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)

first....how do you deep fry JELLO balls. I made jello for the first time in my life last year at Builder's for Christ. They asked me to make the jello and I said I had never made it so they made me make it!!! Deep frying sounds impossible.
Sis, your card is soooooo awesome. Love the shading on the balls and the fact that you sketched this again without stamps. Still hard to believe we are sisters. I cannot even draw a straight line let alone a circle times 16 perfectly spaced and in military precision!!! wow!!! too cool. Love that Curt just popping up everywhere so conveniently. great job, sis. hats off to you!!!

A rare Wednesday appearance by Curt...how mooooooooving! He always brings me joy! This silly card is just perfect for this sketch, with all of those nekked balls (oops, didn't really mean that). I kind of like it when your brain is fried... Glad to see that you are back to A routine, even if it isn't yours yet. Take care of yourself...you can't help anyone else if you let yourself get run down. Hugz.
