CASology #112: THREE Little Pigs

It’s time for a brand new cue word challenge over at CASology and I think you’ll love this one!

This word made me immediately think of a classic childhood story, The Three Little Pigs!  Thankfully, I do have quite a few pig images in my stash which I’ve collected over the years (thanks to Hambo Stamps and their humor).  I ended up using a partial pig image from a retired Gina K set.

I cut off the legs and tails on these creatures so that I could use their cute little faces for my design!  I stamped them on patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye and then fussy cut.  I adhered some button noses for interest and popped up all three pigs with foam dots after attaching a little cardstock to the back of each for some extra support.  I decided to center the simple sentiment because is seems to draw the eye to the deviant pig in the middle.  The inside says, “It’s your birthday!”

Want to see even more creative inspiration for this week’s cue word?  Go visit the other design team member and guest designer blogs this week!  Go ahead and leave them some blog love while you’re at it!  They’d love to hear from you!

    Love that there are 3 pigs but that it also ties to the story! Very cute!

    This made me chuckle. So very cute, and also something to think about, with that crazy middle pig. He is my favorite, of course.
