Hog Wild

This is an older, long retired Inkdinkado stamp that I found very much by chance, and very reasonably priced, on 'Flea-bay' last year. On the bottom of the stamp it actually says 'I'm hog wild for you', which in this case, I masked and thus omitted for my card.

I coloured the image with Copic Markers and it was the first time I felt like I might be getting the hang of them. In fact, I am quite pleased with how it turned out. Hooray, success!

The card was mailed to my mum, who is celebrating her 82nd birthday today. Too bad I cannot be there with her, but as she is getting on in age, she hates having too many people around her anyway. My dad, my two sisters, my brother, their spouses and two grandkids will be plenty to tire her out, LOL.

The Stamp:
• 95188M - Hog Wild by Inkadinkado

• 655838 - Sizzix Embossing Folder from the Dots And Flowers Set
• Martha Stewart Mini Hearts Punch
• Round and Round Oval Scallop Nesties by Spellbinders

Cute card! Happy Birthday to your Mum. I bet if you showed up on her doorstep that she wouldn't turn you away. Sorry you couldn't be with her, but I bet your card is the BEST one she got!
