Fall-To Layout #260

Car Troubles: After spin class this morning, I went to Target to buy a tire pressure gauge for my car today and drove to my parents' house to check them.  I suppose I could have driven home to do that but a) Mom's house was on the way and b) what if I had a question?  I'd have to drive to their house anyway.  While I was checking them, I found a screw in my right rear tire!  WAH!  Dad suggested a tire place that I could check to see if they could patch it up.  Nope, no luck.  They suggested that I call the dealer to see if they could give me a new tire.  I'll have to go on my day-off tomorrow (after my reward massage) because the dealer's service desk is closed on Sunday.  Fortunately, with the current work teleworking arrangement, I don't have to drive very much these days.  I'm telling myself that this isn't something to stress over since this'll probably be covered under the warranty.  Still, blah!

Shopping: Being at Target was fun today.  In addition to the tire pressure gauge, I found some comfy capri athletic pants, athletic shorts, and earrings (all on clearance...the earrings had several clearance stickers on top of each other.  It pays to be patient!).  It'll be nice to wear these to work...whenever that'll be, given that renovations could take longer than expected.

Card: Here's my take on Fall-To Layout #260.  Super easy design with minimal supplies (and effort).  This design would be perfect if you had a variety of washi tape available, but since I only have 2 rolls, I had to improvise with strips of paper that I punched out.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Charcoal
Stamp: Hero Arts- Sending Smiles
Paper: American Crafts- Letterbox, The Goods Ceremony
Punch: EK Success- Lattice Chain border punch, We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Other: Black Sharpie Ultra Fine Point marker

Song of the day: Man in Motion from St. Elmo's Fire.  I heard this on the radio when I was driving to the gym this morning and it was stuck in my head all day.
