Happy 21st to your son! That is a cute "hog" for sure. I like how you did the inside too.

Tonight I participated in a really fun Pajama party over at Paper Patch Crafts. It was a blast! Anne had challenges and games to play and despite problems with facebook we had a lot of fun. There were 3 card challenges that I participated in and I thought I would share them with you here tonight. There is plans to continue the party again tomorrow so I encourage everyone to go and join in on the fun over at the Patch!
The first card was Easter themed. We were encouraged to use pastel colors and include a chick, egg or bunny. I opted for the bunny. I used the Easter 2010 cartridge for Cricut and cut out 4 exact copies of the bunny on heavy cardstock. I then layered them together to create a faux chipboard effect.
I might add, we were given just 30 minutes to make these cards. Now, THAT is a challenge! (although, I do believe Anne allowed some extra time for everyone if they needed it)
The 2nd card had a theme that was: Wacky, Tacky and Weird. Oh my gosh...you should have seen some of the hilarity that ensued! I was laughing so hard. I myself couldn't think of anything that clever and so decided to take a literal approach. I free-handed a thumb tack and then colored it in with my copic markers. The rest is pretty much self-explanatory!
The final card was themed Funky Birthday Card. Well, I think I was still in my tacky and weird frame of mind, but here is what I threw together:
I used the Forever Young Cartridge for the glasses. They look similar to ones my mom used to wear in the late 60's...unbelievably...hers were orange though!!
So anyway, that is what I was up to this evening. It was fun. Come join us!! The birthday card challenge is still open and there are prizes to be won. Check it out! See you there. :)
