Mixing Up Hello Bluebirds Pig Stamp Sets with Nicky

Hello everybody and happy new year!  I’m first up on the blog this year and mixing up my Hello Bluebird stamp sets.   The pig stamp sets have always been amongst my very favourites, they are scaled to work together seamlessly and so I created this colourful birthday card.

The sky portion was adhered directly...
