My sister told me a few weeks ago that she had told her co-workers that the pig on this commercial is her, and how she feels when she leaves work at night. She has been putting in quite a bit of overtime, and she absolutely loves "home." In fact, I bought her a plaque for Christmas last year that said, "There's No Place Like Home -- ~Dorothy~ So, it has become a huge joke. She said that as she and a co-worker were pulling out from work last week, she put her window down and yelled at the co-worker and said, "Wee . . . Wee, Wee, Wee!" Too funny.
She lives in another state and came to my house last weekend for a visit. We had so much fun together. I enjoyed every minute of her visit. And when she got ready to leave, both of us cried. I left my hometown 22 years ago, and I still miss her! I think she will get a big kick out of this card.
I used a DCWV scalloped square card front for this card, which measures 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". I printed the sentiment on the front from my computer and layered it on a Nestabilities scalloped rectangle die cut. I made the flower myself by using one of the flowers that is a "Button" creative feature on the Paisley Cricut cartridge. (I learned how to make it here: http://community.provocraft.com/Cricut-Community_postst14198_Garden-Mums.aspx) I added lots of Stickles to the flower. I cut the stem/leaves from the Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge. (I cut the flower itself off and used just the stem.). The pig and pinwheels on the inside were cut using the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge. The square frame around the pig was cut using the Sesame Street font Cricut cartridge. I added Stickles on both the pinwheels and the frame. The flower is a Prima, layered with with a punched flower and a glittered gem (can't remember the manufacturer of the gem). The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch.
Since I put the pig on the inside of the card, I printed the remainder of the sentiment on the top half of the inside of the card. That sentiment says, "Wee . . . Wee, Wee, Wee! You'll Never Know How Much I Enjoyed Having You."
I hope you like it, and I hope my sister likes it. I'm even going to send it to her office so hopefully she can show it to her co-workers.
