Gobble Gobble Gobble

Hello Bloggers!

 For those of you with kids, you'll know that after you've given birth, something happens to you: your brain turns to mush, you can barely think beyond the next nappy change and the ability to think straight almost completely disappears.

And this is why I like the Casology challenge. It makes me use my brain.  Since I'm not working, card challenges are my way of using my brain to think about something else,  besides what to feed the kids, when I'll next clean the bathroom and how I'm going to get that damn piece of lego out of my son's nose!

This week the cue word is:

Of course 'gobble' immediately sums up images of turkeys or food. Since I'm in Australia and we obviously don't celebrate Thanksgiving, the turkey option was pretty much out. So I came up with this:

Hmmmmm - gobbledygook. I even checked the spelling on Wikipedia just to make sure it had 'gobble' in there! That cute little robot is from Birdie Brown digital stamps and you can find him here. I coloured him with Copics and the die cut is from Kaisercraft. The speech bubble is Hero Arts (which I've used in the last 3 challenges...getting bored of it yet?!)

Well, that's my brain used for today....there's practically steam coming out of my ears I had to think so hard! Hopefully that's a good thing.

Thanks for popping by,
