Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner!!

Smiley from millan.netI know this quote comes from the movie "Tin Cup" ... but it actually makes me think about a little charm of a movie called "Waking Ned Divine" ... if you haven't seen it, you SHOULD!! As SOON as possible!! It is one of our family favorites ... you will not be sorry ...

But, in actuality, the reason I used that as the title for today's blog post is because this is how I feel ... still ... even three weeks after Convention is over. I'm still in the "pinch me" phase. I will be sharing a photo with you in the next couple of days of all the wonderful COOL stuff I have received as a direct result of my being chosen as a member of Stampin' Up's Artisan Design Team. This is going to be a GREAT year!!

Which brings me to this card ... once I finished it (which took me WAAYYY tooo long, by the way!), I thought to myself, "Who in the HECK would I send this to??? And for WHAT occasion??" I had seen an adorable card on the boards at Convention where the crafty creator (sorry, NO idea who made it!) made the ca-YOOTest card with a bunch of little pies on it ... hence, this card. Maybe my pie doesn't actually look like a pie, but it took me just as long to make as a real pie, I tell ya!! I sprayed the pie with a little Smooch Spritz, but you can't see it in the photo.

Now to find a BOX in which I could actually mail/send this baby ... as soon as I figure out WHO to send it to!!

It's a great looking card - and just think, not as many calories as a real pie!!

Please pass me some cherry pie! Looks just like a pie. I can even see all the cute little punched cherries. Lots of work - well worth it

It TOTALLY looks like a pie! That's the first thing I thought when I saw it! It would be great to give to a first place winner at a county fair.

It is a very fun card. I think you should send it to someone that makes wonderful pies. Surely you have a favorite aunt, church friend, neighbor, etc. that always brings delicious pies to gatherings. It is one thing to tell someone that their pies (or whatever) are delicious, but quite another to celebrate with a card! They might even make you a pie for your very own. Sorry, it won't be me...I'm only good at eating pies!!

Cindy Beach said...

Squee! You could send it to me!
I love everything about this card. The colors and layout are perfect and the pie is the ca-YOOTest!
Hugs, my friend~
