Happy Tuesday, hoarding card-makers ... hope you're having a great day!
Today's card project was created for the "Signs of Peace Challenge" in the Moxie Fab World. For all of the peaceful yet challenging deets, clicky HERE ... and there's still lots of time for you to join in!
Here's my take on the challenge:
For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the mind-blowin' product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.
Sooooooo, yesterday Sheila, her crazy sister, Jill, and I decided to do a l'il mall shopping. Because she never offers, Sheila insisted that Jill drive ... in her car.
"Ya know, and pay for the gas this time?" Sheila explained.
So off we go to the Wellington mall, Jill at the wheel, driving her very own car, using her very own gas ... a major coup! Our first stop, though, was a self-service gas station because Jill "forgot" to get gas.
We waited in the car while Jill filled the tank. After filling up, we were off once again.
"Hmmmm ..., I wonder?" Jill mused aloud.
"You wonder what, Einstein?" Sheila asked.
"I'm not sure if I put the gas cap back on the car ... I know I took it off."
"Well, of course you took it off you yo-yo, otherwise you wouldn't have had to pay for the gas you didn't put in the tank."
"Are you trying to confuse me?" Jill asked.
"Well, that's no challenge. Look, just pull over and get out of the car and check to see if you've got your gas cap." Sheila said.
Sure enough, Jill had forgotten to put the gas cap back on ... she was capless!
"Now what do I do?" Jill whined.
So off we go back to the gas station to see if she left the cap there. She hadn't.
"Well, it must have fallen off your car. So, park the car and you can start walking back down the road to look for it." Sheila said. "Deb and I will look on this side of the road."
Since we were in no rush to play in traffic, we were just climbing out of the car when we saw Jill running back, gas cap in hand.
"I found it, I found it! Yippee, I found it!" Jill enthused as she skipped around to the back of the car and put the gas cap back on. We all climbed back into the car and off we went ... again.
"You know, you're awfully lucky to have found your gas cap so quickly." I commented.
"Oh, no, that wasn't my gas cap ... this one was much better." Jill replied.
"Really? How is it 'better?'" Sheila asked.
"It's better 'cuz this one locks!"
Thanks so much for spending part of your very busy day with me!
