Stop-Smile-Breathe

The Crafters Café is recycling for this challenge.  We all have 'stuff' and all it demands is another way of looking at it.  Check out the challenge and the design team: crafterscafe



The image is just the cutest and so universal, it could be used for anything!  Have look at the images Sparkle'n'Sprinkle have in their shop:
sparklensprinkle-548-hog-heaven



Image: Sparkle'n'Sprinkle -hog heaven
Coloured with Copics
Sentiment stamp: Kaisercraft
Recycled: 3 wrappings from a bouquet of flowers my husband gave me recently
Also: silver pen, gems


I overlaid the three layers of semi sheer fabric to allow them to make new colours, and let miss piggy be the star.  put a towel down on your floor, close your eyes, stop-smile-breathe, imagine you are on a beach in Rarotonga ....  I like these bold colours that show Miss Piglet off.

This made me chuckle, Carol. The sentiment is perfect for a pig relaxing on a blanket. Great layered background too. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to Stamps and More.

Oh my! How adorable is your 'relaxing' piggy! So sweet and yes, that sentiment rings true (and is one I should be heeding far more often)! Thank you for sharing your creativity in the Addicted to Stamps and More gallery.

Wow Carol, those colours are so gorgeous and definitely bold all together on this card. I love that piggy (reminds me a lot of myself) and your colouring skills are spectacular. I also need that sentiment on every wall in my house to remind myself of that!! I'm so glad you joined us at TIME OUT!!
