It’s been many years since we raised pigs. The building is now gone, destroyed by a tornado a few years ago, but I still have mostly fond memories of our pig raising endeavors. If you ask my daughter, now in her mid-thirties, about pig stories, she will tell you about getting stepped on by a pig. As a preschooler that really stuck for her. It was a tiny little feeder pig that we were just bringing home, so don’t worry about her safety, she was fine. I remember how they would snuffle at my ankles when I was in the pen, they never seemed unfriendly but I always remembered stories of people having heart attacks in a pig pen and then being eaten by the pigs, my imagination would work overtime. The only time that I really got annoyed with the creatures was one time when they got out of their pen. Pigs do not herd well! They are sure captured as cute images in the ‘This Little Piggy’ stamp set. I’m glad that I purchased it immediately when it came out, and I’m sad to see it on the retired list. I tend to purchase every animal themed stamp set that comes out. I used to gravitate towards snowmen and butterflies, but after 20 years of rubber stamp collecting I have lots of those.
I thought that I would share with you some cards that I created for our niece who owns a trucking company. They haul lots of animals for farmers and she wanted farm themed thank you cards. If you want to purchase the This Little Piggy stamp set, be sure to order it by mid-May.
The images were all stamped with Memento Tuxedo ink and colored with Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blend markers. The designer series papers that I used on these cards are all from retired packs.
Hope you are staying safe and happy. Remember, crafting is awesome therapy!
