Chocolate Kisses with Pigwit

     I'm just so excited that From the Heart is back with their Progressive Challenges again but mostly I'm excited that Faith is so much better.  Blessings, Faith!  The freebie image for the challenge is Pigwit Hogs and Kisses and he's adorable!  Of course, this being February I had to make a Valentine card.

     I decided that something CAS would best showcase Pigwit so I started by using ProMarkers to color him, then I cut him with a simple, square die from Spellbinders (my very first set of dies purchased probably about 6 years ago.  Boy, have I added to my collection of dies since then!)

     I added tissue paper behind him, and tore the edges.  I mounted all of that onto a red card base, leaving room at the top for the sentiment piece.  For embellishment, I added only the red bow.

     How has your weekend gone so far?   Mine has been very productive and creative.  I've managed to make 7 cards since Friday afternoon, and I have images colored for 3 more.  How's that for a stamping frenzy?  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Agree about Faith, good to have her back and you have made this wonderful card in honour of her, I suspect, too. Love the colouring and paper.

Isn't that piglet the cutest thing. Just finished my card but have not posted it yet, you are certainly ahead of the game. I still have to do the Outlawz challenge and get the Bugaboo freebie. This card is so adorable and love the tissue paper, really great tearing going on there.

He is just as cute as can be Connie and you've done an excellent job with the coloring!! Love the stripes you've added to his bow tie and the bow on your design goes perfectly with him! ;) Super cute!! HUGS
