A dear friend of mine in NC is very ill. He works at the hospital where I used to work, but his true love is farming, which he did in his spare time. He took my kids on tractor rides. He also did pig pickin's for people. That's what Southerners call barbecue--it's all pork down there, not beef. So anyway, I wanted to use this retired set from SU for his get well card. I just love this pig with his thermometer, and the sentiment! Cracks me up, but then again, I'm easily amused. So I had my set, then I had to go on what my college roomie Julia used to call a "quest". Any other year there'd be a ton of barbecue themed papers, but this year, when I need one? No way. I did find this one called Farmer's Market, which is really cute! It had one lone reference to BBQ sauce right smack in the middle of the page, so I made sure it was on the card front and visible! I used my PTI ric rac die to make some gingham ric rac and added three buttons. Hope it's not too girly. DH said, he'll like it because you made it. I know he's right. Colors are Real Red and Ballet Blue. I stamped the image on Whisper White in Palette Noir and colored with blender pens and ink pads. Hope you've enjoyed this card today--thanks for looking!
