Gotta catch 'em all!

Here in the UK, there's a new craze sweeping the country. I believe it's big in the USA too. I won't mention the name just in case they have strict copyright rules, like Disney do, but everywhere you go at the moment you'll see people, young and not-so-young, walking intently around while staring hard at their phone screens. You see, they've gotta catch 'em all!

I've not been tempted to try the game, but I thought one of the images I keep seeing associated with it would be a quick and simple make to bring to the Snippets Playground this week. A bit of googling showed me that as well as this strange ball-ey thing, being part of it, the colours blue and yellow dominate in the logo, and pitting all that together gave me red, blue and yellow - ideal for a last minute entry to The Male Room's Red, Blue and one Other Colour challenge.

I die cut all the shapes for the thinugummyjig, and embossed the background with an Mbossabilities folder just to add a little bit of interest. Then I computer generated a sentiment that a friend's child tells me is associated with the game, and I thought was in any case a great one to use on a card (I wonder if this game will still be popular by Valentine's Day next year? It could make an interesting off-the-wall V-day card!).

All the card came from my snippets box, it's a great way to use up a handful of scraps.


  1. A brilliant card Jane, it would make a fun valentine card, a great idea.

  2. Ha, I only heard about this very recently Jane! Great idea and as Pauline says - it would make a super Valentine card, if the craze hasn't moved onto something else by then!

    Great to see you in the Playground.

  3. Well, that's definitely an up to the minute card! Fabulous. Cara x

  4. Great card Jane! Hopefully my grandsons aren't in to this game!

  5. A great idea Jane for a really fun and colourful card. We saw loads of all ages playing this game when we went to the Olympic park in London a couple of weeks ago. Barbxx

  6. Perfectly topical card, great idea. Thanks for joining us at TMR.

  7. The game's big over here too!!! But at least the kids have to walk around this time! Love your take on the challenge - this is perfect! Sorry to be so late commenting, and thanks so much for playing along with our colour challenge at The Male Room! Deborah, DT.
