HOGtoberfest and a challenge at Hambo

It's Hogtoberfest at one of my favorite stamp companies, Hambo Stamps. They are having their big sale right now which you can learn about at www.hambochallenges.blogspot.com as well as a link to their store. In the spirit of all things Ham(bo), this month's Hoedown challenge is "pigs." Not hard, when there are so many funny pig images in their shop. I used "Pig Artist" for my card:

 
I've been a Hambo Stamps fan since 2010. They always make me chuckle! Go check out the sale and their shop!

Paper-pieced Thanksgiving card

There are few things I enjoy more than paper-piecing with MFT's Pure Innocence stamps! The little tab is covering an ink oops but I actually like it. The heart stamp is from another set. I'll send this to one of my great-nieces, I'm sure!
