I have had this idea for a card in my head for several weeks.  Actually one of the reasons that I purchased the Santa’s Suit set was to make this card.  I needed Santa’s hat.  Hopefully you will not laugh at my card too much!  Or if you do, then laugh in a good way…

This Little Piggy, 143922

 

Isn’t he just adorable?  I could not resist making a Santa Pig for Christmas.  It took three stamp sets to get there, but I think it was worth the combinations.

My colors came from the different elements in the pig.  I used Pear Pizzaz for the grass and Real Red for the Santa Hat.  I was disapointed when the hat smeared a little when I added the Wink of Stella.  But since pigs tend to get a little dirty I thought it was appropriate.

TIP:  The pig stamp has a sentiment under the pig.  I used washi tape to cover the sentiment while i was inking the stamp.  Then I just pulled off the tape before stamping.  Presto! no sentiment.

I hope you at least had a smile this morning from my Santa Pig!  Thank you for visiting today.  I love to read your comments so please let me know what you think.  I hope you have a wonderful day!
