Ribbon, Die, Felt

CAS-ual Fridays has a cool challenge...TIC TAC TOE!  I picked ribbon, dies, and felt.















   I enjoyed making this. ;) I worked hard, twisting a "swirly" ( flourish ), and letting it flow....






   I HAD a swirly.







NOW, there are leaves in its place.





Here is what happened...




My youngest looked at my SWIRLY card and said..





"Is it a bug?" she asked.




I laughed.





"No."







My second daughter asked, "Is it a guitar?"




HUH?!!!!



Followed by, "Is it a fish?"



NOOOOOO, IT - IS - JUST - A - SWIRLY!!!!!  ;)


Finally, my oldest asked, "Is it a ribbon with weird ears?"




YUP.  



THAT IS WHAT IT IS-




A RIBBON WITH WEIRD EARS. ;)   





sigh......



Notice there is a swirly missing?   





Now there are leaves in its place.





PLEASE tell me you know those are leaves. ;)

  3. Marlena, your card is darling, and I just love the story behind it! Our kids definitely don't let our egos get the best of us! LOL! I especially love the bright green and orange you used against the white background. Great card!

  4. Hilarious story! A swirly at our house is a middle school prank where someone (a bully) forces your head in a restroom toilet and flushes - EWWWWWW! Thankfully your swirly, though non-existent, isn't that! LOL Super cute card. I'd say the lesson learned here is "What the heck do kids know?" LOL Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!! Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful work!
