Hogs and Kisses
Thank you, thank you, thank you! That is what each of these cards said, that I made for our 4-H Awards Day. I was asked to make some stamped cards for the kids to give out to local businesses who had helped support them this year at the fair.
So I decided on a "fair" theme...fat pigs! I have had this big piggy stamp for at least 12 years, so it was kind of fun to pull him out and put him to work after a long time gathering dust. The girls and I stamped, colored, cut out, and pasted LOTS of pigs! I used pop-dots to make him a bit more 3-D. Then I added some raffia and buttons, and fun "farmy" patterned paper.
We made over 20 of these funny fellas. Here are just a few of them!
This one was my favorite, so I kept him! (maybe someday, if you are very very good, you will get him in the mail...hee hee)
I am a busy mom of three, married to one awesome handsome pilot. We own our own business, so that keeps us busy, along with homeschooling, horse club, training agility, 4-H, riding lessons, Homebuilders, homeschool club, and lots of sports!
We have fun and follow the sun! We love to fly all around our great state and find adventure as we go. When we are home, we get out on the horses as much as possible..we all love to ride!
