Hambo Stamps Sweetheart Pig

Happy 4th of July!

I hope you are enjoying the holiday!

Today is our wedding anniversary and the start of the weekly Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps Midweek Throwdown challenge so I picked the challenge theme as - Anniversary Cards...

I LOVE Hambo Stamps and had to have this cute stamp and sentiment when I saw them to make the perfect Anniversary and Valentine cards.   I've been asked to make a dozen Anniversary cards for our church and was thinking there should be a few of these in there, hehehe.

I colored the cute Sweetheart Pig with Copic markers:

Swine Flesh:  YR0000, YR000, YR00, R01
Shorts:  BV0000, BV000, BV00, R35, R46
Flowers:  R35, R46, R59, G21, G24
Balloon:  BG10, BG11, BG13
Background Outline:  B0000, B00
Shadows:  BV000, W0

My paper choices are Via Vellum Black, Copic X Press It, Neenah Red Pepper, Stampin' Up! Taken With Teal & Discount Card Stock Cobalt.  The layout is one of my favorite sketches I had to search my files for from Splitcoast Stampers, Sketch Challenge #314.

Be sure to stop by the Hambo Hoedown today too, our challenge is running for two weeks so you still have plenty of time to play!

Good Morning Jan, This is so cute. The black matting on all of your pieces really make everything pop. I love to mate with black. Adorable sentiment. What "lady" could possibly resist this little guy all decked out in the shorts bears such great gifts? Have a fabulous day
