Fall-To Layout #166

Spin class: Have you ever gone to a spin class with no lights, no fans, and no music?

Oh, yes. It can be done.

How do I know?

Because that's what happened this morning. I got to the gym and I noticed that many of the lights were off. The front desk guy said that some of the power was off so he wasn't going to be able to scan me in. The spin room was dark as well, but there were some people already sitting on their bikes, waiting for class to start. I was a little worried that class would be canceled, but Anna made it work. People were definitely a lot more chattier, telling dirty jokes and sharing travel stories to pass the time. It kinda makes me thankful for when we do have electricity. I got my workout in, that's all that matters. :)

Family: My cousins were going to bring their mom over to the house this afternoon. She's leaving to go back to Taiwan this weekend and hadn't had a chance to come by and see my new place until now. Like my other relatives, she gave the place rave reviews. RJ was very polite to the guests. I feel like he's on his best behavior when there are visitor, but sometimes acts like a little terror when it's just the two of us at home. Sigh. Anyway, with the guests coming over, it gave me an excuse to clean the house today. Clean house = happy Tina.

Card: Here's my take on Fall-To Layout #166. I'm glad this gave me an opportunity to use my Sizzix tag die. It's been a while since I used it. All cardstock and paper used in this card, except for the card base, was from my scrap pile.
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Blackbird, Maroon
Paper: Me & My Big Ideas- Sugarplum, K.I. Memories- Holiday Fun
Stamps: Studio G (sentiment, ornament), American Crafts- Dear Lizzy- Warbler (squiggly line),
Punch: Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch
Die: Sizzix- Tags, Scallop Combo #2 (tag)
Ribbon: Sweet Petites from A.C. Moore

P.S. Happy Veterans Day!
