From The Heart Stamps Blog Hop - Pigging Out

It's time for the May Blog Hop at From The Heart Stamps and we've gone for a theme of

Pigging Out plus the option of adding ribbon

Which is a perfect excuse to show of the fab PigWit images!  Plus there are some new releases in the store which are just wonderful!

I've used an older stamp - Hamlet PigWit Being Shy which I've coloured with Promarkers and added a Spellbinder lacy edge die cut behind her (I've changed him to a her!)  I hand wrote the sentiment on the die cut.  All the papers are from Dovecraft Back To Basics 3 6x6 pad which I bought for £2 from The Works.


The pom pom ribbon is also from The Works - I got a huge roll of it for £3 and the reel is nice too!  To finish off the card I've added a dotted line of liquid pearls around the edges.

If you've arrived at my blog from Michelle then you are on the right track!  Before you hop over to the last stop which is the FTHS blog make sure you leave me a comment.  One lucky person who leaves a comment on my post will be in with a chance to win a free image from the store!

As an added bonus - count up how many of us are using ribbon and then email Faith faith@fromtheheartstamps.com with your answer before the end of the hop to be in with a chance of winning a $15 gift certificate from the store.

Good luck - the hop will end on Sunday 8 May at 6am EST with the winners announced on the blog on Wednesday 11 May.  Good luck!!

I'd like to enter the following challenge:
