Imagine ... That

Pin It

Happy Monday! So today is "Do A Grouch A Favor Day." How kewl is that? So, do me a favor ...

Today's card was created using a chipboard heart, a bit of natural jute, some unidentified patterned paper, and a Heidi Swapp clear stamp. Oh. And acrylic paint, Crackle Medium, and white embossing powder. Easy-peasy! For all the deets, check out the supply list, below.

So, this weekend Sheila and I went to her son's soccer game. While we were walking through the dozens of soccer fields to find Reid's game, Sheila noticed a girl standing by herself on one side of a playing field.

Sheila walked up to her and asked if she was all right. The girl said she was. Later, however, we noticed that the girl was in the same spot, still by herself.

Approaching her again, Sheila offered, "Would you like me to be your friend?"

The girl hesitated, gave her a v-e-r-y suspicious look and said, "Okay."

"So," Sheila asked, "Why are you standing here all alone?"

"Duh," the little girl said with great exasperation, "I'm the goalie!"
