This is the image for the progressive challenge for From the Heart Stamps. The image and sentiment is from Hogs and Kisses Pigwit. My favorite chocolate is Hershey Kisses and M&Ms. I try very hard not to buy them when I go to the store. I would eat the whole package. But he is just so cute with kiss in hand. Since Valentine's Day is past I decided to use him for St. Patrick's Day. I don't send a lot of St. Patrick's Day cards but I do send a few. This is a window card. The window is die cut with MFT Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Squares. Pigwit is floating on an acetate window. Along with him are some green hearts cut from Simon Says Stackable Hearts die. I glued them on both the inside and the outside of the window and covered them with Wink of Stella for a nice shimmer. I colored Pigwit with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut him twice. So there is a blank that's glued on the other side of the window so you don;t see the marker coming through. I die cut the sentiment with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags and inked with Mowed Lawn distress ink. To finish off I made a row of lighter green hearts on the kraft card stock. The designer paper on the inside of the card is from Recollections Basics Paper Pad. I think it turned out really cute.
I am entering these challenges:
- Stamp of the Month at From the Heart Stamps: use Hogs & Kisses Pigwit
- Lil Patch of Crafty Friends: anything goes
- Alphabet Challenge: Y is for Your Choice

That's it for today. We are off to have some fun with friends. Hope your weekend has been wonderful. Our weather is supposed to be in the 60s all week.I'm afraid it will kill all the buds on the trees and flowers when we get the inevitable freeze. Take care!
