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)

Hi there. I saw your comment on my blog. I use a Canon EOS Digital Rebel.

I am yearning after a 40D though. I've had my Rebel for almost 4 years and I am ready to upgrade. :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for taking the time to comment.
