Howdy pardners!

Considering state and county fairs were wrapping up around here this past weekend I figured it would be a good time to finally turn an idea I've had into a card. Sister Stamps has so many super cute stamps and all of the zodiac animals that they have been releasing this year are no exception. I've kinda been collecting the critters that can work as farm animals, like the Year of the Boar, because he looks more like a chubby little piglet to me. Originally I was going to pair him with an Anya stamp or something but when I spotted this October Afternoon paper with the Campbell Soup girlies on it I couldn't think of a better way to use some of it up as well. Plus it totally saved me on coloring time, LOL! ;)

Alrighty, have a good Friday everyone! We are expecting near record highs again today so it seems summer isn't ready to let go quite yet.
