Hogs & Kisses

Hello everyone! :) Hope you are all doing great today!! Only a few days until Easter! I'm so looking forward to Easter this year. Bria has been reading her 'Dora's Egg Hunt' book and she's going to be so thrilled when she realizes she's going to get to have an egg hunt of her own! I think tonight we are going to decorate eggs so that should be... interesting! Bria's a little wild and definitely MESSY so I'm betting she's going to look like a colorful little Easter egg when we're done!

Speaking of Bria, I wanted her to help me out a little with a card for her Grandma for Mother's Day. I let her choose an animal and she picked the piggy from Create a Critter. I think it was a great choice since I have a 'Hogs & Kisses' stamp from My Pink Stamper that I had yet to use!

Card details...
- Piggie was from Create A Critter, pig's face was from the Peachy Keen Critter Faces set , pig's dress was embossed with the candy cane stripes Cuttlebug folder
- sentiment 'Hogs & Kisses' is from My Pink Stamper
- EK Success border punch
- Twine from the Twinery
- stitching with white Gelly Roll pen
- heart on tag was from my stash

The challenges I am going to enter this card in are:
- Mojo Monday (Sketch Challenge) HERE

- Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday Mother's Day Challenge HERE
- Pile It On Smells Like Rubber Challenge HERE - I just discovered this challenge blog the other day and it is AWESOME!!
- Little Claire's Designs Animal Challenge HERE
- Fun with Shapes & More HERE
- Creative Craft Challenges HERE

I'm awaiting some new stamps I ordered from Pink By Design to finish a card that I am making for my nephew's birthday on the weekend. I hope they get here soon, they should be here any day!! I hope you all have a wonderful day and I will hopefully be back again tomorrow with another project!!
