Thirteen for Tuesday but only 3 challenges for me

You know what I am talking about if you are an AI fan.
It's been a slow start to the week for me. I have been busy putting out fires so to speak and now I am baking some Black Forest brownies with DD to comfort those stress inducers. :-) What could be better? Besides, today my DD said,"you rock Mom for sharpening my pencils but even more because you saved me from that daycare/school back in 1st grade." A short term experiment that has apparently haunted her the last 8 years. FYI, she went to live with her father for the summer but one of the conditions was she had to go to a daycare while he was at work. She hated it. Fortunately, being a teacher, I had the summers off (wait I still do!) and she decided the terms of staying with him were not worth it. I can remember getting that phone call early in the morning from her father saying, "hey this isn't going to work, can you come get J?" I was in the car within five minutes speeding to the 'burg to get her. She stayed with me that summer, now referred to as "The Summer of Just Us Girls." Ah. Sigh. A wonderful memory for me. We shared some great times; going to the pool, playing outside, having picnics on the deck (less bugs), and chasing our high strung dog. God bless his curly little tail:-)
Okay, that was a rant. A little recollecting if you will. I do this for you J in the hopes that one day you can share with your 3 (she said she wants three)children. ;-) Love you girly to pieces and everyday we find/create a new memory. Sometimes it may not be the best memory but if it includes you then I am thankful. Thank you for showing me how to be more patient and teaching me that it's more enlightening to try and fit the square in the circle. ;-) Muah to you! Autism does not have us down.

Okay, on to cards. A couple challenges, 2S4Y, Caardvarks and Card Patterns.
This past weekend really inspired me to use some older paper lines so these cards are all using Sass Lass paper from last year.

Caardvarks current challenge is to make a card with a little critter. Some really cute critter cards are on display at their site. Everything from turtles to bugs! This is an Imaginsce stamp, from the Twitterpated line. I had to "snag em" as the series states, because he reminds me of Todd from Disney's Fox and Hound. I used Card Patterns #5 sketch. There are spectacular examples of this sketch on their blog. Clink the link and check them out. You won't be disappointed.



Oh, he does look like Todd and that's one of my favorite Disney movies!! Very cute card - nice job with the sketch. Thanks for playing along with us!


Love the little tabbed sentiment ... and how cute is that fox ... fabulous cards.
