It's later!

I know I said I would post a card 'later' and technically, it is! LOL! It is just wearing me out keeping Blake (grandwildchild) this week! I have not got a thing done card making wise...I have like about 4 projects started and havent completed a single one. I get distracted and then have an idea I want to do and start it and get distracted again, lol! BUT I do have some cards that I posted at the Gina K release party...and first up that I am posting today is my favorite I did:


This uses Melanie's newest set 'Sporty Accessories' and is just so much fun! As usual, its packed full of goodies but I used the lockers and 'took the door off' of one and put stuff in it. Much neater locker than mine was, lol! I wanted to make it look like mine did in high school, but then ya'll would see how messy I was, haha! Plus mine had band stuff in it, lol! I dont have a clarinet stamp!! Ohhh, what a neat idea for a stamp set, musical instruments, just all kinds!! Hear that Illustrators?? LOL!! Anyways, back to the card....I wanted the black background to look like a chalkboard so kinda doodled on it with a white pencil. I did use a stampa ma jiggy thingy to line up the lockers and still got them a bit crooked, lol! What can I say, I just see thinks crooked I think...haha!

Ok, thats all for now. My daughter has found her a babysitter close to where she lives which is good really. We live about an hour apart and that's alot of driving for her to do everyday I know. Plus it wasnt suppose to be EVERYday that I kept him, LOL! Gammy (what he calls me) gets so wore out....I had been trying to walk everyday, started it last week but all this week havent done it at all and I want to get back to that. I did try with him, he dont walk, he RUNS (and hes too BIG to hold my hand he says)....I'd have to put him on a leash cause Gammy does NOT run...she would be laid out on the side of the road....roflmao.

Thanks for stoppin by and hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

You sure know how to put them together, Cat. I like all the little elements with the paper page and blackboard background. Have a great day.

Wow, I don't think I could have lined them up that well without a Stamp-a-ma-jig! Love this card, Cat. You have so many wonderful details.

Cat: I love all your cards and this beauty is no exception, but what I really come for is the down to earth, getting sidetracked, loving life posts. Every time I read a post I feel like you sent me a personal email with a card!
