Pig Sub

For the progressive challenge over at the Hambo Hoedown we were given this cute little Pig Sub - if you didn't get the image free by playing in the last challenge you can always find it in the Hambo store.



The challenge for this week is to make a card (using any Hambo image) for Operation Write Home.  I kept this very simple by printing out the image and then doing a little paper piecing on it.  Isn't that blue background paper with the bubbles on it just the best!! It's from Paper Studio and thought it'd look good on cards that needed some water - I'm not talented enough and way too lazy to try to "do" water otherwise! The sub was pieced with some very subtle yellow and white check - I just HAD to do the "yellow submarine"!.  And how about that little piggy inside the sub!

Thanks for stopping by........and be sure and check out the Hambo challenge.

I'm so loving this yellow submarine! Your "water" paper is marvelous - and you're very clever to see it and know it would work on cards. Terrific job matching the paper piecing with the dp and border. I really like this!
