Malfunction


Stephanie Speck: But you can't die. You're a machine.
Number 5: No.
Stephanie Speck: No, you're not a machine?
Number 5: Yes.
Stephanie Speck: Yes, you are, or yes, you're not?
Number 5: Yes.
Stephanie Speck: Yes, WHAT?
Number 5: Yes, not.
Stephanie Speck: Talk about a malfunction.


Ooh, another fun CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is up and this week it is all about the movies-create a clean and simple project inspired by any movie! As with most children, my boys can watch the same movie over and over and over again. The current choice is Short Circuit, from 1986. Malfunction is a a new favorite word, and I often hear it used in pretty funny ways!

Simon Says Stamp

There is some great inspiration over on the CAS-ual Fridays Blog, and there you can find out more about the fabulous sponsor, Simon Says Stamp, as well as challenge details and rules.

  1. Reading your post, it comes to me that I've never actually seen Short Circuit. Not sure how I managed to miss that one. hmmmm... Anywho! :) CUTE card! I've frequently wondered what I'd do with a "notebook edge" punch and have skipped them for that reason- this is a great use of it! Love those simple images in bold colors!
