Okay you knitters… do you have a guinea pig? A friend with a guinea pig? Well if you ever need a gift idea, here’s my fav: a hand-knit guinea pig sweater. Our guinea pig, Tiger, doesn’t hate his sweater, so I’d say that’s a resounding ‘thumbs-up’ from him! Of course he doesn’t really have thumbs…
But he happily wears his sweater when we take him out for cuddling 🙂 Here’s the shot of him that I put on an e-card with the Simply Sent app from Stampin’ Up!
And if you don’t have a guinea pig (or know one) then at least you can appreciate the fun Stampin’ Up! style e-card. Don’t you love how the buttons and DSP match the ones you can get for My Digital Studio?
Head to the app store on your phone or iPad to pick up this simple and fun app! Simply Sent app is a super-simple adaptation of My Digital Studio… nothing like the real thing, but enough fun to make for some sweet e-cards in a flash.
Did you see my Simply Sent e-card for Christmas? (check it out now)
Curious about the sweater? I first saw a similar one on Pinterest, and tracked it to this site. I changed up the pattern for a different gauge yarn and needle size, and added some fun cables to fancy it up. If I get any requests for the pattern, I’ll be happy to add my version here for you. Just leave me a comment so I’ll know!
Oh, and if you’re a knitter or you crochet, don’t miss out on this sweet knitting stamp set – Hand Knit (see it online)! It’s great for creating little notes for your yarn-loving compadres, or for making tags for hand-made gifts that you create. You can order the stamp set through my website online here. Let me know if you have questions!
