AWWW The Memories

So here it is 2 a.m. and I am finally putting my MOJO aside and taking the time to post this very fun card. Don't you just love when your creativity goes wild and you honestly don't want to take the time to do lifes little necessities, like sleep, eat, take care of the kids, YEA, ya'll know what I'm talking about. Can I get an AMEN?

Let's move on to this card shall we? These stamps (checkers, chinese checkers and parcheesi) by Karen Lockhart remind me of my childhood so I wanted to give them a vintage feel. After stamping them, coloring and cutting them out, I inked the edges a bit, but not too much. I didn't want to ruin the coloring. Check out the Teeny Little Checkers!!! Those were created by using my smallest hole punch and scrap pieces of paper, I then glued the little checkers onto the board. Now look closely at the Blue background Designer Paper and notice that it has a vintage childhood motif going on. How cool is that? It is called Kazoo Kids by K&Co, as are the pieces of chipboard. You know all of those extra buttons that come with pants and sweaters? Well this is exactly what they are for!!!
