Hogs and kisses

Happy Sunday all!  I'm afraid this is going to be a quick one cos I gotta go get ready to do some shopping and lunch with the parents.  I've got a card today using one of the  new Animal And Sentiment sets by the newly opened shop Pollycrafts...

 
 
Isn't he the cutest piggy EVER?!!  I love him!  And he was such a pleasure to colour in too although I was a little intimidated at first on how to approach it!  Here's a close up...
 
 
 
I matched him up with Lili of the Valley papers called Bonnets and Bowties (I LOVE their paper pads, only recently discovered!) and finished it off with some teeny tiny buttons!  I used to be on the Pollycrafts DT so I'm re-applying for the DT call - wish me luck!
 
Okay, I gotta go but I'll be back later to see you on my blog rounds - ttfn!

Hello Mary
Yes he is the cutest little Pig, and your colour work is amazing and Iam a little surprised to read that you were a little intimidated as you have such a talent with your colour sense, it always puts a smile on my face to see your pretty cards.
