I don’t know about you, but I am very rarely primed and ready to do anything, let alone rock. I follow more of a resigned and begrudging style of embracing life, to be honest. Not so my nieces and nephews. I have been spending a lot of time with them lately, and one of their favourite things to do is craft. Whether it be colouring in or drawing, making collages or cards, or a combination of all four, they really love being creative. Which is a bit of a relief. What if they were super sporty or into playing computer games? *shudders*
A couple of weekends ago, we had a few happy hours of card-making and magazine-scrap collage-making. Good fun. The kids are so good at it because they just CREATE. They don’t think too much or worry about anything other than putting paper and glue together in a design them pleases them. Bliss.
Anyway, as all good Aunties must, I had to participate in the activity – just being a casual bystander was not going to be acceptable. Can’t say I minded – what better way to spend a few hours than with little people I love, doing something I love almost as much.
So, this funny little cat card was one of my completed pieces. Made from scraps of scrapbooking paper, corrugated card and pieces cut from magazines, it came together pretty quickly. The hardest part was finding the “rock” text (which, of course, I could have just cut out from individual letters).
I like the cat’s saggy little belly and his general attitude. Who doesn’t love a tabby in a party hat? All he is missing is some cheese on a stick and he’s good to go 🙂
Hope you are primed and ready, to do whatever you need to do today –
