Case Somebody

Hi Friends and Stampers,

Today is a New Challenge Day over at Loves Rubberstamps!!! 
Our New Challenge is to Case Yourself or a DT Member.  I chose this card to Case:

And this is what I came up with:
I know, it's more of an inspiration to my card, than an actual case, but I still consider it casing because when I saw her card, I knew I had to make some version of it. lol.  Laura will be adding, "Girlfriends" to the Art Impression line she is carrying in the store soon.  And I cannot wait!  I have a few more of the ones she is carrying in the store coming:
New! GORDON GOLFER Rubber Stamp Set AI People Collection from Art ImpressionsASLEEP ON THE JOB Rubber Stamp Set AI People Collection from Art ImpressionsPOWER NAPPER Rubber Stamp Set AI People Collection from Art Impressions
These are from the "People" line and they either just got in the store or are coming very soon.  I just love them!  In addition to yesterdays discussion about preorders and the timing with shipping, I also wanted to add that the weather in that part of the Country has been so extremely cold!!!  With extreme temperatures, comes electricity and Internet service outages, colds and flu's.  Plus the sheer energy and time it takes to shovel your way out of your driveway.  I am a native Californian and I cannot imagine having to do this one a daily basis for a whole season, lol.  So please be patient with Laura, she is doing the best she can and she is truly a wonderful person.  I would not stand behind her and her store if I didn't already know what a reliable and wonderful person she is.  I can however, relate to being very anxious and jumping up and down about stamps I am going to get!!! lol.   I love shopping and finding these just as much as I love using them....if not more.  And it's not like I don't have a plethora of others to use, but I just love getting knew ones.  So I can totally relate. 
So anyway, you can case anyone of the Design Team or yourself.  If you going to case anyone else, you will need to get their permission before hand.  This tends to go either way.  They are either very flattered or they definitely don't want anyone using anything or any likeness of their design.  So that part is really important.  I know everyone on the design team is going to be very flattered if you pick one of their cards. 
I remember when I was a little girl, the theatre seats were a dark red and velvet in texture.  The ceiling had twinkling stars like the night sky, the popcorn was the best ever, and all the seats were in an even row, so you had to be careful how far back you sat because you didn't want to get a really tall person in front of you, or someone with a hat!  A lot has changed these days!  We have three theatres in town that have stadium seating and so having to look around someones head is never an issue.  I love that!  I miss the stars on the ceiling though. 
Any day now, Laura is going to be adding some NEW ITEMS in the store.  She already has some boxes she NEEDS to unpack and place in the store... but her Internet has been down :(  So keep checking back!!!

We did laser tag for our son's birthday part on Saturday in our backyard.  Joe made the barriers in red and blue minecraft out of cardboard boxes and we were able to rent the laser tag guns and vests with a commando for two hours, lol.  I got a little bit carried away, lol.   Thankfully it was sunny and a little nippy, so we didn't get too hot.  We ran around and had a blast.  Now if all fitness was this fun, I could get some of this weight off, lol.  Now I must say that Joe and I do not advocate for guns but we do believe in free choice and we do believe all little boys need to get this out of their systems. lol.
Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments.
Entering in the AI Travel Challenge - my poor girlfriends and I cannot afford a vacation, so they have to go to the movies to take them to far away places. lol.
