My  card --

I'm so glad to have been able to get back in my craft room this week.  Last week was just horrible, horrible, horrible! 

 It started out all fine and dandy, I got some crafting done and then everything took a nosedive!  First, my hubs, an ER nurse and no stranger to difficult/violent patients had a not so good experience of that nature last week, which resulted in him having to once again undergo medical testing to ensure he did not contract anything from the patient.  Thankfully, yesterday in fact, he got the "all's good".   Two days later, he got sick (unrelated).  

And THEN there was Hurricane Matthew.... barreling all the way up the Atlantic and hitting central NC very hard. I was more worried about my mom and brother/family in Conway (beside Myrtle Beach) and we prepared for them to evacuate to our house (they stayed home and were fine minus losing some trees and losing power for half a day).  We also wound up fine as well, after 6-7 hours of no power and just a lot of tree branches and leaves everywhere.  We were spared the devastation that hit just 40-70 miles east and south of us, and of course in Haiti.  So in the aftermath of the storm, even as stressful as our week was, it really pales in comparison. 


I used the sketch and theme from Stamplorations for my card.

Challenge Blessings!

Great take on the sketch, love the peacock feather on the cushion shapes.
Glad you all survived Matthew, it is still sitting mid Atlantic so hasn't made it over here yet!
Thanks for joining in over at STAMPlorations. :)
