Happy National Pig Day!

1 Mar
National Pig Day is all about according “the pig its rightful, though generally unrecognized, place as one of man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals.” WooHoo! Go, pigs! I LOVE pigs!

If you’ve stamped with me in “The Padded Room” — my home stamping studio — you know I’m a pig collector. Don’t ask me how it started. I don’t know. I think I saw a pig, commented on it, and next thing I know I got it as a gift. One pig begets another…and another…and another! I’ve got pig ornaments, a pig rug, pig yard ornaments, pig mugs, a pig bowl, pig earrings, a pig dog collar, pigs, pigs, and more pigs! But, not just any pig will do. If a pig is going to join my family, it has to speak to me! Meet some of my family members:

The cute little pig stamp, from Stampin’ Up!’s Button Buddies stamp set, spoke to me, too! I just had to have it! Because of my affinity for pigs, I decided to feature this precious little Button Buddy in the card I created for the shoebox swap I participated in at Stampin’ Up!’s Leadership Conference. Here it is:

What do you think? Isn’t this pig just the cutest thing? By the way, the designer paper is Twitterpated, as is the cute little Blushing Bride button, both available from the Occasions Mini Catalog. And that striped embossing folder that I used can be gotten FREE with a $50 purchase…but only until March 31, when Sale-A-Bration ends!
