Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

Ah, it's Wednesday again!!! This was a very busy Wednesday for me. It starts off with the "guy" coming to fix the crack in my windshield after DH took my car to work on Sunday and a rock hit it. Did he tell me? Of course not!! We'll save that story for another day!!! LOL The time window is between 8am and 10am. Not a bad time span at all. But he came right at 8!! YIKES!!! I was hoping I had enough coffee in me to be human enough or to at least act human!!! LOL He got it repaired in a short amount of time. He did a great job and I went on my merry way cleaning. (I have stampers tomorrow and my workroom is, well lets say someone came in there and made a horrible mess!!! LOL).

Then the 1 800 Got Junk people came. This was funny. I saw their sign on a neighbors lawn and my upline (Sue *winks*) said she used them before. SO yesterday I called them and asked the guy on the phone to define "junk." Thinking that my definition of junk may be different than theirs. He asked me what I had for junk and I rattled a bunch of the items off, including computer towers that somehow managed to make their way in the garage and multiply over the years. Funny how inadimate objects can do that. He told me it was junk they'd take and they could come out the next day. Isn't that great? So they came a while after the windshield guy and took the "junk" out of the garage. This was the best way to do it. I just pointed at the "junk" and they took it. I didn't even get exhausted from all the pointing!!! LOL It's the easiest way to get rid of your junk and I highly recommend them. And now I have spaces in the garage to fill in with the stuff that is taking space where my car is suppose to go!!! It all went so smoothly that it made my day!

I then came in and did some more cleaning and then decided I wanted to play with the Split Coast sketch. I'm not overly thrilled with it and am thinking of making another one using a snowman. I know, that dreaded snowman again!!! LOL I'm just in the snowman mode here. Maybe if we got a few snowflakes . . . . LOL

For this card I used the Garden Silhouette Hostess set and the Cuddlebug folder. Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Whisper White card stock. I printed the Happy Birthday words out on the computer using the Regal Rose card stock and I punched it out. I added a little pink velvet ribbon and a couple of brads. The technique is Direct to Rubber using Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Garden Green markers. And of course I had to do sponging. You know me and that sponging!!! LOL It was a fairly quick card and a VERY fun sketch! If you have not tried one go on over to SplitCoastStampers, scroll down and on the right is the challenges for each day of the week. I have not ventured beyond Wednesday's sketch challenge. Maybe one of these days I'll try another one. It's always good to branch out and learn new things.

Thank you for stopping by,

I love this card. I think I need to play around more with sponging; it really sets this card off. I also like how you used the two CB panels. Thanks for sharing.
