Porky Passion

Hi de hi crafters!!

Hope this finds you well. I can't believe I haven't managed to post anything yet this week. The time seems to have slipped away with me. We've had some lovely days ( far too good to miss!!) so aside from work I have been outside . Anyhow, to make up for my absence I have two cards to share today and this is the first
- my creation for

As You Like It Challenge.

 Our theme this fortnight is to showcase your favourite animal, and don't forget to tell us WHY.

Now then, my long suffering crafty buddies will know that horses and dogs are at the top of my, most favourite animals, list. However, a little known fact is that I have a passion for all things piggish. I have a large welsh dresser that is home to masses of the little porky darlings. Ornaments, teapots, stuffed ones, candle ones...the list goes on and on, I even have oven gloves!! I'm not entirely sure how it started, we have never farmed them, so I think the love probably came from a weird fascination with Pinky and Perky as a child !!

Anyway, now I've got that off my chest here is my card...

The image is " I smell spring" from Whimsy, coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from Cuddly Buddly.

I'm taking pork chop off to these challenges!!
