A couple Thank you cards

Hi there, just thought I'd share the two Thank you cards I whipped up for my daughter to give the people who bought her fair hog last night. Yes it was a VERY LONG day/night yesterday. My two oldest raised hogs for the fair and last night was sale night. It makes for a long evening because all the steers get auctioned off first then all the hogs, then we ride rides and stuff, sooo needless to say we didn't get home until about 1 am! yikes! that is waaaayy past our bedtime. So today is a lay around and catch up on sleep day. Samantha slept until 10:30! Hannah till 1:00. I'm thinking the hubby and I may go out to eat this evening, because I sure don't feel like cooking :0)  So onto the cards... Hannah had two people buy her hog so I had to make two similar but different cards. We bought Austin's hog, it was his last year since he will be graduating from HS this year and no more showing fair stuff   :(   We went together with one of the hubby's sisters and bought it for him. I still have to make a card for Austin to give to his Aunt Kathy yet but here is the ones for Hannah to give.....



Different but still similar!   Hannah shows FFA so I try to always stay within their colors. Austin is 4-H so his will be in those colors.
**I used Buggaboo Digi Images-the pigs, Stampin' Up! card stock and stamps, and various other embellishments and ink**
Here are a couple pics of them in the ring last night, I was slacking and didn't get my big lens put on in time to get better close up pics, that's what I get for talking  ;0)
 
 

See, not the greatest pics-- I know bad mom-- Austin didn't have a 4-H jacket because his was too little and we were not gonna special order another since it was his last year. Well everything went good and they got to have some fun on the midway to, so it was a nice, chilly, night.
Well that's all for today, have a great rest of the weekend!
~~Blessings Jen~~

Baby Shower Card

Hi, Happy Wednesday! Well I just thought I would pop in to show a cute card I made for a relative having a baby girl next month. This card was made using Stampin' Up! products, Stamping Bella image, and various other embellishments and papers :0)  First let me say I Love Stampin' Up! and the amazing products they have. I also just adore the Stamping Bella products also! I mean really they have super adorable images! The one I used is the Baby Carriage Bella. They come trimmed and ready to attach to a clear block and stamp away! Love that!  ok well I used Stampin' Up! cardstock and the patterned paper was Doodle Bug { my all time FAV. for patterned paper}. Inks were Stampin' Up! except for the brown hair was a Copic marker -I now have 5 of them so far- woohoo!! I'm working on collecting them little by little   :0)  ok so here is the card......


 
 























I am loving how it turned out! I really like the colors a lot  :0)  
 So if you like paper crafting and have not tried Stampin' Up! or Stamping Bella you should check them out. Well that's all for today, have a great night!
