Hogs 'n' Kisses

Happy Monday to you all! I hope everyone had a fabulous summery weekend like my family did! I'm playing along this week with CAS(E) this Sketch #86  and I'm using some new stamps that I recently bought from Simon Says Stamp. The Birthday Farm Animals set is ridiculously adorable and I knew I want to use it for this card. 

I coloured and cut out (reeeeally wishing I'd bought the matching die cuts for this set!!) the piggy and popped him up on a die cut label that I inked neon yellow.  His (or her!) balloon is paper pieced.  Stamp the matching sentiment and voila! Card done! :) 

I mentioned we had a fabulous summery weekend...Friday night I met up with my BFF and university roommate from waaaaaay back for supper.  We only see each other every 2 years or so and I loved getting to seeing her and her children. Sunday was happy family time along the big river. Here's a picture of me on the St. Clair River which borders both Michigan and Ontario. I went to my aunt and uncle's house to watch some power boat races with my kiddos and it was a lovely day. 

Thanks for popping in today! I don't post family stuff often because we really are quite a boring crowd. :) I don't want you yawning through it all haha.
