Sow have you been?

Hi!
Well I didn't think I'd get to make a card today but I had the image already colored in and just had to. :-)

Image: Mo Manning
Colors: Prismacolors
Dps: DCWV
Bling: Recollection
Ribbon: Offray
Now you all are gonna think I have a thing with pigs cos Ive made so many cards featuring pigs lately but I really don't. Really! I just can't resist Mo Mannings artwork. I just love her cutie~ patootie animals!
Look at them! Aren't they shweeeeet?:-)


A close up of the sntiment made by my own sick mind. Hey! I heard that groan...

Yes, I know, I know, three flowers is a bit much but I had to make it fit the recipe challenge. They can come off later!

And some pics of my card in the making.....



Not too bad really, is it.....

I would like to enter this in a few challenges:

Color Throwdown: pink, green, yellow and turquiose
(ok, they were fancier~shmancier names than that but WE all know what they really are!)
Digital Tuesday: dots and stripes
One AStitch At ATime: blooms buttons and bling
Cute Card Thursday: Play on words (Sow have you been...get it, get it??)
 I know,  I'm too funny! (smack!)
You know I always seem to be in a really silly mood when I have a nasty headache, what's up with that?......

This little piggy had a massage,
This little piggy stayed in bed,
This little piggy had cup-ov-tea,
This little piggy... we all are waiting, Dorcas! <3
And this little piggy went...
"Wee wee wee" all the way to the huge craft shop in North Carolina...

Hugs!

Hi Dorcas. Beautifully coloured as always, and such lovely colours. Hope your headache has gone. Not feeling on top of the world myself....even had to come off the PC and stop crafting yesterday....hoping for a better day today.

The reason I deleted my first post was that I was talking about North California, and it was a bit too far ;)

Now I am explaining it and it means it was unnecessary to delete it because it is there anyway. :P Would be easier just to NOT TOUCH THE DELETE BUTTON!

:D

Micki said...

Very cute card. The colors are lovely. Hugs. dj

Annika said...

Yes, I get it, lol. You and my hubby could have hours of fun!! :D
Love Mo's stuff as well - this one looks like a scene from a story, either a very beginning or happy end.
And your question about the flowers - those were actually not punched, they're from Prima. Called Sprites I think, I got them as a RAK from a lovely friend of mine. But if you're looking for a way to make embossed flowers then Mariannes Creatables have some lovely dies, cute shapes and friendly prices too!!
Hugs
Annika

Lindylou said...

thanks for letting me know I'd not done my linky thing right. I'd done everything except press entre....and I mean everything because I entered it into the DT call by mistake at first lol. I'm having one of those 'I'd have better stayed in bed days'.
