Summer Fun

sswocsm

Happy Memorial Day Everyone !!! I hope you all have enjoyed your long weekend. I know I have been busy getting things all cleaned up,plus working in the garden and planting flowers. We have such great weather this weekend. A little to hot but would rather have this heat than the storms that is for sure.

I got some play time in and would like to show you this cutie Bildmalarna image I got. Isn't’ she a cutie ?? She has been colored with my copic’s and I have used some papers from DCWV with my cardstock from Marco’s Papers .  My one layer has been embossed with a embossing folder from Sizzix that I got from Michelle’s Scrapbooking and More. I am entering this card into the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Blog where the challenge is to use at least one layer of embossing. And of course these gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaf punch is from Nellie Snellen and I used some ribbon from my stash. I have used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and they are celebrating there 3rd birthday.

Pictures

Hello All !

First I would like to say Thank You to all that have left me comments on my last post and for all the emails.  We are all very Thankful we are all okay.

I have a few pictures of my friends house below but the first one here is why my daughter has no electric yet. If you look close it up rooted the whole tree.

This tree is laying on the power lines and there is so many worse ones so when the electric company gets to it then they will take care of this one. They said it could be Sunday before they get to it. So my daughter and family are doing what they can and are here taking showers etc.

!cid__0526111804

This next picture here is of my friend’s house in the back. They were so lucky that it never got there house, it is on the corner there but from what we can tell it hasn’t done any real damage to the house.

!cid__downsized950525012025

This is the front side. The link to the video is on my last post. This happened at 46 and 50. Thank God there were no deaths just injured and everyone is okay. Can’t say that for some animals though.

Tornado’s and JM and Hanglar

jm527sm

Hello dear friends !!!

So sorry my post is so late. It has been awful here. We have had tornado’s and such bad storms. I have never prayed so hard in my life.

If you click on this link you will see what we have had. I live in a mobile home and I was very lucky to still have my home. Some of these people weren’t so  lucky. My friend’s house was right in the middle of this mess here and they still have there home but  all the tree’s are down. Horse’s were took in not one but 2 storms only a few hours apart. Cows were even put in tree’s.  I have never seen anything like this so close to home before and I Thank God we are all okay. I just got power but my daughter is not so lucky they are still out of power it has been 2 1/2 days for them.  So I probably won’t be around much for a few days, for now is the time to pitch in and help those who are in need.  Lots and lots of work to do.

So I am making a fast post of my card for Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge Blog today. The theme is Friends by my dear teamie Jacqui.

I used these cute Tilda’s papers from K&Co. and I used some dies from My Favorite Things. Ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl. and I used the ticket sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks for stopping bye and again so sorry this is late in posting. Please pray for all these people here who are in need of your prayers. I know this happens all the time but I have never had it so close to me before and I never want to go through this again. Sending Big Hugs
