Piggy Christmas

This week the challenge is

Lets Get Ready For Christmas 

We are showcasing Clearly Besotted Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your crafty makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

This was one of the last cards I made before I went on my hols which I've now discovered that while I was away all the Clearly Besotted Perfect Pigs were sold and are now out of stock.

But to be honest you can make a similar card with any animal stamp that fits the Tim Holtz Crazy Things santa hats stamps.

I paper pieced my piggys using a sheet of Doodlebug Hello 6 inch pad, each piggy was stamped twice so I could layer heads or bodies.

To make the actual card I used Simon says Stamp Bundle of Shapes and their Stitched Squares.  My sentiment is the Simon says stamp Believe stamp and die and to finish with a snowflake using Simon says Stamps Stitched Snowflakes. 

The tiny dot in the centre is using the waste from the Tim Holtz Gearhead die, in fact I use them regularly for flower centres too.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.
