Call 'Waiting'

Continuing on today with more fun cards from LAD's January 2010 Monthly Mix!! I wanted to use the cute telephone from this set and make this design very whimsical:

Call Waiting

Although the design seems simple enough, the initial concept that I came up with inside my head was complicated!

I had initially tinkered with the idea that the phone must have some fun PEOPLE to go with it...that's when I thought of using the Football Player Single and the Cheerleader Girl Single!

Did you miss out on these two adorable stamps? They were released in our Summer months, if you didn't get a chance to see them, go check them out! Super cute images!

So at first, I wanted to pair the football player with the phone inside the 'thought bubble'! That didn't work out too well because the phone stamp is quite large and it would have looked kind of funny.

Then, my DH saw me struggling with the entire concept and he said to me, "Why don't you put the football guy by himself inside the thought bubble - and then put the phone next to the girl - because isn't it always the GIRL that is waiting by the phone?" I was so delighted with his idea - I really have to give him kudos for the nudge because sometimes when your idea doesn't work, it's always sooo helpful to have someone else's opinion, don't you think!! So thank you hubby and this was the final result of my card!

Here is a close-up of the football player, he is a handsome little dude:

Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy!

Have a wonderful day!
