I was making a cute little piñata card for Cinco de Mayo when I realized that most holidays are not, in fact, pagan or Christian or anything else - they are just candy vectors for kids. It's fall? Let's dress up and ask strangers for candy. Spring? Let's see... Oh - I know - a large rabbit can hide candy for us in eggs. Because everyone know bunnies lay eggs, right? Oh here's one - let's whack a donkey with a bat till candy falls out!!
Come on people, I think we all know no adult came up with these plots. The same crowd that brought you the hot lava game and banana fana fo fana is in charge of your vacation days. So be nice to the little buggers.
So speaking of whacking a donkey till candy comes out....
I inked up the little piñata from Cumpleanos in Versamark and then striped him with the new Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Tangerine Tango embossing powders so he looked like the little pinatas we had at virtually every birthday party I went to when I was little.
I dangled him from some clear tinsel trim, and punched out 1" circles from Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo to go behind the oval. To make him stand out a bit, I outlined him with a Versamarker. The greeting is from Something to Celebrate.
I hope you agree that he's way too cute to hit with a stick! You'll just have to get your candy at Walgreen's!
