Cards, Kids & Cats

Thought I would post again.

I have been working on a new arty project recently and wanted to share, but go here first and scroll:

Patty Van Dorin

This lady is a genius, if I haven't said that before. I loved her "Scrap-O-Dex" art journal a couple of years ago and always wanted to create one. So I recently bought a vintage Rolodex:

 And then I began making cards for it:

And this is what it looks like now with only 25 cards completed and inserted:

This is the most fun I have had in a while. I even bought a Rolodex card punch, Sorry, I did not take a pic of it, but it is a very small plastic squeeze punch that only punches one card at a time. At this time I am only covering both sides of the cards with assorted papers and punching the holes. Then when they are all covered, I will add stickers, quotes, embellishments and maybe even stitching. Again, after you check out Patty's blog about this you will be hooked. It's so fun!
I got the vintage rolodex on Etsy and it came with dividers and cards. The punch, I bought at Office Depot. And believe me I did NOT have to buy any paper for this! LOL

The kid part of this post is about how I now have a Grandson that is a Senior this year, a Granddaughter that began Middle School this year and I miss seeing them. Plan to go back home next May when my Grandson graduates HS. Yep! That is the Plan!

The cat part of this post?

Is my Buddy! In this pic, he has sleepy eyes since I woke him when I got up and  started taking pics of my Scrap-O-Dex! Of course I have been up since 3:00am! If I wake up and start thinking, then my brain won't let me go back to sleep! Grrrr! The trials of being a genius! LOL

I came back for some more viewing of your cards. In the first photo, I love the two top cards and just below them, I love the one in the middle of the three. I'd like to see a closeup of that because I can't tell what it's made of.
