Grandma's gone overboard!!


It's time for another CCEE challenge, and this week Cindy (Mothermark) has decided to choose Donna - Grandma Overboard (SCS) as our Catchy Name Featured Stamper. Our instructions: "Your card must have a Grandma Overboard on it. She could have fallen out of a boat, off the stage, out of a tree, etc. Well, I chose to have her go overboard with the partyin'!! *giggle*

I owe a big thank you to Cammie for mailing me some stamped images of this happy Grandma from the Gina K set You Know You're Old When... I don't own any Grandma images, so she was a lifesaver!!

Okay, didya notice the flaming muffler on the back of the bug? My son told me that's what the card needed for this to really send Grandma overboard, so he drew it in for me, and I colored it with my copics!!

eta: In case some of you are worried about Granny's drinkin' and drivin', she's heading to a Oldies but Goodies slumber party at a friend of hers. No drivin' after drinkin' for her. Shoot, she'll probably only be able to handle one drink. The bladder ain't what it used to be and she doesn't want to spend the whole party in the ladies room. *grin*

For the sentiment, I used one of the images from the Girl Time Borders and Centers set (JustRite) with a form of the Recessed Window technique found HERE on SCS, except I used the Octagon Nestabilities Shape (Spellbinders) The card opens up to reveal the rest of the sentiment on the inside.

The panel along the middle was dry embossed with one of the new cuttlebug folders from the Organic Borders set.

The fun decorative paper is from one of my favorite companies: My Mind's Eye. It's from the Ooh La La For Her line. Love the colors!! The ribbon is red twill (May Arts), and the button is PTI. Finally, I added the Wavy Border punch by EK Success, some Dew Drops, and Ink Distressed all the edges with Antique Linen.

Now you really must stop by the CCEE Stampers blog to see what the rest of this goofy bunch has come up with. You won't be disappointed!!

Happy Stamping!!

I'll be looking for your Grandma Overboard on Speeders. It oughta be a funny show! Your son had a fabulous idea to add the turbo boost to granny's ol' jalopy. She shouldn't be drinkin' and drivin', though, Tosh. Bad idea, but a really cute card!!
I didn't have any granny images either; I was too skeered to ask the brat for images after harassing her so much lately. LOL!
