Hello, blogger friends! I'm back from semi-retirement to post this adorable piggy Faith Skrdla gave away for this month's SOTM progressive challenge over on the From the Heart Stamps blog. Faith has been battling brain cancer, and I am absolutely THRILLED that she is feeling well enough to be creating some new digis and sketches for the weekly sketch challenges over on the FTHS blog. Although my job has picked up quite a bit (cutting into my craft time, unfortunately, and necessitating a hiatus from my DT position on the Outlawz and from blogging in general!), I didn't want to miss out on celebrating Faith's return.

For this card, I used the Hershey's kisses Faith included in the SOTM as a background for the banners and colored them with my silver leafing marker. To follow the sketch, I added a bow, printed the sentiment (also included in the SOTM) on vellum, digitally colored the cute piggy and did a print and cut of him using my Silhouette machine.

For the inside of the card, I used a Gina Marie Designs die to die cut the frame and sentiment (sentiment is from a CTMH clear stamp set) and added another Hershey's kiss I printed and cut with my Silhouette before coloring with my silver leafing marker.

I hope all of you are having a wonderful 2017 so far. May the Lord bless and keep each of you! I've missed you all!
