You're Barrels of Fun


Seder (the prayers before and after dinner for Passover *Seder means Order in Hebrew*) went really well. There was one major snafu, however, the air-conditioner broke. Luckily, it wasn't too hot out, only about 75-80 degrees with a breeze. So we opened all the windows and my mom tried to stay out of the kitchen (a little difficult for her lol). My dad was running around trying to fix it and assess what was wrong and he is usually the one who leads the Seder.

SO, because my mom was cooking and my dad was trying to fix the air, I got to lead. My mom had already asked me to help my dad because there was so many people there, but I was not prepared to lead the whole thing. I think I did a pretty good job and everyone seemed to be appreciative, so all and all I think it was a success.

This morning we got someone to come out and fix the air so it is back on, it was just bad timing. My Aunt, Uncle and Cousin left this morning which gave me time to stamp. How adorable is this little piggie from The Paper Shop? I love it! Of course I colored it with Copics ( E31, YR31, YR68, C1, E33, E37, RV11 and G21). I had a little trouble getting the right color for the pig but I ended up using a combo of E31, E33, YR31, YR68, RV11 and let me just tell you, he is fully saturated with all the layers of color that I used.

I punched him out with the Scallop Punch by SU! and used my old light green EK Success 2" Punch behind the Scallop Circle to accent the focal point. The paper and ribbon are leftovers from the place cards and are from American Crafts.

This particular card was actually for a sketch challenge 147. I rarely do sketch challenges but this seemed really fun and great for this image. What'd ya think?

Enjoy!
