A very happy day to everyone and best wishes for a great weekend filled with lots of fun things. Sorry I have been a bit out of touch but sometimes LIFE just gets in the way!! Have you ever found that to be the case??? But maybe things are back to normal---whatever that is!!!!
This is a very fun easel card that I made for my posting day over at Wild Orchid Crafts Blog and if you have never been over there, we would love to have you visit and see what the DT members have done with WOC products each day! For many of us it seems very strange to see a piglet on a holiday card, but in the Scandinavian countries a pig is a sign of very good luck for the holidays, reminiscent of olden times when a peasant family's wealth was tied up in its precious pig. They even have events where the prize is a marzipan pig!!! Personally I would much prefer cloudberry jam rather than a marzipan pig...hahahahah
For my card, the base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Doodlebug North Pole Paper Pad. The cute image on the front of the card is Tilda with Pigling from the A Christmas Story 2012 Collection which is available over at Magnolia-licious along with the very NEW Nativity Collection. On the base of the easel I used little Sweet Piglet. The images were stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Flexmarkers before cutting them out with SB. I also used several products from Wild Orchid Crafts: Satin Ribbon, Holly Leaves, Poinsettia Blooms, Pearl Brads, and Self-Adhesive Pearls. The little clay gift on the front is from my stash and was originally a mini-ornament.
The winner of the Whimsy Sleigh Ride Sentiments is.....
