Wobot

If I told you how long it took me to make this card last night, you'd laugh out loud. I had "no mojo." None. Nada. I didn't have any energy either, and thus, no post yesterday. I was asleep for the night shortly after 9 p.m.

About my "no mojo" card, the stamps are cute, and regardless of the less than great card design, the four-year-old "wobot" lover who receives it will think it is very cool, particularly if it arrives in the "real" mail.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Star Spangled Blue, and Clover Meadow cardstock; Black and Clover Meadow ink pads; White Daisy Pigment ink pad; Stampendous Love Robotz and Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Basics stamp sets; Silver mini brads; Prismacolor colored pencils; Gamsol odorless mineral spirits; Blending stumps; EK Success Dotted Wave Edger punch; Black My Legacy Writer; Cuttlebug w/Spots and Dots embossing folder; 3M foam mounting tape.

When I posted Thursday, I was off to have an afternoon adventure with the little guys. The local library kicked off its summer program for children that day with Zoo Man at one of the parks. The boys loved the program and were thrilled by the opportunity to "pet" a 23-foot Burmese python. Grandma passed. From there, we went to have their photographs taken by a traveling photographer who had set up shop at a local drug store. Although they were in silly moods and not all that cooperative, I think the photos will turn out OK. Then, it was off to another park to play before eating supper at the Dairy Queen. There was a puppet show at the library that evening, too, but we were all too tired by then and happy just to hang out at home. Yesterday, I went to work very early, came home early, and as I stated previously, went to bed early. I have lots of stuff to do today and best get to it. I'll be back later with a Simple Saturday post. Between now and then, I hope your day is a good one! Later ...

What a cute card. I'm sure the recipient will absolutely love it, especially if it's one of your grandsons. I love how you used that embossing folder which totally picks up on the patterned paper.

And may I just say, that you are a fabulous grandma. That's the type of grandma I hope to be someday. I love hearing of your journeys with the boys.

Wow, really cute card. I know I say that about all your cards, but it is true. I can't imagine that this card was quick. There is a way lot of detail there.

Oh Kathi, this is absolutely, hands down a perfect card for your little guy. I can't believe this is a no mojo card, because it shows it in spades.

LOVE that you love your grandsons so much and they know it deep inside! What a foundation you are building for them.
