Hooray!


Hey there, I made this card for CAS-ual Fridays Challenge # 25. Head over there for more details. To just add color to my stamped images, I used chalk for everything except for the little stool that I colored with prisma color pencils. I have been pretty happy with how well chalk has worked for me to add color.


I hope that you had a great weekend. I feel like we had the kind of weekend that at times might have felt much like this card; like a circus filled with craziness, fun, excitement and even tears of joy and pride for our 9 year old son, who conquered rappelling down a 30 ft wall at a Cub Scouts
Spook-O-Ree event over the weekend.


and then went and rappelled down this taller 40 ft wall


I should add that while I was VERY proud of my son the tears actually came from his Daddy! There was just something so sweet about seeing dads with their sons doing these activities; either cheering their son on or seeing them on one knee behind their son to safely guide them while doing archery and shooting bb guns. It was really amazing to see boy after boy go up the tower and with the help of the instructor each boy following instructions and as they listen you would see their feet at the egde, let their body lean back, little by little straighten their legs, start moving their feet and just like that rappel down the wall. Some didn't do it but sure gave it a fair try. Hooray! for you Ethan.
