Goat Old Dad!

In my defence my husband started it!

Here's the background - my husband on our weekly drive to our family's martial arts class says to me that I'm not bad for an "ol goat". I replied "oh you are soooooooooo not going to get away with that!" "I have a plan!"

He looked worried. RESULT!

Thus, the cobwebs in the cogs of my mind were blown away to accumulate another day!

Here's what I came up with - trousers inspired by Rupert Bear because he used to love Rupert Bear as a child.
In case you can't read it, it says - "DAD we aren't kidding, you're a great ol goat."
The Ol Goat and the greeting are popped up on 3-D zots - IRL it is quite dimensional. The kids are flat mounted on the card base. I think this card layout is a bit outside the box but works for a few reasons. All the images are related. There is also a three rule going on. Two images popped, one back. Two panels horizontal one vertical. Colors repeating. Offset images with the straight lines to make it visually interesting yet you get the importance of the Ol Goat with relationship to the kids. Hope you like it.
  • card size - 8.5in x 5.5in
  • cardstock - The Paper Source base, blue and red; Neenah Solar White
  • Stamps - JustRite Stamps, High Hopes Stamps
  • Ink - Memento Tuxedo black, Danube Blue
  • Copics - Old Goat - 0, W1, W3, W5, W7, B00, BG01, BG05, E35, E37, R27, R29, Y11,Y15, YR04
  • Copics - Kids- 0, C1, C3, C5, W1, W3, W5, W7, B00, BG01, BG05, G00, G14, G17, E33, E35, E37, R27, R29, Y11, Y15,

Not many differences but they are there.

I blend my backgrounds with 0 quite a bit - I just purchased B000 so I can't wait to see if that will make a different in how much I use my blender pen.

I have enjoyed your blog for some time now (finding it through SCS). I'll admit I'm more of a "lurker" (that lovely SCS term I've heard used) in that I don't leave a lot of comments. However, I left you an award on my blog and wanted to let you know. I remember your kindness WAY back when I was trying for a WICKED spot and haven't forgotten your kindness and help. Don't worry about offending me if blog awards are your thing, I just wanted you to know! Have a fantastic day!
