Pac Man

Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's time for a New Challenge over at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  This week we want you to show us your three shades of green.  Here is mine:



Okay, I have seen a couple Pac Man Cards made with the Monster Mash but I cannot find them to save me, lol.   I hope I did not make them the same, lol.   I rounded out the eyes, making them look in one direction, lol.  I played Pac Man by the hours when I was a teenager.  My husband said, "So cool, so retro."  And I'm like what?  No.  So 80's.  And he's like, "Yeah, retro."  OMG, I"m old enough to be retro!  When did that happen? lol.

So there are two shades of green in the designer paper alone and then the card base, lol.  I used the circle die from the Bluprints 12, and placed another circle over it and traced around it, then hand drew in the mouth.  I thought the paper was perfect for the maze.  If you do buy this set, I highly recommend the matchy dies.  They are a bit of a luxury, but it sure makes cutting them out so much easier.  I am a fussy cutter by nature but I do have to say, these coordinating dies are really spoiling me, lol.

I hope we see you in the challenge.  It's not really that hard to come up with three shades of green.  I was thinking of making a scenic card but then I saw this paper and it just came to me what it would be perfect for. lol.   Also check out the New Items in the store.

If you are waiting on an order, this could shed some light on things a bit.

WEST COAST PORTS LABOR DISPUTE IMPACTING PRODUCT AVAILABILITY

All west coast US ports have been embroiled in a longshoremen labor dispute for nine months. The work slowdowns and closures are impacting all sectors of the US economy, crafts included. The lack of supply of raw materials or finished goods is a significant issue for many of our brands at this time. As a result you may be seeing higher than usual out of stocks.

If you see Availability Dates on our website pushing out one day at a time, it is likely that the item is out of stock at the brand due to west coast port issues or the trucks are late due to numerous major winter storms on the east coast. We are working tirelessly to provide the most accurate date information possible; please be understanding if dates move or if brands are simply unable to estimate an in-stock date. We share your frustration with this situation, as do the entire manufacturing and retail segments of the US economy!

There was also an NBC news story on this situation a few weeks ago:

The card brought a smile to my face....very cute! Our first computer was a Texas Instrument unit and it had game cartridges. One of them was called "Munch Man"....much like Pac Man.

Oh my, another dispute with the dudes who unload the boats? I really like your nifty Pacman card. Pacman was never my thing, but ohmygosh---so popular in the day. You know you are old when you hear the muzak version of the songs you listened to as a teen in the elevator! EEK!

I love your masculine card. Would you let me showcase your card and share a link to your blog post in what I call Manly Monday? It's a post on my blog where I share masculine cards (of all ages) as inspiration for my readers. If you are interested, please email me a direct link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com and I will add you to the lineup for the following Monday. I hope to hear from you.
