Hot Dog Express

I have nothing new to announce. My big job announcement may have blown up in my face late yesterday. I am down, depressed. I really don't know what to do.

Lucky, I had a swap deadline to deal with, so I was able to get my mind off of my problems, for a least a little while. I signed up for a House Mouse swap over on Splitcoast, because I love the images and like to see what others do with these images.

This particular image I chose to use is called "Hot Dog Express" from 1988. Oh, how I'd like to go back to 1988. I doubt if I'd go into education, knowing what I know now. Anyway, this was an oldie, but goodie, House Mouse image that I found in Sedona in January. I just had to have it, because we were just days away from getting Sloopy.

Anyway, I decided that since I am so layout challenged, I would force myself to make 6 different cards using the same image but with different layouts. I'm actually pleased with my efforts, and felt it was better use of my time than to just mindlessly create six cards that were all the same.

So, nothing new to report. Just that, I have no clue what I'll be doing in two weeks, in a month, in a year, or in two years, or the next 15 years. All I know is that something has to give. I think this week though, I've learned that, "you can never go back."

Wow! Each and everyone of these cards are beautiful. I love that you made 6 different looking cards using the same stamp and products.

Such a cute card! I love the House Mouse stamps, too! I just stumbled across your card, and thought I'd tell you that my husband and I are both OSU alumni! So, naturally, we're both big Buckeye fans, too!
