Here's a picture of Hubby and Dad coming up the river to the docks just beyond our site to check that us "girls" were okay. (Hubby's standing, Dad's sitting) By the way Aunt Margie, tell Uncle Gordon that Matt still loves the boat. He and our camping neighbor talked boats because the neighbor had an old Seaswirl that was also still in amazing shape. They are really great boats. Hubby and I fished together on Saturday. Well mostly I drove the boat - yes, I have a license to do so! Although we caught a few, mostly we threw them back, which secretly makes me very happy. I'm a catch and release kind of girl. The only drawback was that Hubby sat on a bee and it stung him on the ankle. Good thing he's not allergic!
But with all that fishing, I didn't get any card making done. Instead we ran to town afterward and got mixer for margaritas so we could have a relaxing evening with Hubby playing Metroid on Wii and I finally had some time to catch up on my Creating Keepsakes and Scrapbooks Etc. issues I hadn't finished reading. Chewie went crazy when Hubby was trying to top off my drink. I think she wanted her share! On Sunday, I started making cards when the phone rang and Hubby's parents said they were going to stop by. So I quickly finished a card. Chewie was a little upset at being left in the RV when we were chatting outside, so I took Chewie for a walk (yes, she walks a leash. She's pretty good too. I just have to be patient and walk at Chewie speed - which is painfully slow at times!) and then she was ready to nap so I could visit. So I guess you can tell that I'm totally in love with this spoiled rotten cat. Well honestly, I'm totally in love with all of our spoiled rotten cats, but Chewie's the only one who is happy to go camping with us (Tigger has decided he doesn't like to have his routine interrupted so we leave him home now).
So it's not surprising that I'm so in love with this stamp that looks like Chewie that I keep gravitating to it. I needed to make a card for my nephew's birthday and Paper Player's Clean and Simple Challenge was to make a card with an animal or plant on it, so I took that as another excuse to use my Chewie stamp (although I think Chewie thinks she's human, not an animal - but we won't tell her that). It's a quick and easy card, the only problem is my camera doesn't really pick up the coloring of the stamp (silver just doesn't really photograph well with my limited skills). I drew inspiration for the layout from flipping through some sketches in my notebook. I'm pretty sure this one came from Mojo Monday, but I couldn't tell you which one anymore because I looked at so many things in my old notebook for inspiration, I'm not 100% sure anymore.
