How Piggin' Cute :@)


The new images at StampFairy today feature this cute lil piggy with his umbrella & there is an umbrella freebie that matches perfectly too!  There is 50% off at the moment too, so you can buy twice as much lol.  I thought I'd make a corner bookmark (a friend at work said she needed one).  There are some instructions HERE if you would like to have a go :)  I coloured the image with ProMarkers & paper pieced the brolly, the freebie brolly has been covered with Glossy Accents.  The front of the bookmark has been embossed & I finished off with a ribbon, brad & border punch.

Creative Craft - Bookmarks
Craft Your Days Away - Spots & Stripes
PaperPlay - Critters Galore
I Did It -Anything Goes 
Creative Card Crew - April Showers
Crafty Creations - Rain Showers 
C.R.A.F.T. - Animals/Pets
