FTHS May Blog Hop



Good morning!  It's time for From the Heart Stamps May Blog Hop; our theme this month is "Pigging Out"...hop along for some fabulous inspiration from the DT!

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry.  One random commentor will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from Faith's store.  

We are having a little twist this month!  Some of our designers will be adding ribbons to their projects; as you hop along, count how many designers used ribbon on their projects.  Email your answer to Faith (faith@fromtheheartstamps.com) for a chance to win a $15 voucher to the FTHS store!

If you have arrived from the From the Heart Stamps blog you are in the right place, if not why don't you start at the From the Heart Stamps blog so that you don't miss anything?

I used Faith's adorable new image "Harriet PigWit Mud Bath", along with this week's sketch and kept it clean, simple, and monochromatic.  I've embellished simply with tiny Swarovski flatback crystals.  Here's a close-up:



Here's the sketch:
