Celebrate your birthday...

Hello, hello!

Are you ready for day two of the January Greeting Farm release previews? Today we are going hog wild with the Hogs mini stamp set. This little set includes four of the cutest pigs you ever did see, a sentiment and some tiny hearts. Now, while the set may be small, as I started playing with these cuties I quickly realized that they mix and match beautifully with a number of other Greeting Farm clear sets making for numerous whimsical scenes. In fact I've made two other cards showcasing this and I will be sharing them here in a few days. But for now I wanted to show how great these piggies are all on their own. For this sweet birthday card I stamped the sitting pig in desert sand then masked her off before stamping the pig with the balloon in desert sand too, this gives the illusion that he is standing behind her just a bit. Then I did some no-line coloring on them and colored in a simple pastoral scene as well. The result is a bright and cheery birthday vignette that is sure to make someone smile. :) 

There is plenty more Hogs inspiration to be had over on the TGF blog and I promise you won't want to miss the fun and fabulous creations my fellow Farmers have made.
