CASology #151


Welcome to Week 151 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


The only kid I have is a 95lb Ridgeback/Doberman mix who thinks he's a lap dog.  Oh, and I have a husband who occasionally qualifies as a kid.  No human kids for me.  For this reason  I briefly considered using a dog on my card but then thought that might be a bit predictable coming from me.  :)  Then I spent some time eyeing up a Paper Smooches goat image (because goats have kids) but couldn't figure out what to do with it.  Finally I came across the PS Teen Routine stamp set and zeroed in on the locker image which I had never inked up.  Lockers are a part of most kids' school experience and friends are super important to kids so I thought I'd merge the two for my card.

Be sure to check out all the fantastic inspiration from the DT and then play along - we want to know how "kids" inspire you!



And this week's guest designer:

Now this is a great idea! Lockers. We all had 'em. We all cleaned them on a regular basis (not so much), and stuffed them with all our 'important' stuff. Those were the days...Love this card. Reminds me of some fun times in the halls at good ol' WHS....Bev

Love this row of lockers--yes the locker, what's in it and who is near your locker are all so very important to my kids. I also thought about a goat kid, but did not have any images to match. Like how you highlighted just one locker.

Lindsey said...

What a perfect combination of elements! (Locker, padlock, combination — I crack myself up.) Like the colour combo too.

A fun 'kid' card! very creative!

Kara Lynne said...

Great idea for a "kid" card! Great job stamping those lockers so straight too! I love the "one of a kind" theme.

TOO clever Jen!!!!! I still sometimes have nightmares I am standing at my locker and have forgotten the combo.....the bell rings and I will miss class...I get to class, and it is not my class they all stare.....Argg... lockers. Yeah, I went to 3 highschools, so this happened more than once... LOL!!!

Aah! This brings back memories! Books falling on your head from lockers located above you! The joys of being short and getting the lower locker! Love how you have coloured just the one! Super card!

Oh, boy, you NAILED it with this card! Lockers are a HUGE part of a kids life...and I love the single stand-out locker, definitely one of a kind!

I have a big kid in my house, too. Sometimes I call him husband. Lol!!! I love you only colored the only one block. That makes your card extra special! Hugs, May

Jen, your card made me LOL when I first saw it! You are a genius! Oh, and you're lucky to have a goat image in your stash! I dug in my stash forever thinking I surely had some farm animals somewhere that included a goat, but NO! Guess I need to go looking for one so my animal collection is more well rounded! ;)
