Ok it is time for a little mid-month inspiration at the Hambo Hoedown. I decided to use an image that would not only fit with this month’s theme of “PIGS”, but would fit with a Hope You Can Cling To Challenge at SplitCoast Stampers – HYCCT1402 Hope Floats…

I found an old sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge that I thought would be fun…Until I started trying to match up paper with my image that I colored before I chose the paper – big mistake! Now I feel like my card turned into a patch work quilt of crazy, but hey – with his head in the cloud, the floating pig’s world is a patchwork huh?


Here is my card using Hambo’s Floating Pig
