Smile Piggies.. You can still win the blog candy!

Happy Monday - my Crop on Saturday was a lot of fun... late night, but lots of laughs and I got lots done! Yesterday was an odd day - during the night we got new neighbors, they seem like they are really nice, and will be great neighbors, but her horses well from by back porch across my mini donkey pens look like they are 30 or 40 feet tall! And they jumped our fence in the night Saturday - so yesterday morning was an early start and well getting to know our neighbors! They are really big horses - 17.2 hands tall average of the 11 of them. (and no I am not for sure how tall that really is.. LOL) But lets just say their backs stand way over my head! And pastured next to my mini's they are giants! Gorgeous animals.. show horses.

How about a card today? And a reminder it is not to late to sign up for the Stampavie Newsletter! And by doing that you can get in on some fantastic candy... see last Thursday's post HERE for the details and the direct link to the newsletter sign up is HERE.

My card is from Stampavie Rachelle Anne Miller - Happy Piggies and they just make me smile! I colored them with my Copics then cut them out with my Nestibilities Circle, matted with a white scalloped circle.

The card is some yummy new papers I just got from Yellow Bicycle - Baby Girl Safari line. I used my Martha Stewart border punch top and bottom and sewed everything down with a pretty light pink opalescent thread. The sentiment is a Heidi Grace epoxy sticker - I then doodled the edges of the Piggies image.
My flowers.. oh I love these things I do hope my MIL is going to make me some more! :0) And for those that have asked she is working on getting me the pattern. The leaves are Martha Stewart frond punch, and the center is a sugared brad from Creative Inspirations.

And don't be too shocked... but I decorated the inside of this one too! My scraps were laying there on my desk so I just put them together and attached them to the inside.

Hope you have a great Monday... me... working this morning - then grocery store and hopefully they eye doctor this afternoon... I am out of contacts and they won't sell me anymore until I have my eyes checked! I hate that, but oh well one of those "rules" you can't fight - LOL
HUGS and-

Beautiful card Michelle. Just so you know a horses height is in hands from their hoof to their whithers, so the neck and head don't count and each hand is 4 inches, so these horses are 58 inches tall.

Hi Michelle, oh this is so sweet, I love the piggies!! Great flowers too, hope your MIL manages to get the pattern as I'd love to try crotchet some. Glad you had a good time with your friends. I hope the donkeys were'nt frightened of those big horses, and the expectant mums are ok. Hugs Dawn Marie.xx
