A Penny Roller (kinetic) card for our very mobile grandson, Kyle :)

When I was half way done working on this, I misplaced it. This is very easy to do on 'my side of the bed.' My husband fears to venture onto my nightstand or crafting bins... (play Jaws music here.)

So I found it today and set it on the scoreboard. The cat (the big cat) stood on it, then sat on it while I had my head turned. By the time I moved her off, it was newly creased in several more places. (I love my cats I love my cats I love my cats).

Poor card looks like it's been sat on, run over, and folded up, but I finished it and am mailing it away anyhow. I even made my first amateur video to show its moving parts (below) and you will see why I don't make YouTube or any other videos.

Stamp set, pattern paper and (crumpled) card stock, white, 80# and 120# by Gina K. Designs. Stamp sets are "Life's a Beach" (isn't it though?) and "On the Move" for the sentiment. I just hand printed the letters for Kyle's name.

I saw a picture of Kyle the other day, uploaded to Facebook - so sweet! He had been swimming. He's going to be four this fall. When I asked our other grandma who lives near them to please kiss Kyle for me, all she said was, "If we can catch him." I think that explains this card.

Please - no hate mail. I really don't have a clue how to make a video, and the radio was playing in the background, Hawai'ian music. Aloha.
