You have brains in your head...

... although mine are sometimes on a coffee break! Hello everyone! Yes, this is the second post for Sunday, only because I want to enter the Mojo Monday 103 Contest before it's too late. And I almost missed the deadline!

I was struggling with what stamp to use for this sketch... mulling over a text stamp...when the light bulb turned on and I reached for my new The Places You'll Go stamp set from Taylored Expressions. By golly, I think it's sold out as I don't see it on the website. No wonder... who doesn't love Dr. Seuss! I'm sure she'll get more in soon.

I also used the corresponding Key Ingredients Kit, which also appears to be sold out. I'm tellin' ya, you have to be quick when Taylor releases new stamp sets and Key Ingredients kits... especially the kits. She'll order more stamp sets, but once the kits are gone, they are gone!

My card turned out a little (ahem) busy (*smile*), but that's how I feel about driving here in California. (LOL!) The stitching was a last-minute decision designed to break things up a bit. The image is colored with my Copics. I used my white gel pen to color the snow and draw the lines in the road.

Thankfully, it's been cooler today... only around 80... so I haven't suffered too much without a/c, especially with my trusty fan in tow, but I'm looking forward to seeing the a/c repairman arrive tomorrow. I might just run out the door and give him a hug! No wait, that might scare him off... hee hee.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. It's back to work tomorrow, but, as they old saying goes... I Owe, I Owe, it's Off to Work I Go!

Have a wonderful day!
