To all of you FSS Hoppers and My DT members, I am so sorry I couldn't be up and running in time for the hop. I have been without Power since Wednesday because of TWO tornadoes touching down within 3 miles of my house on two separate days. There was so much damage here in Schuylkill County that I'm really surprised that the power is back on in only three days. I am so grateful that my home and family had been spared and that no one was killed here in PA.
I am such an optimist and was certain we'd have the power back before post time. But, I'm also a procrastinator so my card wasn't made as of Wednesday when we lost power. When it still wasn't back by Friday evening, I literally cut out and made my card with a flashlight under my chin. So, you will not see the usual hand stitching that I always do. I was ready to post it in the middle of the night if my lights came back on, but no luck.
I'm going to keep this short and sweet since the lights are flickering again.
My card was made using one of the fabulous Pre-colored images from Fred She Said. This image comes as a Digi or pre-colored in many different colors. I was so grateful that I had this image already printed out and didn't have to color anything with a flashlight. That would have been a nightmare. Besides, Tracey does such a fabulous job of digitally coloring her images that she has me spoiled.
The card was inspired by a sketch at Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog. My papers are all retired papers from Close to my Heart.
So, those of you that are just hopping now, hopefully you came from Darsie's blog. My word for you is It. Your next stop along the way will be Marlena' Blog.
If you just happened upon my blog, please start here with Tracey-Lynn's blog, and collect all the words along the way to win a prize.
Details on any of the other blogs. I need to post this quickly.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY to you All!!!
