PRETTY IN PIGGY................................LOL!

Evening all!

Hope you are all well tonight and how many sleeps to Xmas! Well I'm trying to get into the Xmas spirit lol, but when your working up to Xmas eve and trying to get the last bits together it's not much fun :o(
Anyway, it will be all over in a couple of days and hopefully things will get back to normal and we can relax and enjoy the festive holiday's :o)

Right on to tonight's card, and it's something a little different from my normal, cutesy images. I have used a stamp I have never inked up (naughty girl!!) and it''s from Papermania "Honey & Hugs" range. I have teamed it up with some fab papers from Craftwork cards and some punched flowers, another very simples card that's just right up my street!

This little piggy is going into the following challenges :-
Create 4 Fun # 51 ~ Fab Sketch
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 114 ~ In the Farmyard!

Piggy ~ Honey & Hugs

Excuse me Vicky .. .. you do need to remember that you were on holiday last week!! LOL!!!

You sound like my Mum .. .. she always says "never mind - this time next week it will all be over!!". The thing that makes us laugh though is that us kids to everything to make sure she has nothing to do .. .. we share her between us in whatever we are doing. We think that just participating now just wears her out .. but she is 80! Wish she didn't have to get old!!

Loving your make. Great papers and colour choices and such a cute little pig.

Love Jules xx

Love the pink, and the little flowers on the pig are adorable!!!....Love the polka dots, and the touch of yellow you have added with the ribbon!
