Happy Flying Pig Day

Remember - A Pig That Has Wings Does Impossible Things

I had to make a flying pig again and used the Curvy Keepsake die to make this one adding wings (also a die of a butterfly simply cut in half).  I only managed to put together a few of these so I could deliver some little gifties and candy to a few special people.

I did manage, however, to get more of these little cards done and hopefully got them posted in time for most of the recipients to have before March 1st.  

They are actually half the size of an A2 card - a little bigger than ATC size.  I tore some pages out of an old paperback dictionary and gave them a quick coat of gesso.  Then, not being able to get to my acrylics, got out my watercolors and added a blue wash.  The clouds and pig were stamped and fussy cut out and one cloud and the pig were popped up.

The cards were quite springy, thus the scissor on the corner below to hold it closed for a photo.

If you're new to my blog you may ask why the flying pigs.  Here are the links to my previous March 1st posts which should help explain the significance. 

Embrace the impossible and dream!


  1. I've never heard of National Pig Day! Thanks for the info, and that is the cutest little flying pig! TFS!

  2. I guess I will be stalking my mail box for more than a couple of stamp orders!! I love the gessoed page, and that swirly cloud has a very Celtic look to it.

  3. I am soo sorry that it has taken me so long to get over here and thank you for my flying pig this year. The charm is around my ankle and still going strong. I loved all of it. You are so sweet. This year marks my 5th year of no cancer and feeling so much better than 5 years ago. I love this yearly tradition and it means more to me than you will ever know. I still have my solar pig on my desk and it too is still going strong. Thank you.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
