Hogs and Kisses

I can't believe it, the day's finally here!! This is my first post for the challenge blog of Clearly Delightful sponsored by Doodle Pantry. I've had this card done and ready for days just waiting for today, lol! All of the new Doodle Pantry images are sooo sweet, especially this precious piglet, isn't she adorable! I did this for a friend who needed a little pick me up and that's what's on the inside of the card, almost. It says "Thought you could use a little pig me up". She is going to LOVE it! I watercoloured the piglet so I'd have more control over the colours. I haven't done watercolours for ages, I need to do it more often. The Clearly Delightful challenge for this month is anything goes as long as you use a Doodle Pantry image, how easy it that. Doodle Pantry has a great selection of images, the ants are my favorite, however if you don't want to buy one they have a great selection of free images here. Just for participating you also receive a free image, for this challenge its the Get Well Worm, he's adorable.
This month there will be three randomly chosen winners, 2 will receive a free image of their choice and 1 will receive an image and a prize. To see all of the details of Clearly Delightful challenge #9 you can go to this page. To enter you only have to do 4 simple things:

1. Follow the challenge theme with a project or card-this month's theme is to use a Doodle Pantry Image (that's all) If you don't have one and don't wish to buy one remember the freebie page here.
2.. Your post must be dated within the time frame of the challenge. Therefore no past creations, make something new.
