Pinata Bash


A quick card and even quicker post for you today. We are headed north for a wicked good time this morning!

My mom's birthday was on Sunday (as well as my husband's). I usually have my kids make her a card, but this year they made Dad's cards. So, for my mom pulled out the pinata stamp. When I was 9, I had this beautiful white burro pinata for my party. It was split perfectly in half, so I hung the head on my wall. I always think of that when I see burro pinatas. SO I decided to "break" open this one and show the candy spilling out. I really like how it turned out, too, except for my un-inventive candy drawings. I'll have to keep working on it.

I hope to be able to post a little while I am gone, but it will be iffy. Have a great week!

card info: notecard, paper, images and sentiment by A Muse, pop dots, Triplus fineliner, Copic markers - honey, lemon yellow, lipstick red, salad green, Tahitian blue.

Your card is so cool!!! I love all the bright colors and your candy drawings turned out great! I must admit when I first looked at them, I had to take a closer look. They almost looked like they spelled out the word MOM.
