CASology 20 - Gobble!


This week's CASology Cue Card is Gobble!



Man, it was hard to come up with something other than turkey for this challenge! Not that turkeys are bad; in fact, they're very appropriate at this time of year, but as I mentioned last week, Canadian Thanksgiving was in October, so I don't really  need a turkey card! lol!

Pacman came up on my Google search for gobble images (don't do it unless you've got good porn filters, please. Don't ask!) I remember when Pacman was the latest thing and now it's 'retro' and 'vintage'. I suppose I am as well!

I cut a 1" circle for Pacman himself, and drew on the back of it where I wanted to cut his mouth. For the ghosts, I used my smallest 'long oval' nestability and then drew a line on the back of each so they would all be the same height and then cut with pinking shears. I stamped a row of yellow dots and placed everything on the panel. I used this Stamps of Life sentiment - I thought the repetition of Happy would evoke the repetitive blip, blip, blip you hear as Pacman moves around.

Anyway. Now it's your turn to talk Turkey. Or Gobble.

But before you do, take a look and see what the other Design Team members came up with:

Ardyth, when I saw this card the first word that came to mind was "Genius!" :) This brings back such fond childhood memories for me! LOVED Pacman! Guess that dates me a bit too, huh?! :)

donna mikasa said...

Love your take on the cue word! Made me smile because I remember PacMan quite well and he was quite a gobbler!

Happy Dance said...

One Halloween, several years ago, I made a PacMan costume for my middle son! He was a huge hit. Your card is very, very clever - absolutely love this! Might have to borrow your idea for his next birthday card!!!

Marcia K said...

It's a great card with wonderful details.

Darnell J Knauss said...

If anyone could come up with a non-turkey creation for "gobble," it would be you with that amazing brain. Great card!!

Have fun on Friday and please don't get trambled! I don't want anything badly enough to get involved in that insanity!!

Be safe!

Hmmm, your search history could be difficult to explain away! Love your colourful Pacman card - those ghosts look scared to death :)

Absolute genius! Such a great interpretation and I love the touches of glitter and repeated happy. Kinda makes me want to play a round or two of Pacman... Where did my Atari get to?

And I'm morbidly curious about what I'd find if I put gobble into Google Images. I'm resisting though. For now...

Lynn said...

Absolutely brilliant!!

Lindsey said...

Fun! I'm like you, I have no need for Thanksgiving cards now, so this is such a great idea!

Rosemary said...

You are a genius.

YAAG

...had to do a google search to find a text abbreviation for the word genius...found it!

For those of us who are texting impaired/challenged the speaking translation is You Are A Genius!

Bonnie said...

This is so clever and perfect for those boys of mine that love the electronic games. Into my CASE file. Thanks for the inspiration!

mypapercraftworld said...

Oh such memories ... what an inspired and inventive take on gobble and I love the repeated blip of happy-s! Anita :)

Lura said...

Okay - everyone has already said what I'm thinking. Your beautiful brilliant mind is, as usual, in high gear. This is the greatest and I have to case it! Also love your joy card and as I have a number of those snap embellishments (alas no JOY) I'll be working on my own take on that one as well. Thanks so much for your wonderful ideas.

Judy1223 said...

Ardyth, what a clever interpretation! I can only imagine what you found on your google search...yikes! Now I have the PacMan music in my head...fun memories, super fun card!!!

Kelly Griglione said...

OK, I did see this one earlier, and totally laughed out loud! Perfect use of the word "gobble" ... I knew you would not produce anything related to food.

Ardyth - I'm new to your blog, just now finding CAS, and this is by FAR one of my FAVORITE cards you've done. I <3 your style and your creativity. :)
