It's Your Pig Day (FTHS image)

Hello, everyone!  Today's card has been inspired by several challenges.  First of all, I'm taking part in From the Heart Stamps - Stamp of the Month challenge.  It's a progressive challenge.  Since I made a card last month using the March digi, I received the April digi for free! You can join at any time.  The April digi is called Hamlet PigWit Being Shy - what a cute little piggy!  I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils, fussy-cut, and added a party hat sticker.  The hat fits nicely with the Hats challenge over at Quirky Crafts!


My friend Monika at Creative with Monika is celebrating her birthday by hosting a challenge to CASE one of her cards.  Today is her birthday - Happy Birthday, Monika! - so I thought it was the best day to join in the fun!   She provided several samples of her cards to CASE and I chose "Cute and Funny Card."  However, rather than a plain white background as in her sample, I went with a stenciled background as in her "No Design Paper Card."  I also wanted to make a it a manly card because this is Monika's specialty.  I hope you like how I CASE'd your cards, Monika!

I sponged Crushed Olive Distress Ink using Simon Says Stamp's Screened Leaves stencil.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted's Flight of Fancy clear stamps and I heat embossed it in white on a black snippet. You will notice I modified the sentiment by replacing the word Special with Pig using my Dymo label maker - I wanted to create a pun!  Monika uses a Dymo on many of her cards also. Keeping it masculine, there are no embellishments, and Hamlet is standing on a piece of musical washi tape.

I would also like to support these fun challenges:  Buckwell's Crafty Colour 1/3 (RANDOM WINNER)Bunny Zoe's Spring Colours UE; Craftin Desert Diva's AG UE; Creative Corner Challenges Cute Critters 1/3; Creative Fingers AG 1/3; Cuttin' and Stampin' Puns 1/3; DL.ART April Linky AG UE 1/day; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Loves Rubberstamps AG UE; My Craft Creations April AG UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; Penny's Paper-Crafty AG 1/3; Papertake Weekly AG 2/5; Pixie's Snippet Playground Black and white cardstock are snippets 2/3; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5
Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!
