TSSC 165

Good morning, Friends! Boy, did I sleep a little late this morning! But I just could not get myself to fall asleep last night! So, instead of tossing and turning in bed and waking my husband, I got up and played around on my iPad for a while. Then I tried again. But, I still had trouble falling asleep. I bet I only got six hours of sleep - and that includes sleeping in! I hope that I am not worthless today! I tend to feel like I have a hangover all day. I hate that feeling! Maybe the sun shining today will help!

Today's card was inspired by Mary Jo's Monday lunchtime sketch. It was another great sketch for this week so I just had to try and find time to play along. I got my color scheme from the Color Coach. As I was putting it together, I wasn't sure that I was going to like it. But I made myself finish. And, it isn't that bad! It made me get out of my "comfort zone". The colors used are Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Marina Mist and Old Olive. Well, thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
