PPC105 - Pigs are Flying & Buddy's run-in

Happy Friday to you!  I haven't been around blogland much this week.  Not sure where I've been - but I'm back today with a card I put together with the Paper Players Challenge #105.

I colored up this Eat Cake Graphics flying pig last week with my mom and I showed her how to mask images and make clouds.

I wasn't sure what I was going to do for a sentiment so I ended up collaborating.  I first grabbed My Favorite Things: "Hell has officially frozen over" stamp but needed something to correlate with the piggy.  That's when I grabbed my Lawn Fawn alphabets and just made my own thing up.

I used a Sizzix cloud die, some new washi tape and what's a card without bling? Not sure who I'll send this card too. I guess I'll just have to wait until something unbelievable happens! OR - if someone wants to buy it - that's fine too :)

Here's the sketch:

I was at my local park on Wednesday with my three dogs when Buddy disappeared from me for a short bit. He does this often but the call of "Cookies!!" gets him running back.  Well, he was near a swampy area and I heard a big splash. Knowing he's not a swimmer - I called for him and when he came to me he was gushing blood from his ear!!!  YIKES!  I saw he had a huge gash.  I quickly leashed him up, called the vet and brought him in.  I think he got bit by a snapping turtle!  So, he had to spend most of the day at the vet and this is my poor sad boy.  He'll be sportin' this for two weeks!!

He's so sad :(

Thanks for your visit!

Your card is to funny, someone will love it when the right occasion comes up I am sure and poor Buddy, he does look very pitiful. Thankfully it was only his ear that got bitten though!
