Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday #50

Farm animals in a barn having a tea party while Cindy babysits her quarantined Chicken with the Chicken Pox. What? Follow me to Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Tea Party: Yes, I am posting it on Wednesday because my son had a band concert last night. You can participate all week. Cindy is coming up on one year of tea parties.

Yep, its true, I am finally reduced to coming in the back door. Well....I just had to bring a pig. See, Cindy said if anyone brought a pig you'd have to come in the back door and get checked for swine flu. Well, I am happy to report my party pig is A OK. Of course!

My son's best friend is turning 16 and this card works great for a teen boy.

This was also my card for Tuesday's Color Combo Challenge on Splitcoaststampers: The challenge was to make a White one layer card. So, I needed a card for my son's best friend's 16th birthday. I used fonts for this card: DB Farm Animals (for the pig), CK Huckleberry (smaller words), LD Vanilla (Pig Out) all from

How did I do it? I worked in Microsoft Publisher with text boxes. I made my first text box the size of the card front at the bottom of a blank landscape publication. I work at the bottom so there is room to fold it to make my card. Then I opened another text box and used 300 font for the pig and turned him at an angle off the side. I knotted the ribbon for a more masculine look and wrapped it around back and through the eyelet. I then used a cotton ball and blue chalk to make the sky background, rubbing the blue in certain areas.

Thank you for visiting.

Wow...your piggy beat me to the teaparty. I hope he doesn't live up to his piggy reputation and there are still some snacks left! lol

Great it.
