Addicted to CAS: Just Roll With It

Mid-afternoon today, I only had one more thing to do for school this week (yay!) - watch a YouTube video on auditing (boo!).  Then I realized that the video was 2 hours long (double boo!).  BUT...it turned out that the "video" was all talking with a few PowerPoint slides so I didn't actually have to watch - I could listen while I happened to be sitting at my craft desk (double yay!!)

So...what to work on?  I need to re-stock my stash of cards for my guys.  When they have great days or hard days, I like to have something ready.  Lately - given they are both teenagers - there seem to be more hard days than I good, and I am getting very low on cards of encouragement.

I've also had this fun Paper Smooches set calling my name.  "Scooters" isn't a set that I would normally get, but I saw this card and fell in love. ( Be sure you take time to click on that link, I promise that the card will make you grin!)  I don't actually have the cat.  It was in my cart but by the time I got the dies too, that's an expensive purchase to CASE one card!  I thought I'd try a Chubby Chum on the scooter.  I like it, but I think the cat set will go back on my wishlist because that guy's grin will lift anybody's day!

Just Roll With It

I did change this Chubby Chum up a bit.  I cut off one of his ears that was hanging down, then added a different ear so it appeared to be flapping in the wind.

My inspiration for finally creating this card is this week's Addicted to CAS.


And of course, I will add it to this week's Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge.
