Warm Hogs and Pig Kisses

\Oh, my goodness!! I am such a mess with crazy schedules that hubby and I were sitting around this morining having a quiet cup of coffee before he had to run off to help his brother with a guy project, when we both realized that today is our twentieth wedding anniversary!! I thought that I hadn't made him a card, but when I went to dig in my stash of projects for the new release of Totally Stampalicious stamps, I found this one that uses the new sentiments for the Farmer Hawg set released late last year! Whew!! Saved!! I can have it all signed up and ready by the time he gets home!!
I had to do another easel card...can you tell I love these things??? Some of you already know about our problem with wild hogs tearing up our property here in rural Florida. Well, they have been out in full force since the cold snap hit us two weeks ago and is just now letting up. He has setting out corn to get them toward his trap....mmmmm....fresh sausage!!!
Anyway, I used some of that gorgeous textured dp from Stampin' Up! along with some Bayou Blue and Chocolate Chip card stock. The scallop square was made with a large Sizzix die. The corner punches are from the new Occassions catty from SU! The lacey border punch is from Martha Stewart and the image is colored with Copic markers. The warm hogs and pig kisses sentiment just cracks me up!! Love it!! The button I used to make my easel card stand up is from the collection I have from my great great aunt Cal's millenary store that she had in Tunkhannock, Pa back in the early 1900s. Never got to meet her as she was gone long before I arrived here on Earth. My dad, who is 83 has some great stories about her, though. Guess it's a good thing this card is going to be staying close to home!
Guess I got to rambling a bit today. Thanks for checking in with me today!!! Happy creating!!
