This Little Piggy Says Happy Birthday

Happy Thursday! It's time for a Team O challenge at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge! We have a fun board with some of my favorite elements - coloring and critters!


I chose the right column down and used this cut pig to create a fun birthday scene. I said a few weeks ago that I was cleaning out my stash. This adorable stamp set is on the retiring list at Stampin' Up! and somehow I haven't used it before. So before it's gone I thought I'd give it a whirl. My favorite image in the set is the piggy with flowers, but I needed a birthday card and the Vespa riding pig did it for me!

I chose my colors based on the shaker bits I have flying from the Vespa. I had thought about different colors but when I found these retired bits in my stash I thought they would be perfect. Shaker bits are things that I buy and always have leftovers; you just don't use that many in a card. These were not difficult to adhere - I sprinkled some on my desk, added tiny dots of glue to the card front and used my Take Your Pick tool to pick up the pieces and put them down. Super easy and fast.

This retiring stamp set and the matching dies are on sale right now through the end of the month at a real bargain price. Get yours today!
