For Your Piggy Bank (CDD Linky Party - Anything but a Card)

Happy Monday!
Today starts a brand new 
Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party
hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas!
Every other Monday will mark the beginning
of a new semi-weekly linky party
and you could win fabulous prizes!!

Here is my project...

Everything got inked around the edges with pink ink.
Head, nose, bow, ears... all adhered with foam squares for dimension.

I can't help but grin when I see this little darlin'!
I used my Silver Cameo sketch pen for the pig's hairbow 
and some chalks for those big cheeks. Cute!

Look at that cute tail!
There is a slot in the top of the box for some cha-ching!

Silhouette ID# 63020

Here's a close-up of the sentiment....

I used "Just Pigcause."

I hope you'll come play with us!
