Are You CURED Yet?

I checked my mail three times today waiting on packages from My Favorite Things and Altenew.  I decided to reward myself for the three-book contract I just signed with some stamps and supplies I've been coveting eyeing for a long time.


This card uses The Whole Herd from MFT on a Retro Sketches challenge, but I was too late to link up, so I'm adding it to Curtain Call's Simplicity challenge.  The paper is long-gone from CTMH, and the Baker's Twine was purchased at Hobby Lobby.

The stitched edge is actually a rectangular die from MFT.  I just turned it at an angle and only cut a portion.  The pig was cut using the coordinating die for the stamp set and colored with Copic markers R0000, R00, and E21. 

I get a giggle out of this every time I look at this card...especially since I'm using it for my son-in-law who is celebrating his birthday and recovery from surgery.  I can't think of another sentiment that covers both those occasions for a man who loves his bacon!

Until next time,
Becca
