Freshly Made Sketches: Hogs & Kisses

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Karren.


I did a farm card last week and shared fond memories of summers on my grandparent's farm in eastern South Dakota. I must have still had those memories in my thoughts as I sat down to work on this card - because I saw a sunrise over a field. 

FMS Hogs & Kisses.

I have no idea why I added a pig.  Grandpa and Grandma did not have pigs. I've probably offended them both given they raised prize-winning Hereford bulls! But that little guy looked out at me from the set of stamps and won my heart (and in all honesty, he fit in front of the sun!)

I hope to see everybody playing along - it's a wonderful, flexible sketch and I look forward to seeing the variety of cards that everybody makes!

Now that is a cute pig! I'd spend summers with my grandparents on their farm in Kansas when I was a kid. One of my least favorite chores was feeding the pigs. If only they had been as cute as the one on your card, I might have liked them more. Your card makes me think of summer, and the gingham background is perfect for a farm scene. Cute card, Kim!

Herefords notwithstanding, this little piggy (pun intended) is just the right farm animal for your little scene! Just look at the cute expression on his face! He's so happy!

I love this card! I'm guessing that it would not at all be offensive to any farmer. :) I love the gingham DSP you chose. It really gives it that down-home country feel.
