Thanks a Million!!!

Hello and Happy Saturday Everyone!
I bet you're all surprised to see me here!
Well.... Me tooooo! I'm actually having a
really productive weekend! I've made (2)
2 page layouts (traditional way) and (2)
2 page Layouts Digitally! I made a nice
Home decor project and, and... I got a card
done for 2 Challenges! :o) That's what I'm
posting today! The Challenge over at
is to make a Card with a PIG on it! Yes
you heard that right! Apparently March 1st
was National Pig Day! Who Knew? Not me!
Anyway... Since it was National Pig Day they
decided to do a Challenge with a Pig on it AND
use at least 2 different pattern papers AND add
some buttons! And the Challenge over at
Is to make a project with (2) pieces of Card stock
(2) Designer papers
(2) Embellishments
This is just the bare minimum, you can use more
of those things as well and make a cricut cut of course! :o)
Which I believe I have covered!
Well Let's see what I came up with....

Card stock, Ink, Ribbon - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - AMM
Cartridges - Playtime Lite (Piggy Bank)
Cut @ 3" (2x's)
Cuttin' Up (Money)
Cut @ 1" (3x's)

I used Peachy Keen Stamps for the face
of the money.  Stamp is from the Critter
Faces Set (Small) PK-753
The Buttons are from Papertrey Ink

I used Dimensionals to pop up the Piggy Banks
Ears, Snout, Body

I also wanted to show you how I brought the
cuts to the inside with the Saying....
The Sentiment on the outside (Thanks a Million) and the saying
on the inside (They broke the bank when they made you)
 was done with my Word Program....

Just a close up of the stamped faces on the money....
I thought it came out cute!

Well That's my card for the Challenges over at and
Soooo, I hope you all join the fun too! I believe
they end on Tuesday, March 9th. Can't wait to see what
you create! Thanks for stopping by... Enjoy the
rest of your Weekend! :o)
