You will not believe what kept me from stamping last night..........a bug! I'm not saying I was sick. I mean an actual bug! This has to be a first! About 6:00 pm I realize my air conditioning isn't cooling. It's getting uncomfortable in the house. I discover the outside compressor isn't coming on. Well, hubby is out of town, so I call my dad. He gives me several (time consuming) suggestions to try and remedy my situation. None of it works. So, tired and disgusted, I decide to call it a night. This morning dad comes over to try his hand with no luck. I run off the my son's baseball games while dear dad stays behind waiting for the serviceman. Turns out a bug, more precisely an earwig, had crawled between the electrodes in the compressor. I wouldn't have believed it but dad saw it with his own eyes. The serviceman was gone in about 15 minutes. I was out $72 bucks! I'm just thankful that's all it was! A new unit might have cost me some stamping supplies!
In the end it turned out that the extra time gave me the opportunity to think about card ideas for the Color Throwdown. It's their 100th challenge and they are celebrating! The girls are giving away over $1600 dollars worth of goodies! Check it out HERE and get all the details.
The final piece of this card came after I had time to think. I made my own clouds to place my sentiment. It was fun to do and I think they turned out pretty good!
