When Pigs Fly

I have a blog candy going on right now. If you are interested in seeing the giveaway and entering to win it, please see this post.

 Hi everyone! How many times have you heard the phrase "when pigs fly?" Well did you ever stop to think that maybe the phrase originated because there are magical pig fairies out there? Me neither. But luckily for us Fawn Palmer did! And because she did we have this adorable Fairy Pig image newly released at Squigglefly!

Isn't this just the cutest little pink pig you've ever seen?  I colored with Copic markers and glittered the wings.  It was cut out and mounted directly onto the paper.  I added some lace that I also colored with copic markers and computer generated the sentiment.  Inside the card says "just don't open this card."

And the phrase "when pigs fly" is probably the answer to the question "when will this miserable heat wave and drought end?"!  It was 110 degrees yesterday!  Here's a screen shot of the weather forecast for our area the next few days.  Notice the current temperature was 107, and that was about 6:30 pm!

Hope you are staying cool wherever you are~!

Oh I love this card so cute and it does go with your weather. I feel so bad for you. We had a week or 2 of the high 90's and I think the highest it got was 104. I stayed inside. I hope you have cool places to stay in.
Thanks for sharing your card.

Love the card. What's the one condition??

We've gotten a break from our heat, hopefully the cooler air is moving your direction.

One absolutely terrific and adorable pig and a great background too! Love this card and the sentiment is just perfect too! Wish I could send you cooler weather but I don't think I'll be able to until pigs fly!

Super cute card Holly. That pig makes me smile! I'm gonna have to figure out how to capture her and NOT open her card!
