Hog Wild

DH moved some pigs around today. I was hoping it didn't mean we had some sows (mamas) ready to farrow (give birth). He will be out of town tomorrow on business and then all next week. I firmly believe the sows know when he is gone thus making me play mid-wife. He claims none are ready to go. I'll believe him when he gets back and there are no new babies.

As I'm thinking pigs, I made a card using My Favorite Things July sketch.

Well, I started it yesterday, but the sentiment worked today! ;) In February I ordered the VIP kit which was Country Charm. It had the PI Cowboy stamp and an additional set of sentiments which included the 'Go Hog Wild.' Perfect for someone who raises pigs, for fun. The kit also included the Country Charms Die-namics.

I used the Cosmo Cricket Wanted to put together his duds. I couldn't have asked for better paper. Cutting all those pieces was interesting. DH wondered why I didn't get to bed until 2 this morning. He doesn't understand the need to stamp, cut and glue. He (as in the cowboy, not DH) is colored with Copics, E00, E21, E50 and R21.

The fence is Die-namics Woodgrain Fence. It was white when I cut it out. However, this is an old fence thus it has Distress Ink Weathered Wood on it.

The hat banner is one of the Country Charms dies. I used Fired Brick and Walnut Stain Distress Markers on them and Distress Ink Vintage Photo around the edges. The sentiment was done with Memento Tuxedo Black. The twine is from My Mind's Eye.

Now I have to go mow the lawn. I'd rather stay in here and play. Added: I mowed the lawn and then came in and posted this. Why I didn't post before I mowed, I have no idea.
