Papertake Weekly and Double Hogs & Kisses!

So, is everyone enjoying their long weekend?! I'm having a good one so far. Managed to craft all day Friday and then went to visit Ali's family yesterday. The only down side is that his Mum is having a clear out and so we ended up filling the car full of stuff from when he was little. The spare room is now fit to bursting. Ebay, here we come....!

Anyway, have you seen Dawny's great sketch over on Papertake this week? Its a goodun and one I will no doubt use again. Apologies for the blurry picture though, all of my doodling and gems meant that the final thing came out a little funky!
What a cutie pie image, I love it! This is another High Hopes stamp, courtesy of Tracy at Dies to Dies For. Also, because she's got so many stamps from the top stamp companies, never one to rest on her laurels, she is now targetting her paper supplies! You should totally check out the shop as she has some gorgeous Daisy Bucket papers in, including these classy black and white ones.

Goodie List........
Stamps: High Hopes - Pickles Balloon Ride
Paper: Daisy Bucket (Cocktail Party), Bazzill CS (Hurricane) - available from Dies to Dies For.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Adhesive gems, computer generated sentiment, doodling.

My regular readers will know that I don't tend to post 2 cards in one post, I try to spread my offerings over a day or two. However, this next card doesn't really warrent a post on its own because it just goes to highlight how STUPID I am! I guess this card is the epitome of what a left-handed blonde stands for....

Yep, that's right. It's a rabbit. Yep, that's right. The sentiment is HOGS and Kisses. You know, hogs as in pig? Doesn't really work quite as well for a rabbit does it?! And do you know the really stupid thing? I didn't actually realise it was wrong until I used the same sentiment for the pig card 5 days later! D'oh!

Goodie List........
Stamps: CC Designs - Kisses & Hugs
Digi Paper: Sweet Shoppe Designs - Manda Bean (Even Sweeter Stuff).
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Nestabilities and Stickles.

Right, I think that is quite enough waffle from me! Enjoy whats left of the weekend peeps!

That pig is very cute and beautifully coloured, really nice work with the sketch. Your hogs and kisses made me smile why don't you just cover it up with something else?

Jackie said...

Love them both. I did have a snigger about the wrong sentiment :o)You could stamp a suitable sentiment and put over the hogs one :o)

Two lovely cards Stacey. You've given me a giggle tonight with your blunder, glad to know that I'm not the only one who does things like that! Good advice given by previous commenters, cover it up with another sentiment or some kind of embellishment and you'd never know. Happy Easter. Big hugs, Lainy x
