Figgy Pudding

Please note: I have two blog posts today. This {PIN}Spirational Challenges one and the Twisted Tuesday Challenges one that follows it. I hope you'll check them both out.

I remember as a young child singing the song We Wish You A Merry Christmas. We always sang it with such enthusiasm. Even the second verse...

♪♪ Oh bring us a figgy pudding
Oh bring us a figgy pudding
Oh bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer. ♪♪

I will admit, I had no idea then what figgy pudding is. In fact, until I saw this week's {PIN}Spirational Challenges photo and read the design team comments about it, I had no idea what figgy pudding is. LOL!

Now I know....

Isn't it pretty?

That's the photo for this week's {PIN}Spirational Challenge.

November 6 - 12

The sponsor this week is:

Not only is Beccy's Place provided a great prize to a lucky participant, they also provided a great image for the design team to use. THANK YOU, Beccy's Place!!!

Here's my card:

I was so excited when I discovered a random piece of Christmas designer paper in my scrap file (it was given to me by my sister) that had the word FIGGY PUDDING on it. How cool is that?!?!?! So I trimmed the words out and put them on the card.

Then, on the inside of my card, I used a bit more of that same designer paper.

I hope you'll be {PIN}spired and play along with this week's {PIN}Spirational Challenge! And remember, Deanne is looking for a few more design team members, so if you're interested in being considered for a position, all you need to do is put a "DT" after your name when you enter the challenge.

Great card and so cute! My question is though, what on earth ever possessed you to buy a piece of paper with 'figgy cake' on it... and isn't it a hoot how you could use it here.
