Ho Ho Ho!

Happy Friday!
Christmas is fast approaching and I'm like "oh no! I have so much to do!" It's coming down to crunch time. I only wish I had all my shopping and wrapping done like this little piggy. He must be the one who went to market and I must be the one who stayed home. At least I'm happy to report we did put our lights up outside so we're not the blank spot on our little cul de sac.

For my Piggy Goes Christmas Shopping card, I stamped the Christmas Leonard Pig and Leonard Pig Billboard and colored them w/ Copic markers. I masked the bottom of the billboard and stamped the Ho Ho Ho and made the billboard a tad longer to accommodate the greeting. I also stamped two of the Christmas Lights, colored them and cut them out. Just for a little something extra, I also stamped, colored and cut out a Santa Hat and added it to the Leonard Billboard image.

The red frame was die cut and embossed w/ a herringbone folder then I attached the Billboard Leonard and strings of lights. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

What an adorable card, Julie! I can't believe you cut out those lights and I love how you wrapped them around Leonard! Outstanding!

This is so darling, Julie. I like the way you have the lights strung from Leonard! He is ready to party.

Holy Smokes Lady! I can't believe you cut out all those light bulbs - well worth it though! Adorable card with fantastic coloring too!

Wow, love the the way you used the lights, and the background. Great card.

Another masterpiece Julie :) Love how you always make all the pieces parts you choose, come together so perfectly. However, I can only imagine the effort and planning involved. I too wish I was as on the ball as Lenoard. Not one gift wrapped yet!
