Hogs & Kisses and my exciting news!

Hello everyone :o)

As some of you might already have spotted, I was very lucky to make it onto Paula's DT at Pollycraft... eeeek, so exciting!  So I had to celebrate with a card of course... and here's my annual 'pig-themed' creation that my mum always requests for one of her friends (who loves pigs, obviously!).

Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Craftwork Cards
Digi stamp - Hogs & Kisses - Pollycraft
Colouring - copics & prisma pencils
White highlights - copic opaque white
Papers - Dovecraft Garden Party (out of stock) - MCH
Sentiment stamp - LOTV
Butterflies - Kars punches
Memory Box Simple Banner die
Pearls from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Celebrate the Occasion - fluttering by (butterflies)

We've been to see Epic with the boys today - it's the school hols, hubby's off work for the week too, so of course it's done nothing but pour with rain lol... It was quite a good film, the kids enjoyed it, but I was more excited by the clips at the beginning - so many sequels coming out this year, and I can't wait for the Monster's Inc one... I love kids films!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)
