This little piggy

First off, let me apologize for the not so great pictures for the next couple of days.  My husband lent our camera to a couple we know whose camera broke two days before they left for vacation, so for the week I'm at the mercy of my not-so-stellar Android camera.  I'm using Picasa to try to edit them as best as I can.

So, as I mentioned before, I'm not an outdoorsy person.  I do remember trying to go fishing with my dad when I was a girl, but I was always too afraid that when I put the hook over my head (I don't even know what it's called) to get ready to throw it out, it would accidentally stab me instead.  So, my fishing hobby kind of died before it started.  Nonetheless, here is a card with a little cutie going fishing.

This card is slightly smaller than A2, because it was made with a premade base that someone gave me.  I think it's about 5.5 x 4.  The yellow background paper is from the 8x8 Basics stack by Paper Studio and the strip is from the ProvoCraft Celebrations 6x12 stack.  I cut the piggy from Create a Critter at 3.5 inches and the fish and fishing rod from Simply Charmed at 3 inches.  The flower in the piggy's hair is a puffy sticker that I got from Dollar Tree.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Cardz TV- Anything Goes
Pause, Dream, Enjoy- Sports/Hobbies
Pile it On- Cute as can be
Paper Playtime- Anything Goes
Bitten by the Bug 2- On the Farm
Fantabulous Cricut- S'more anyone? (camping)
Die Cuttin Divas- Anything Goes

I have a pretty busy week this week, so I decided to give myself the challenge of fitting as many challenges as possible onto one card.  It helps that this week there are 3 "Anything Goes" challenges, but it was still kind of tough.  It's pretty easy to come up with cards that only fit one or two themes, but even without the Anything Goes challenges I needed it to fit four different themes!  Yet it's still totally my style.  :)
