Yesterday it was Dodge Balls over at the Teapot Tuesday Challenge. Today’s sketch with the half circle reminded me again of balls. Then on the radio the DJs were talking about deep fried jell-o balls. So that is where this card originated…..
If you follow MMTPT you probably have herd of Curt. Well yesterday he was selling his designer Dodge Balls. Must say they went pretty fast. hehe So today he just wanted you all to know he has a new supply. They will soon be ready for purchase, just need to be decorated. hehe…..my card details….
I sketched this card at my first pool. When I got home I put it on cs. Guess you could consider this a CAS one layer card. Using sharpie pens, I colored the dark bg, frame and smaller circle. With re-inkers I floated some colors on my circles. Went to set up to take the photo, tipped over a cup and out popped Curt! That crazy cow! So I just had to put him on my card and incorporate him into the story.
Today was the second day of over 100 degree heat. I think my brain is fried. Hopefully that would explain my card and story today. hehe……..Well, I will return later, off to see DD and help her with some chores.…….TFL :0)

Cathy, you are such an artist and matched with your keen sense of humor, you create the BEST cards. I always enjoy your gallery entries. You brighten my day with your cards and commentary! Keep it up!!!

Deep fried jell-o balls? Hmmm... I see Curt has his eyes on those balls, waiting for you to walk away, then in he goes! What fun!! How do you tell someone that their balls are great, without sounding... well dirty?! Cuz, Cathy, your balls are great!!! Your coloring is really great in showing the depth and roundness!!
I hope Jessica is progressing daily. Just being in her own space has got to be beneficial!
P.S. Mother Nature's air conditioning came on last night, what a relief. Now you folks get the heat!

Cathy, this is so cute!! Curt is going to make millions with ready to be painted dodge balls!! What's next? Designer golf balls, tennis balls or maybe ping pong balls - who knows where Curt's mind will go next...
