Mystery Image Swap

Yesterday was the day our mystery image cards were due and believe it or not,.....mine made it there on time....SHOCK..lol I have been a bit behind most of the summer so was glad I wasn't sending PRIORITY last minute. Samantha sent us this cute SU pig image from a retired set cured yet?. When it was actually out I had thought about buying it but never got around to it so it was so much fun to receive the images to work with.

Here is my card:


I found the technique to make the background on Gina's stamp tv and tried it out for this card..I like how it kinda looks like a quilt. I started to color with copics but changed over to water color color crayons as the ink started to run a bit. I made my little pigs cheeks really pink just like she had a fever....

Anyway, thanks Samantha for the fun image...

Thanks also for stopping by....

Until next time...
Hugs,
Carol
