I am so glad that Faith, the owner and illustrator at From The Heart Stamps has recovered from her illness and is able to get the blog up and running again. They have this really cool challenge. If you use their digital stamp of the month and enter their challenge, you will receive for free the next month's stamp. As long as you keep entering the challenges, you will receive the next month's stamp.
This image is from the PigWits Valentine set. I have my Valentines done so went with this sentiment. Inside is blank so any message can be added. I colored the pig with Prismacolor pencils. The DP is a rose print from Hobby Lobby. I added a flourish from SU Timeless Treasures set all around the border with Melon Mambo ink. There was not room for a mat to the art piece so I just sponged some purple on the edge to match the purple bow tie. A little piece of a doily makes it even more feminine. This will be going in my collection to send to Send A Smile 4 Kids and also entering their Anything Goes Challenge.
I used a clean and layered style for the challenge at The Card Concept. I picked out the rose from their picture, featuring it in the DP.
Their challenge is love and romance. I guess you could write I love you inside and maybe add a few punched hearts on the front.
