Happy National Ice Cream Day

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by over 90 percent of the nation's population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with "appropriate ceremonies and activities." Today is that day so...


In honor of this absolutely F-U-N day, I decided to create a fun card using Hambo Stamp's Ice Cream Man and a shaker element. Now if I can just put it down and stop shaking it...

Happy Earth Day from the Pigpen!!

Happy Earth Day!!

It's been forty-five years since the first Earth Day, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems. Earth Day is honored around the world on April 22. So we are celebrating here at the Pigpen too!

I thought it would be fun to do an Earth Day card today using two of Hambo's digis - Trees and Caterpillar.

I hope you have a great one; don't forget to do something for the Earth today :)

Hi there Hambo friends, thought I would share this card that I made that is so quick to make....and you will need this when you have forgotten that special persons birthday!!! but hopefully you will win them over with a bit of snark or humour, these DIRT PILE and OH CRAP!! rubber stamps from Hambo Stamps, will do just the trick to put a smile on the card recipients face, Hambo Stamps always have an element of fun to them.
I started off with a drop of distress ink and water on my craft mat, smooshed the cardstock into it, added a few splatters, while that was drying I stamped the dirt pile image then coloured it and cut it out, layered the background onto some brown cardstock and stuck to my card base, glued some drywall tape, and the image on, and then added the sentiment. super easy and quick!!!
