A Cure For Insomnia?

Aloha good buddies,

I'm falling farther and farther behind in the SCS challenges for the weekend. I'm still on Friday night's themes....heave a sigh. Today was "Hey, let's spend hours troubleshooting the TV cable box again, cause the other 100 hours in the past 3 months really was not quite enough :(((( (lots of sadz faces). We get another new cable box tomorrow. For now, we can watch the news. YAY.

The challenge for this card is for Polly's "Things That Jump." Took some thought to come up with an idea. I worked on it a minute here, a minute there, here a minute, there a minute, everywhere a minute, minute...Old MacRosy had a farm. EEE Aye EEE Aye OH!

The only fence die I have is super thin and too dainty. Then I remembered I had a never-used fence embossing folder - Yes! I inked up some swirly hills and the grass between the fence posts on the "debossed" side of the folder so the stakes would still be white. You can see the swirls from the direct to folder with the ink :)

I stamped and cut out the sheepies, then popped them to look like they were jumping over the fence and on over the hills. Finding the sentiment was a toughie!!! But I found something online and tweaked it, then printed and die cut it out. Looking back, I wish I would have numbered each sheep, like 1,000,978 and so on... But I'm pooped from the day.

Warning: If you lack a sense of humor, only look at the first photo and do not scroll down to the second. After seeing my card... I decided to add a detail to the envelope and the card that only some people might think is me :D
