I did it!

On Friday I publicly pledged to finish one of the three projects I had scattered about and half done. The one I managed to complete was my Calaca piggy bank. She's very sparkly and divine:


And I made this card based on the sketch Angie provided for Day 2 of Card a Day. I've been shy about stamping and coloring as I'm still so shaky. I decided I'd rather do something a little simpler and be less of a perfectionist than not make anything at all.



Stamps: My very favorite Bombshell of all ~ Retro Cowgirls and the Saddle Up is by Unity Stamp Company but I think it has been discontinued.

P.S. Amy at the Gauche Alchemy blog had some very sweet things to say about my card. Thanks, Amy!

Wow, that piggy bank is awesome! I love all the glitter and the flower eyes. Where did you find the blank bank? I might like to try one.

Your card is adorable, too. Love those cowgirls.
