Wowee, we are under siege with one serious thunderstorm outside tonight! We just ran out in torrential rain and rescued our lawn furniture blowing across the lawn, grabbed my daughter's poor bunny cage and brought Socks inside and praying the gusts of wind leave the trampoline and swingsets in their spots! It took dh nearly 45 minutes to find gas here today and that was after hitting 3 gas stations with the first two being "sold out". Luckily, I did grocery shopping on Sunday so we are good to go. We are carefully watching the news for updates on Irene and hoping that she doesn't gain strength, and of course, praying for all those in her path and projected path. The girls had a great first day of school today and of course are crossing fingers for "hurricane days" this week - kids!!
So how about a little sunshine? :) Today at Riley and Company Challenge blog, DT member Jovita challenged us to create a card with some sunshine - you can see the challenge blog here! I couldn't wait to ink up this new Sunflower Riley for the challenge because I love sunflowers! I love their colors and the brightness they bring to our kitchen table when dh brings them home - they look like bursts of sunshine :) I cased one of my own cards, ROFL, and used up my MFT paper pack of dsp, propped up the sunflower for some added depth and used one of my wonky nesties just for fun :)
Take a peek at the challenge blog for some more DT inspiration! Due to the intermitent weather and sporatic signals, I will be by to visit you tomorrow in between kiddie drop offs and pick ups! (School is open tomorrow, the rest of the week is a wait-and-see!)
And thank you SOOO much for the great comments on yesterdays card - I think I'll definitely try to color the image differently and maybe switch up the card layout as well - you are all AWESOME!!! x0x0xO
