So what lessons did I learn today? Jeep tires are very heavy and if you have had back surgery in the past then your probably shouldn't try to change your own tire. I was driving home this afternoon and heard a loud bang and then the car was driving weird. I pulled over into a parking lot and called Kip and told him but he was stuck at home because his car is in the shop. I did manage to get the car jacked up, the tire off the back of the Jeep and the flat off. But no matter how hard I tried, I could not lift that tire to get it back on. I hate asking for help too, but since I wasn't too far from our church, I called the office to see if anyone was there that could help me. Our youth minister sent over a couple of volunteers and they had me ready to go in just a few minutes. A million thanks to Adam and Lester for helping me out. The other lesson I learned? Don't be so stubborn and ask for help when you need it!

Shaped Card and Lessons Learned
I absolutely love this stamp, for several reasons. One, that song cracks me up, every time I hear it or sing it, I laugh a lot. I just imagine these carolers showing up and singing their little songs and then launching into this song asking for figgy pudding and then refusing to leave if they don't get it! I mean what if you are fresh out of figgy pudding? Another reason that I like it is because it is just too cute! We have three cats in our house and this stamp makes me think of them too. I won this stamp in the challenge this week with my first digi stamp that I did and posted last week. I had so much fun playing along with the Shirley's 2 Girls challenge last week that I decided to play again. The challenge is to make a shaped card. Those are challenges I normally skip, but I decided to make a scalloped circle card using my Nestabilities. I went through a couple of pieces of card stock before I was able to get one that I lined up correctly. The image was colored to look like our cats using Copic and Prisma markers. Paper is DCWV and I am not sure about the snowflake brad. This is my third stamp from Shirley's 2 Girls, and I know there will be more! They stamp great straight out of the package and they have so many cute and funny designs.
