Farm Fever

My nephew had surgery on his knee last week and while he is recovering nicely it is still 4-6 weeks of staying off his feet.  Not good when you consider he is extremely athletic and used to being able to burn off all his excess energy.  I made him a simple card featruing SU's Farm Fever.  Those silly puns always crack me up and I hope he will get a chuckle out of it as well. 

I colored piggy with my Copics, used a piece of a DCWV pattern paper and a scrap of ribbon that I think I've had for four or five years that finally came in handy.  I used two punches, the scallop and the arrow is a punch that I doodled around to mimic the text in the image.

Disney Layout

My blogging friend Carol has been working on Disney layouts and since I have oodles of pictures from  the House of Mouse I figured I would gather up a bit of inspiration and get scrapping, especially since my husband is planning a return trip this coming summer if all goes well. 

Our first night was spent dining with Chef Mickey and his pals.  It was a great start to a wonderful vacation.

Ho Ho Ho???

My husband is a good sport.  This Christmas my son received a gift called MindFlex.  You use your brainwaves to control a fan motor that in-turn floats a little blue ball in the air...basic Bernoulli's principle at work.  Add to the head gear you have to wear to play the game a Santa T-shirt and you have a huge potential for a "bah humbug" kind of moment but instead Les put on the shirt Russ had picked out for him for Christmas Day and strapped on the headset for the game.  We all had a good time with the game even though it left a red mark on our foreheads where one of the sensors is located.

The paper is DCWV and the letters were cut from some chip board I had stashed away.  Santa is pieced together from a die I've had forever with a little chalk to spice him up.
