This Little Piggy GDP093

THIS was truly a challenging card for me. I knew I wanted to use This Little Piggy (available in wood or clear mount), so I figured I'd head over to the Global Design Project challenge blog for inspiration. Oh, goodie, a color challenge! I love color challenges almost as much as sketch challenges!!! And the colors, Berry Burst, Pool Party, and Lemon Lime Twist are lovely hard could it be?

Let me tell you, it was plenty hard! Maybe if I had chosen a nice floral stamp set it would have come together a bit more easily. But noOOoo, I had to choose piggies. I thought it would be fun to make a "just because" card for my son, who can make pigs fly.

You think I'm kidding? Check out the YouTube video below. He had a rubber pig (I think it was a dog squeaky toy) that he stuck on his quad copter drone. The surprised look on the pig is hysterical!

Anyhoooo, I made the clouds on the Pool Party cardstock using one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and Embossing Paste. The pig was stamped on Shimmery White (for ease of coloring), and the greeting was made with the Labeler Alphabet set. Love that set - I can make any greeting I want!

  1. I wondered if there wasn't going to be a post today because you might be gardening since the rain has stopped. Now I know it just takes extra time to make pigs fly! Lol. The pig is adorable.


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
