well, not really, but i did manage to squeeze in a little bit of play time! and since i was tagged by geeta and needed to play that, i thought i'd make playing the subject of my card. i was also working on homework for julie's class on simply great card design at my creative classroom. for the next week, we are to find inspiration and sketch ideas and notes based on it. i'm not so much of a sketch girl, so i skipped ahead to the finished card! but my grid pad has lots of notes and practice stamping on it--do you think that counts? my inspiration for this card is the way these two clear stamps from the saltbox studio are positioned in the cd case, with the jumping one above the standing one. i didn't place them that way on purpose, but it makes me think of playing leap frog every time i open the case, so i finally made it happen. *and* i hand wrote the word play, so that makes it work for the amuseaddicts weekly challenge. gotta love a three-fer!
now, for the current game of tag. it's pretty much the same words i had to write about when i was a muse guest designer last september (posted here), but i went ahead and wrote about them again for the game--a little shorter to the point this go 'round. as for who to tag? how about you!
