Sneak Peek Day Two!!

Today is a fun day because you are going to see another adorable animal that is hand drawn by Melyssa and made into a Whimsie Doodles digistamp! Meet this adorable Lil Piggy who is having fun playing in the rain!! Don't you remember how fun it was to play in the rain when you were a little child? I loved it! And I also remember that my son when he was growing up could never walk around a puddle... he always had to go through it!! LOL!

Well at least this Lil Piggy has her rubber boots on for the occasion! Take a look at this Puddle Jumping Pig!!

If the card seems a little less busy than my normal cards, it is because I was also playing along with yesterday's Clean and Simple Challenge, CAS20 at SCS to use paper piecing! I printed the image out three times in total. Once onto the base cardstock (GP 110lb) and twice onto the DCWV DP from the Nana's Nursery Baby Girl collection. With the second printing I only cut out the sleeve, hood and pockets and added them to the first layer of DP to add dimension and depth to the image.

I used my Scor-Pal to score a frame around the image and also added (free hand) dots to frame it onto the card! I believe that "summer" embellishment was from an old Doodle Bug Designs collection. I colored the image parts that weren't paper pieced with Copics. I also used my border punch from Martha Stewart on both the green and pink papers and then staggered and layered them to complete the card.

Here is a shot of the inside. The sentiment that comes with this image says: "When life gives you rain, play in the puddles!!" Isn't that cute? I will be sending this card to someone who needs a little uplifting in the Share A Card group that I belong to where we send encouragement cards to terminally ill people going through a tough time!

If you would be interested in sending cards to people in need, please sign up at the Share A Card website HERE! My good cyber friend Gigi is on the board there and they are just a wonderful organization!

This adorable Puddle Jumper and sentiment digistamp set will be available for sale on July 1st at the Whimsie Doodles Etsy store! It would also make an adorable shower invitation wouldn't it??

To see some more sneak peeks using this digistamp, please visit the Whimsie Doodles Blog!

Have a great day and if your bucket is overflowing with too much rainfall... may you have fun playing in the puddles!

The card is darling! The umbrella is exceptionally paper pieced- precise cutting!

PS about my green grapes... I made them green out of necessity- I don't have purple Copics yet!
