My heart goes out to the residents of the Jersey shore (where we frequently vacation and know many people with homes there). There was massive destruction to property as the ocean and the bay actually met...the news coverage is unnerving, so very sad. Boardwalks and amusement rides have been washed out to sea, boats and decks and docks are strewn around on roadsides and in random yards, the streets are still rivers and homes are submerged. It didn't help that there was a full moon and high tide the night the storm arrived. It will take a long time to recover and rebuild...my heart goes out to all affected.
So, with lots of time off and anxiety running high amongst my younger ones (too much TV news can be a bad thing!), we broke out my stamping supplies and made some fun cards as the rain pelted the windows, the winds howled, and the lights flickered. We turned up the music and made a happy, creative, inky mess of the kitchen table! Thank heavens for card making!
I was able to make two Christmas cards that I hope to send in for the Caring Hearts Card Drive. Once again, I was playing with my Papertrey Ink wreath stamps.
I really like this clean design and hope to make more cards like this in the coming days.
In the midst of the storm recovery we have lots going on...I just found out my sister-in-law is on her way to the hospital in labor, and my brother and his family (who have been on vacation in Disney) just found out their flight was cancelled and are stuck there for several more days. Never a dull moment, it seems!
Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your visit and all your well wishes more than you know!
