Hogs & Kisses

Happy Monday! The start of a new week and the wedding creeps closer. Less than three weeks now. I worked on the favors a little while tonight but decided to make a card.

I saw some awesome fall cards today on blogs so I went a little more toward fall with this one, at least with the colors. The image is the stamp of the month over at From the Heart stamps challenge. Isn't he just the cutest! The sentiment came with the image. I used the Paper Players sketch for the layout. I colored the image with Copics and water-colored the sentiment with spiced marmalade distress ink. I punched some oak leaves to make a littel embellishment. I die cut the image with Spellbinders scalloped circles and inked the edges with Certainly Celery ink. The banner is a trick I learned on Jennifer McGuire's blog. The trick is in this video toward the end. It's a way to cheat a banner. I am entering these challenges:
Hope you had a great start to your week.  I am looking forward to a three day weekend and some down time. No family this weekend so I hope to finish the rest of the favors for the wedding. Take care and make  it an awesome week!
