My share for today is a Thank You Card that I designed using Stampin' Up's new Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, This Little Piggy Stamp Set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and Layering Squares Framelits Dies.

Let's take a look:

Stinkin' cute Little Piggy, eh!  I have such a passion for all things animals and SU's This Little Piggy Stamp Set caught my eye immediately in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!  Love, love and love these Little Piggy's!!!

My Card Base is Tranquil Tide Cardstock cut at 4" x 8" and scored and folded at 4" for a top folding Card.

My Card Front Panel is the Swirly Pattern in SU's new Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper cut at 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" and adhered to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I trimmed out a strip of the Polka Dot Pattern (the Reverse Side) to measure 3/4" x 3-1/2" and adhered it to my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue about 1" from the bottom of the Strip and to the bottom of the Swirly Pattern DSP.

Using SU's Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, I die cut 1 Large Scribble from Tranquil Tide Cardstock, 1 Large Scribble from Daffodil Delightful Cardstock (Large Daffodil Delight Scribble will go on the inside of my Card) and 1 Medium Scribble from Daffodil Delight Cardstock.

Using SU's new This Little Piggy Stamp Set, I stamped the Piggy in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.

Using my Aqua Painter Brush, I water colored the Piggy with Blushing Bride Ink.

Using my Stampin' Write Markers, I colored the Piggy's hooves with Basic Black, the Ground with Soft Suede and the Grass with Old Olive.

I trimmed out the Piggy to measure about 2" x 2-3/8".

I adhered the Swirly Scribbles with a little Mono Multi Purpose Glue in the centers of the Scribbles only as shown in the picture above.

I adhered my water colored Piggy with Stampin' Dimensionals as shown in the picture above.

For the inside of my Card:  Using SU's This Little Piggy Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.

Using SU's Layering Squares Framelits Dies, I die cut out the Sentiment with the Largest Scalloped Square.

I took the left over Large Daffodil Delight Scribble and adhered it over the corner of the Scalloped Square as shown in the picture above and then I adhered the Square to the inside of my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I thought about adding a bow, or a Glitter Dot or some kind of embellishment; but, I let the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper do all the work.

That's all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed my blog post and thanks for stopping by!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges, using them for their own card classes and (using them on their blogs as their own creations) - Please give credit where credit is due.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
