FTHS June blog hop

Hello, and welcome to my stop on this month's From the Heart Stamps blog hop, and let me tell you, you are going to LOVE this one!

We have a fun and unique hop for you this month.
Every image is new and each designer got to chose what they would like for a special image and Faith designed them. How fun is that??!!! *Thank You, Faith*

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win the featured image on that blog.
In addition to the images offered on each blog, one very lucky hopper will be able to work with Faith to create an idea for a specially made image.
When you complete the hop and arrive back at the FTHS blog, please comment there, and say what kind of image you would like if you win the chance.

If you have arrived here from the lovely Imke, you are in the right place. If you haven't, why don’t you start at the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything. The full hop list is there too.

So, here he is, the image that Faith has so kindly designed for me...

Photo Ham PigWit


I squealed like an excited pigwit when I saw this image, isn't he fun?
I asked Faith to design this image for me because it's my sisters 50th birthday later in the year, and she LOVES piggies, so I thought having Hamlet posing through a photo frame (party booth style) would be perfect to celebrate her special day.


I printed Hamlet twice, and, after colouring with promarkers, I carefully fussy cut around Hamlet and the frame on one image, and just Hamlet on the second one so that I could layer the image with foam tape.
I added the glass of champagne, the party hat, and a gold number 50 (die-namics dies) to complete Hamlet and the frame.
I wanted balloons in the background, so coloured and cut them twice, then glued them behind the frame.
The sentiment is one of 3 you get as a bonus with this image.
The patterned papers used are from Lawn Fawn's 'pint sized patterns (beachside)' paper pad.

I'm entering this card at:
The Ribbon Girl Blog - June card challenge
Penny's paper crafty - anything goes
Crafts galore encore - anything goes
Seize the birthday - anything goes (no topping)
Moving along with the times - age related sentiment. 

Now, please head over to Kathy's blog to see what she asked Faith to design for her :)

I hope that you enjoy hopping with us today.
The hop will end on Sunday, June 12th at 6am EST (11am UK time).
Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday, June 15th.
