There She Goes Blog Hop!!!

Hi everyone!!!

Welcome to the first *There She Goes* Blog Hop!!! If you just get started....please go to the beginning and you should be back here in a few minutes!!!

Our super talented DT Member Holly has challenged us to create a card/project based on a *famous quote*. We all were assigned a *There She Goes* Stamp Set's as well!!! WOW - I had to get my gray cells going on this one - LOL!!!

This is the quote I have choosen......

*Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our
irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place*.
Mark Twain 1835-1910, American Humorist, Writer

and here is my card with the *You're so Punny* Set.


I thought this image and sentiment works perfectly with the quote!!! Every time I see this little piggy I have to giggle......!!!

I used Very Vanilla CS as my base. The DP is from Imaginisce. I also used Bashful Blue, Kraft and Pretty in Pink CS. I loved how my DT buddy Maki used the *piggy* on her card the other day!!! You can view it right here. Isn't it super cute???

The image was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa four times - trimmed and layered!!! I water colored the different layers with Close to Cocoa using the Aqua Painter. The cheeks are colored in Regal Rose. Of course there were tons of Stampin Dimensionals involved - LOL!!! The sentiment was inked in Rich Cocoa as well and punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. For the layeres I used the 1 3/8" and the 1 1/2" Circle Punch. At the end I added the Silver Brads.

Thanks for stopping by!!! Now you get to hop on over to the super talented Denise Marzec!!!
