Porridge...

Every year my mum asks me for a card for a friend of hers who's mad about pigs... it gets harder each year to come up with something different!  So I decided to treat myself to this lovely Porridge stamp by Sugar Nellie - isn't he fab?




I've coloured Porridge with promarkers, flexmarkers and prisma pencils, adding some little Viva pearl dots around him.  The papers are from my stash, I'm not sure what make they are, the blue cardstock is core'dinations.  The corner die is Whimsy, the flower is the Cherry Blossom die by Memory Box and the leaves are the Poppystamps Loralei Leaf die (cut into pieces).  The sentiment tab is MFT, sentiment stamp is LOTV, blue gems and pearl from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I've had a nice relaxing weekend, visiting family and catching up with crafty stuff.  We spent the afternoon/ evening at my mum's today and it's been such a lovely mild evening Dex decided to strip off and run around mum's garden with everything on show lol... hope he didn't scare any of their neighbours!  Hope you've all had a lovely day too :o)

Porridge is a more realistic pig than many I've seen out there but still so cute! I love the coloring. The gingham works so well.
