Paper Piecings by Nikki DT Offering - Your Sty Or Mine??

Good Monday, Crafties.  Mama LoveBug aka DT Pam on the Paper Piecings by Nikki DT is sharing a card with you today using a new pattern collection which is all about pigs, hot dogs, and burgers!  This set is just too oinkin' awesome!  The pattern is called Piggin' Out and can be found at the PPbN online store at

All summer long my husband and I have enjoyed grilling out - have you a favorite grill-out treat??  While I must confess to being partial to steaks, we do enjoy the burgers and hot dogs too!!

My first task was to come up with a few original sentiments - Your Sty or Mine and Hot Dog: Let's Pig Out Together - I actually added the word Forever to this card because I made it for our anniversary, that pops up at the end of this month.

After fussy cutting the pigs and making a pocket card for a base and insert, I added gel pen highlights and used my new 3 Girl Jam Bow Maker and crinkly ribbon for the top pig (that's me).  I am bow-challenged but this very inexpensive but delightful bow maker helped me to produce a desired bow using this dynamite ribbon.  I can't praise either product enough!! I am (excuse the pun) in crafty-hog heaven!! I added a few embellies like buttons and twine and voila..........Your Sty Or Mine

Here's a picture of the complete file so you can see all the possibilities for your crafting imagination.

AND if you're of a mind to enjoy a papercrafting version of Survivor, hop on your imaginary yacht (hey might as well dream big time) and sloop over to Paper Craft Island at for a chance to join the stranded Dirty Dozen as they display their talent to become Season 1's Paper Craft Island winner.

Hope you enjoyed the card and today's message - remember no matter how you piece your paper, have fun with it!! Cyberhugs............Mama LoveBug

This card makes me giggle! Perfect for you guys since dad became Bobby Flay ;) Glad you are enjoying your 3GJ goodies! I never thought I'd see you happy about ribbon and bows since I know how frustrating it is when you are bow challenged! ;) SO YAY!!!!
