Hey crafters! I hope you all had a great start to your week. :) Earlier this weekend I was able to get a TON of crafting done, which was super nice. The past few days, though, I've had an ongoing stomachache, and have just been taking it easy and getting some DT work done. It started to feel better tonight, so I think I'll be back into the swing of things tomorrow. :)

One of the cards I got done this weekend was a graduation card for the current sketch challenge going on over at the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog! I always love playing along in their challenges - they're so inspiring!

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on it:

How ca-ute is this little graduation piggy?! He's from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge and I of course gave him a face using the PK-754 Critter Faces stamp set. Couldn't resist! And because he's so smart I couldn't help but give him a tassel and honor's stole using some twine from The Twinery. :)

He even slides back and forth! I was intimidated by the idea of a slider card when I first saw it, but it is SO easy to put together and SO much fun! The entire template for the card was cut using the slider card template from the Silhouette store. 

Papers on this card are from the Alphabet Junction collection by Carta Bella. Such a cute collection! I added some pink and orange CANDi to match the dots on the sketch, and the Celebrate stamp is from Close to My Heart. 

I had such a fun time making this card during my weekend "crafting spree" and can't wait to share more of what I made with you later this week and into next week! Have a wonderful day. :)
