A Sketch & A Birthday

Tomorrow is my friend Jill's XXth Birthday (see Jill, I was kind and didn't broadcast it to the world!). I decided to make her card using today's sketch over on Splitcoast. I adore this pig, actually I love all pigs (ask any of my family) but this one's face and squinty eyes is a firm fave of mine. Isn't he cute?!!! Well, Jill and I are always laughing about me being a greedy pig (ask her about Hungry Howie's Pizza ....) so I thought she'd get a kick out of getting him as her birthday card! I better get it into the post ....

I popped his ears and nose up to give him some dimension and I think he turned out quite well. I added some grass around his feet and followed the sketch. The birthday sentiment is computer generated.


Stamps : Pig ~ Inky Antics, Grass ~ Rubber Stamp Tapestry
Ink : Rich Cocoa (Memento), River Rock & Mellow Moss (SU)
Cardstock : WW, Choc Chip, Certainly Celery DSP, Cutie Pie DSP (retired)
Accessories : Gamsol & Prismacolour Pencils, Dimensionals, SU Punches

OK, I couldn't resist, look at this piglet Sarah and I found at Hollow Trees Farm Shop in Suffolk, England. I wanted to kidnap him and bring him home to America ... do you think customs would have noticed???? Tee Hee!
