Some 'Terrific' Pig

I have a treat for you today in the shape of a cute Doodle Pantry image and to paraphrase Charlotte from Charlotte's web "he's some 'terrific' pig".

We have a new challenge at Fab 'n' Funky and my lovely teamie Shirley has chosen the theme of 'Heat Stroke' a Summer or hot themed card. The Doodle Pantry are our sponsors this week and when I found this gorgeous piggy I knew immediately who I'd be making this card for. My mummy's twin sister has a ceramic 'piggy collection'. She just loves them. So this lil' guy was destined to find his way to my darling aunt and as it's Summer here in New Zealand and I have a belated birthday parcel due her way, this was a perfect fit.

So come and meet the wee cutie...

Isn't he just too dang cute?! He so reminds me of Wilbur from Charlotte's Web. If I'd had a spiderweb die, I think I would have gone down that road with the sentiment! But alas no. I did however have the cutest sunglasses die courtesy of Impression Obsession. So I added these, inked the centre and added a little Glossy Accents for the glassy look. I'm so chuffed with how it turned out. I think my hot lil' summertime piggy looks so cute under his sun umbrella with his sunnies on! The umbrella die is a Memory Box die, which I cut a second layer of, to get the dimensional effect with the patterned paper. I layered a plain white umbrella beneath and used Pinflair Glue to create the dimension. Love this glue, really brilliant for this sort of thing.

Some Pig

The lovely bulrushes and duckies die is a new one from Joanna Sheen's Signature Dies range and the sweet rustic fence is a Marianne Designs die. I added a sentiment I inked sometime back and trimmed with brown satin ribbon. The fab spotty paper is also from The Doodle Pantry and comes as part of the set with this gorgeous piggy. There is also another paper in the set, with lovely multicolour stripes, but I opted to keep a simple palette and went for a chocolate brown stripe paper from the Honey Cake collection from My Mind's Eye.

Here's a  little montage for a closer look at the details on the card...
