Clearly it's...

...a clear card! ha, lol! Sorry corny I know, lol. I finally got a good picture of this card, after a ba-ga-zillion tries! And I just love this daisy from the new Eclectic Summer StampTV kit:

Clear cards are such fun to do to me. It's not really hard to cover up the inside stuff, just cut a piece of cardstock the same size as whatever you need to cover up, and then you can use that for writing anything you might choose to write on the inside. I made this one following Melissa's sketch challenge from last Thursday on StampTV, changed it just a bit is all to show more of the clear card. The daisies are stamped on the clear cardstock with StayzOn ink and then on the colored cardstock I stamped them and used a prisma pencils to color them in white and yellow. Actually a pretty quick card, except for the picture taking of it, haha!

Well, me and my sister didnt get a single card done. We just sat around and talked about old times is all. We learned that we both had a fear of our house we lived in, lol! We lived in a house that had this attic opening in the kitchen. It was always closed...I actually cannot remember a time that anybody every went UP in the attic...but one night it was just me and my sister there and we heard this sound...best way to describe...well, it sounded like somebody dragging something really heavy across the floor of the attic. Now, this attic wasnt a big ole attic, not really big enough for a person to stand up all the way in it...my Mama said it was probably a big snake (oh comfort there MOM!! haha!) But anyways, we discovered in our discussion...that when each of would come home, we always would check that little attic hole, to make sure it wasnt open or moved over with a slight opening in anyways, LOL! First thing we would do! Kelli says she still has nightmares about it...I dont have nightmares, but do remember laying awake at night thinking I heard something up there LOTS of times. And it was probably some kind of critter....I reckon....rofl.

Ok, that's it for now. I got a week of nothing to do but stamping...yay!! So hopefully Ms. Inspiration will find me! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderfully creative week!

Cat this is just gorgeous! It makes me really want to try making one of these. I remember feeling the same way about my grandparents basement when I was growing up! I finally went down there a couple of years ago, but it still creeps me out. ~chris
