Hogs and Kisses, Valentine!!

Seriously, I LOVE volunteering at my children's school, but sometimes I feel like I am way more busy than I would be if I had a paying job.  The funny thing is that I have projects for school right now that involve being crafty, but it just doesn't feel the same.  I need some free craft time; not to mention I have bow orders waiting to be completed.  The problem is that there is only one table I work off of in my craft room since it also doubles as a guest room, which means one project must be completed before the next one is started. 
Anyway, back to the reason we are here!! 
Here is actually one project that I did get a chance to complete.

I know the picture is horrible!!  My phone did this major update and now my picture settings are completely out of sorts.  Not really sure where the changes were made at, so I have not been able to correct the issue yet.  

Anyway, this card is my Design Team Card for Melonheadz Friends' Valentine Challenge.  This cute piggy was an old digistamp from Nikki over at Melonheadz that I have had for a very long time.  I was just looking or something other than the traditional heart/lovey Valentine.  Plus, I am so cheesy!  I love to come up with play on words.  Of course, this saying was not my own, but it works nonetheless!  The other bonus is that, again, all the supplies came from my scrap drawers.  For example, I know the heart vellum is at least six years old because it is left over from when I made wedding announcements for my brother and his wife.  Bonus, I printed the saying out on my new printer!!  It arrived Wednesday, this past week, and Sean hooked it right up for me!  Let me just say, I am loving this whole wireless printing feature!!  It is not even that I am printing from places all over the house; no, I am sitting right next to my printer.  I just get overwhelmed with clutter (especially in my craft space), so one less wire hanging down, is FABULOUS!!  

Okay, enough rambling for today.  I promise I am going to try to post some of the 100th Day of School projects I completed to take with us to school today.  
Plus, I have a few more things waiting to make an appearance here on my blog!  
Thanks for stopping in :)

Today, I am going to share the card I made for the new challenge over at Melonheaz Friends.
I hope you will pop over and join the challenge and look at the great things the newest members of the design team came up with.

I am actually very impressed with the way this turned out because everything about this card was found in my stash.  After eight or so years, my printer decided to stop working.  Luckily, I had printed this cute little guy at some point as to not waste space while printing other digistamps.  All the supplies were found in my scraps pile; all out of the black drawer at that.   Of course, since the printer has stopped, I turned to my sticker stash for a sentiment to add this card.

Okay, now I am off to spend some time researching new printers!!!  

Thanks for stopping by :0)
