Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps May blog hop! If you have arrived from KELLY’S BLOG, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps Blog, so you don’t miss anything.

Today’s theme is a Pig Out – let’s use a PigWit boys and girls! Don’t worry – we have a surprise for you today – NEW PigWits are in the store for you today! Faith asked the DT what kind of Pigwits we wanted to to see and we let the ideas fly… she granted all of our wishes…

I said I wanted a pig that could fly and she gave me two to choose from. OF COURSE, I couldn’t choose so I made a card with each! My first card uses Harriet PigWit Take Flight. I went CAS with her as I thought that the sentiment combined with her sweetness were perfectly perfect! You can’t see it too well. but I glittered up her wings and they are shiny, shiny!

My second card uses Hamlet Pigwit Determined to Fly. I L-O-V-E love him! His wings and mask made me think steam-punk, so I added a gear embossed vellum overlay, and some gear embellishments to finish off my card. Did I mention I love him?
