I have to uphold the Christmas morning tradition by making and bringing a Cheese Wreath (recipe below). Picture a family-sized donut made of biscuit dough, baked like monkey bread so that there are pieces of biscuits to tear off when finished cooking. This special donut's frosting is a good portion of creamy melted cheese, topped with sprink;les of bacon (a whole pound, to be exact). Not exactly cholesterol free (or fat free or carb free or free anything!) but yummy good!
I made a Z-fold card with a slanted top, although for my card I filled in the back of the card. I printed and mirror image printed my digi in three sizes. I stayed with a violet and icy light teal color scheme for the wintry look, using Copics BV00, BG10, YG09, R29, C3 and 100 (black), The bright green, red and black were for the ants' bodies, boots, mittens and hats.
The ants are Santa's secret weapons, you know. How else can he get ALL those presents into his sack in time to deliver them? We all know ants are the busiest, most organized creatures on the planet (except for my boss). So when you hear the word elves, think ants!
As I created this card, that darn @#!*# song about the ants go marching kept marching through my head, so I incorporated it into the sentiment. As you open this Z-fold card, the entire sentiment reads:
"The ants go marching two by two, the little one shouts, 'Merry Christmas to you!' and they all go marching..." HA! Now you try to get it out of your head! I tell you, it's a killer!
So worry not, children, the "elves" are on the job.
Now it's your turn to get to work at the Hoedown and make your challenge card for this week! See you with your dancin' shoes on!
