This card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #80 over at Priscilla's blog.  The sketch was interesting this week.  Added the little ribbon flags with pearls per the sketch.  There is always a choice between the clean and simple challenge or the embellished challenge.

Card Recipe:

Stamp:  Pre-Colored Digi - Emma the Caroler - Fred, She Said
Paper:  SU Candy Cane DP; SU Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue and Baja Breeze CS
Accessories:  Misc. ribbon and SU half pearls

It was fairly cool today - about mid-40's and right now it is 38 degrees.  However, next week is suppose to be in the 60's again.

I took my car into the Chrysler dealer in Springfield for an inspection, since she has so many miles now and the service book said it needed to be inspected for a few things at this many miles.  So, after the inspection, they replaced the timing belt (which included replacement of a few things, including the water pump, antifreeze spark plugs and wires, ) and during the inspection, they also found that the lower control arm bushings had split and were metal to metal (steering arms)  So, it went from a 3 figure job to a 4 figure job.  They did save the parts so that my husband could look them over and he agreed - it needed all that work.  Well, that was an expensive gynecological appointment for my car - but she is in good shape now!  Oh, by the way, the hazardous waste disposal fee for the antifreeze was $32.00 - which was more than the actual new antifreeze they put in - doesn't that seem backwards or strange?!

Well, gee, that's all the good news I have for you today.

Later Gator.
