Long time, No blogging...

Hi strangers!  I wanted to pop in and say hello to all of you.  As I mentioned in my previous posts, we've been dealing with crazy weather and it's aftermath for a while in my little town of Moore, Oklahoma.

After the May 20 tornado hit our town, we had another round of storms come through Oklahoma on May 31.  Our town was hit again, this time with extreme winds and flooding.  Our yard, which had just been cleaned, is now covered with junk again, that was blown from the piles of debris around town.  We had a few tree limbs down, but fared pretty well during the second storm.  During this time, I've been dealing with an ongoing ear-sinus-throat issue that is taking forever to go away.  I went to the doc for the second time on Thursday and now we're trying another medication.  I feel much better and for the first time in weeks, I feel like I'm getting back to normal.

I have a busy few weeks ahead with storm clean up and our annual ladies retreat at church (I am teaching 2 classes) and then hopefully things will slow down and be back to normal.

Before all this mess, I had made several cards and taken photos, so I wanted to share one with you today...

This is a pretty simple card using My Mind's Eye paper.

The only cricut cuts on the card are the brown scalloped circle and the cream colored piece with the sentiment.  They are both from Elegant Edges.

I made the rosette with a 12" x 1.5" strip of paper, scored every .25".

I totally snagged this layout from a sketch I found on Pinterest.

That's all I have for today.  I haven't been at my craft desk in several weeks due to all the junk going on.  I miss that baby!!!  I hope to have some time this week to make some thank you cards.  Crossing my fingers...
