My Swine Song

I am taking a little time off to be with my grandchildren this summer.  As they do not live near me, I only get to see them a couple of times a year.  Summer is "our special time" and I can't wait.  So this is my last card until August rolls around.  I have titled it "My Swine Song".  Now the way I see it, every girl needs to have at least one pig as a friend.  Who else can you go out snorting with and one good oink deserves another.  So y'all have a good summer and don't forget to bring home the bacon!!












My sister asked me to make a birthday card for one of her friends.  Melanie and her friend Susan have a little game going on where they give each other pigs.  So,  who better to make a pig card than I.  I do so enjoy reading your comments and as I have said many times before - we all need a little love now and then.

XO - Sandy  (have you hugged your pig today?)

Sandy another amazing creation you are one very talented lady x x x

Iulia said...

Oh,Sandy, I remember having felt like this about 10 years ago when one ex-boyfriend dumped me...lol (well, kind of:))! You surely don't mean to leave us... I mean your grandkiddos wil also sleep now and then.. lol... and you can also show them how to make cards and play with each other:)) Well, I'm just kidding dear Sandy,, spending quality time with your grandchildren is definitely the most important thing in the world, just that life will be different without your adorable funny cards.
And this is definitely my favorite so far. What a great idea with these cute piglets! Your coloring has reached perfection- you definitely spent some time on it. How imaginative you are! That one is dirty then he washes up...lol. Love those bubbles and the back of the last picture makes me sad, instead of making me smile:(
Love your card sweetie and thank you so much for offering it to us, your blogging friends(I dare count me in:))!
Hugs my dear and please do come by now and then and let me know you are ok:)
Iulia

OMG OMG OMG!!! Those are the cutest pigs I've EVER seen!!! I LOVE them! I went through a phase a while back where I collected pigs and I still have every one of them. Soooo CUTE!!! I love your cards, Sandy! You enjoy those little ones! They grow up way too fast, and the paper will last forever! You will be sorely missed, and we will be here waiting for you when the summer is through. I get to bring my little grandson back with me next month, so I know exactly how you feel!!

Pen to Paper said...

Sandy I'm going to miss you!!! I love seeing your cards so much. They are just the best really and they bring a smile to my face and make my heart leap!! Have fun with your grandkids. My nephews live in Florida and i live in CT so I understand what you're feeling. They come up every summer and stay for their whole summer vacation. Every moment with them is precious because you don't get to see them year round and miss out on so many momentous occasions. But i digres!! Have fun!!

And beautiful card as always. See you in August!

Hugs,

Jackie

Loved your Pig cards, I am an old farm girl myslef and would love to know where to find the pigs. I just love farm animals and only have a few critters like turtles, snales, grasshoppers. Great cards I have also joined your email list.

Hoodia is a relatively new product. It makes sense that for Hoodia, which was only introduced to the American marketplace in 2004, there has not been enough time to develop a patch to efficiently deliver the stated dose of the medication, much less to test that patch for efficient delivery; the research and development phases of this process takes many years. By taking Hoodia throughout the day, dieters are provided with full appetite control and support. Many people find it cumbersome for breaking down and absorbing Gordonii supplements as pills becomes a real challenge to their body.
