Bacon Appreciation Day

Hi folks,

so are you sick of Christmas yet? If you are then you are in for a treat today (well, that's questionable but...whatever).

A friend of ours has a birthday on Saturday and in recent years it has come to be referred to as "Bacon Appreciation Day". The birthday dinner consists entirely of dishes that somehow involve bacon -- yes, beverages, appetizers, entree and dessert. It's only fitting therefore that his birthday card involve bacon...

And here is this year's entry....

I've had this stamp set for a while. I won it from Totally Stampalicious and have been saving it for this particular birthday boy even though it is really more of a thanksgiving kind of set when you look at some of the sentiments that are included. But for this particular birthday, this set definitely works.

card details:

  • finished size: 5 x 6.5 inches, kraft cardstock base
  • stamped image: Farmer Hawg from Totally Stampalicious coloured with Copic Markers (RV00, RV02, R00, E04, B91, B93, B95, B97, E30, E31, E33, E34, E35, W00, W0, W1, YG63, YG67). Sky sponged with CTMH Heavenly Blue - one of these days I WILL use my of these days.
  • patterned papers: Jillibean Soup's Chicken Noodle Soup (did you see the "Old MacDonald" music score??? Perfect!!! I also have it on the inside of the card)
  • layout: Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #147

additional challenges for this card
Anyways, thanks for stopping by at this busy time of year! Hope you are all taking at least a few minutes each day to sit back, take a deep breath and ....relax.
