This is the card I made for my hubby for our anniversary; that pig reminds me of someone...hmmm...who would eat "most" of the chocolate and save 1 piece for their significant other? Hmmm...not me - no I would NOT do that.
Fine, fine - if it was chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate and caramel - it would be GONE!!!
As you can tell; I added lots of layers to this card...7 layers on top of the main card! WHOA...but hey, it fit in the envelope, so it was good to go!
The pig is from High Hopes; my first order from them. The inside of the card says "Hogs & Kisses"; kinda cute. I ordered the stamps mounted; next time I'll order unmounted - much cheaper and easier to store. I'm really digging unmounted stamps!
The base card is Cameo Coral layered with Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Cameo Coral again. The main image is stamped on Whisper White and colored with copics, spica glitter pens and SU markers. The main image is layered onto Cameo Coral, Real Red and Chocolate Chip and all are distressed greatly around the edges (click on the image to see the card up close). The Spica glitter pens add lots of glitter, but you can't really see it in the photo. Pretty sparkly IRL!! Added some hugs & kisses ribbon, 3 brads in the corner and it's good to go. Oh yeah, added lots of sponging around my little piggy. Our oldest was watching me and she said "that's so cool; do you want it to look dirty, cause it sure does" - LOL! Kids always speak the truth...until they become teenagers - HA!!
On a personal note, our little man has been sick since Monday morning; he's running 101-102 temp., today is the first day I've been able to get it to "normal" for any length of time. I only accomplished that by alternating Motrin and Tylenol. My DH is self-employed, so fortunately he can usually take the kids with him; but today, our little man's eyes were all swollen and he was M-I-S-E-R-A-B-L-E!!! He asked me to stay home with him...sometimes being a working mom really is rotten! BUT, I made the right choice and stayed home with him - I'm glad I did!
Hope none of you have caught the nasty flu, viral infections, congestion or other 'gunk' running around!
Have a great week; thanks for peeking in! ~M.
