Birthday Pig

This represents me today.  It's my birthday (how quickly THOSE roll around) and I will be eating all day today. 

The clip-art I "borrowed" this idea from had Miss Pig standing on a scale.  It's my birthday so I get to deny the existence of those torture machines!

Face – Full Heart

Chin – ¾ inch circle

Nose – ½ inch circle – repunched with same to narrow (put on a post it note so you can hold on to it)

Ears – small heart to heart trimmed

Eye white – small heart

Eye black – tiny owl or marker

Dress – 2 wide ovals

Legs – small oval cut in half

Feet – wide heart to heart trimmed

Arms – word window piece

Hands – ½ inch circle at ends of modern label

Draw on mouth and nostrils

Again, happy birthday girl!!!!

Oh Ellen, I love your pig - and must case it. Do you have a cow anywhere? I must get back into your blog and research it. Wished you had update engine for us. But then I've not been into my yahoo mail lately to even check those. But I'd love to see a cow since a friend of mine loves cows. I love the pig!
