So, why didn't I sleep well last night?? Well, recently I received my new registration and tags for my vehicle. I had the paper that had the little tag sticker and perforated registration paperwork in my purse. Yesterday I had to run into town to the post office and bank. On my way out the door, I took the sticker tag off the registration paperwork and put it on my plate on my vehicle. Sounds good, so far, right? Well, at some point in my very short trip to the two stops I had, I LOST the paper registration!!! I could not believe it! I tore this place apart, and even dug through yesterdays garbage looking for it (EEEEEWWWW!). I used the bank drive thru window, so I know I didn't leave it there. I took a quick trip up and down the street this morning thinking I may have dropped it on the ground while getting out of the car. Let me tell you, that probably looked pretty funny.........me in my way-too-big Mickey Mouse thermal pj pants, a hoodie and a pair of shoes too big for my feet (my sons) tromping through the frosty grass, staring at the ground...... The neighbors probably thought I had lost my mind. Anyhow, that paper was not anywhere!
So, in the house I go, quickly tossing the hoodie and too-big shoes aside to run upstairs and put on some clothes....you know, the kind you can actually be seen in public in, i.e. blue jeans and a sweatshirt. hahahah!
Off to the post office I go, swearing at myself under my breath the entire way. I walk up to the counter, the lady looks at me and says, "Can I help you?", so I say, "I was in here yesterday afternoon and I think I left......" at which point she interrupts and say, "OH! Yeah! Your registration!!! Yes, yes.......the mailman has it and is going to leave it in your box today!".
I guess I should try to get more sleep, huh??
Okay - enough story-time from me.......on to crafty stuff! Today I decided to try to get my fingers moving again (that cold weather this morning had them stiff as boards!). I found a Sketch Challenge and Color Challenge that I have combined on this card, plus you receive some free svg's today! :0)
Here is the color challenge photo that I picked up over at Play Date Cafe Challenge. This is Challenge #62. I missed the deadline to enter, but it was still a fun Valentine color scheme for me to play with!
For my papers, I used Stampin Up colors, Regal Rose, Kraft and Rose Red. The digi image is from Tiddly Inks. The swirly hearts svg is your freebie today! The file contains the element as shown on my card, a card front for a 5x5 card base, and a card front for an A2 card base.
I used my EK Success scalloped border punch, some hemp twine, and three Cuttlebug embossing folders on this: Swiss Dots, D'Vine Swirls and Bloom Dots. Some lighting inking on the edges helped give each layer definition.
For the sketch, I used the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge #83.
I just found them this week, and I love their sketches, so far! They certainly have helped me keep motivating!
