5 1/4",  Certainly Celery 4 1/8" X 5 3/8"
Other Cardstock / Paper:   Rose Red DP (2 styles), Certainly Celery DP, black
Ink: Marina Mist
Stamps:  SU Itty Bitty Bits
Accessories:  Computer for sentiment!, SU word window and modern label punches, Marina Mist ribbon 5/8" & 1/4", Cricut & Create a Critter cartridge, Cuttlebug & Checkerboard embossing folder, and SU embossing folder (dress), buttons, Cotton Candy Stickles on her cheeks to bring out her eyes! LOL!

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!


  1. Laurie, I know what you mean! I just entered my first challenge. I had a lot of trouble with every step, for no reason at all! I think I'll stick to ONE challenge at a time for a while, then graduate myself up slowly. I refuse to be too old to learn new tricks!

    Why do you think we love pigs so much? They are truly stinkin' cute! Love your card.

  2. This is so cute! I love the colors!

  3. LOL, I keep a notebook with current challenges I want to enter and then check off with ones my card or layout qualifies for.

    Your card is SOOOOO cute!! I love the patterned piggy :)

  4. Your pig is adorable. I love her mini skirt.

  5. What a "Ham" so cute! LOVE the colors, so springy!

  6. I always love your die-cutting creatures! This one is especially cute!
