Charlotte’s Web has always been one of my very favorite books. I still have the copy I purchased at the Bookfair when I was in elementary school. It is well worn and loved. My mother covered it in clear contact paper long ago to keep it from falling apart. When I first saw this weeks theme for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge I wasn’t sure what book I would possibly base a card on, and then I remembered Charlotte & Wilber. So I went about making my card today, not even thinking to re-read the challenge post. And now I realize that the challenge was to base a card on a book and use only black, white & red as the colors as well. Oh well, so much for following the rules! But I liked my card so I am sharing it anyway.
I love that little pink pig. I think maybe that is how Wilber looked after Mrs. Zukerman gave him a buttermilk bath before going to the fair. He was the “cleanest, prettiest pig you ever saw” after all. 🙂
I doubt I will try to remake my Charlotte’s Web card in the correct color scheme for the CAS-ual Friday Challenge because I like it just the way it is. And I have a full week of projects to get done ahead of me as well. I’m looking forward to the Lawnscapings Blog Hop this Friday (9/9) and there just might be something else fun and exciting coming this weekend as well, you will all just have to stay tuned and see! But I do hope you join in the fun for Friday’s blog hop.
