Hey Hot Stuff!

Good morning!  I've got a fun card to share today; I used a card kit sent to me by my Secret Sister and a stamp that has been sitting on my table just waiting to get inky!  This little piggy is one of my favorite Penny Black images...she has the right combo of cute and sassy!

I used the sketch from the Stamptacular Sunday soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to give it a try!  I like that I was able to use 3 of the DPs from the kit.  The piggy is water colored with's been awhile...I'm a bit rusty....  I've embellished with brads and a diecut flower.

Image: Penny Black
Sentiment: Kraftin' Kimmie "Summer Sentiments"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Blushing Bride and Regal Rose, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, and Summer Sun
Embellies: Spare Parts Brads, Stickles
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone. MFT "Hibiscus" Die-namics Die, The Paper Studio Sitcky Doos

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Tuesday Throwdown: Hot Colors
Clear It Out Challenge: Use something yellow from old supplies (I've had the brads for years!)
Incy Wincy Designs: Summertime
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge: Sweet Summer Days
Make It Monday: Anything Goes
Truly Madly Crafty Challenges: Animals

I want to give you a peek at the kit.  Such a wonderful assortment of goodies!  I need to dig in to those embellies...for right now I am just admiring them...I need to come up with something extra special so I can use them!  Thank you so much, Secret Sis!

Thanks for stopping by!
