A little late getting this up....

I was SUPPOSE to have this card here on my blog Wednesday for the customer blog hop for Unity Stamp Company....I even got it uploaded to SCS, and then completely forgot about my blog...how utterly brain dead of me...lol. Actually, I have some kind of eye problem...I have had it before, infection in the tear duct of my eye, it makes it feel as if something is in your eye, constantly watering and making me sneeze! LOL! It makes for hard reading on blogs too or anywhere for that matter. Anyways....heres the card:


I was going for a whimsical look...did I succeed? I think I did. I dont like the green ribbon on it, I wanted some pink ribbon that I thought I had but didnt, well I did have it, but only a bit of it left! Soooo this is the only other color that really matched any of my colors I used. The challenge was to use scallops and a sketch was also used that Latisha gave us. And I almost forgot to put scallops on it, lol! I'm telling ya, my brain just isnt working lately! lmao. I even getting tickled at myself. Watching a 2yr old for a few days just really fried my brain, thats for sure...and messed my tear ducts up too, hahaha!

Well, we got another hurricane here in TX....I am far enough up from the coast that we wont get the brunt of the storm. But we are under a 'tropical storm wind watch' (never heard that one before) for tonight through late Saturday night. Even where I am they are saying to put everything away that isnt secure, that might fly around and to get candles and batteries and such cause they are expecting wide power outage. We already have those things due to the tornadoes we have around here all the time, which they also are predicting for us on Saturday. I have a brother in Houston and he says hes staying, that they have stocked up on everything, even was able to purchase a generator. They arent in a mandatory evacuation area, so I guess and hope and pray they will be fine. That also goes to all my online buds down that way....take care ya'll and hold on tight!

Thanks for stopping by and if I dont post, you will know why, lol.
