This Little Piggy does the Hula!

Happy Friday!
Right about now, I'm wishing I was on this beach....I might even try the hula if I could try it in Hawaii! We spent a couple of weeks there a long time ago and absolutely loved it. What I'd really love is a few sunny days. They have been few and far between around here. The temps have been low, but the rain is relentless!

For today, I'm showing this cute as can be little Hula Pig and swaying palm tree. Aren't they terrific? In the Gulf Coast town where I grew up we had 4 tremendously tall palm trees in our front yard and we were only a block from the bay. All good and nice until Hurricane season! Then it's batten down the hatches! At least my little piggy has a nice turquoise water beach. After stamping the Hula Pig and Palm Tree, I added some seagulls from the Seaside Dock image and colored it w/ Copics. I used the splatter image to add some sand and also across the bottom of my card. I stamped Leonard Pig Billboard on a separate piece and stamped the greeting inside his billboard. I used a stamp positioner to rearrange the greeting onto two lines instead of one. I added an extra snout on Leonard for a little dimension. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

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

Supplies:
paper: white, turquoise
ink: Memento tuxedo black, desert sand
accessories: Copic markers, Spellbinders square dies, small palm tree punch, pink crystal
