Happy Thursday Everyone!! Boy am I running late today. A lot of things going on here. I am still cleaning up from another flood we had in our basement yesterday. With all the rain we have had, again we had a flood. This the second time in the last few months. In the 11 years we have been here, this has never happened before. I actually looking forward to snow, atleast then it won't flood us out (not that I really am ready for snow either but it is better than flooding). I didn't lose any of my craft items since I made sure after the last flood it was up high but I haven't be able to get to them either. I was able to get to them this p.m. so I can start creating again.

Anywho...I have a card that I had made with supplies I received from my new Stash at Our Daily Bread Designs. Today I would like to share a sneak peak of some of the new releases in November.

I made this card using the SC252 and the new releases for Our Daily Bread Designs on November 1: Christmas Verses and Blessed Christmas. The dp is from SEI and is called Christmas mint. This is really quite CAS for me! LOL!

Love your gorgeous card, Chris! So pretty! Sorry to hear of your water problems...poor girl. If it's any consolation, I've spent the week scrubbing my sun porch with bleach water and a broom and mop, after it got flooded and mold was starting to grow... ugh. Nasty stuff! Take care, and don't work too hard on things - you don't want to get sick again so soon! Hugs!

Wow is that gold embossing GORGEOUS!!! Love it and the tiny gold balls in the center of your flower.

Sorry to hear about your flooding. We had that happen to us a few years ago and I know it is not fun. Had to get a pro in to wetvac the rug and get all the moisture out. It was a nightmare!!! I will hope for better weather for you!!

Chris said...

So sorry to hear about all that water in your basement. What a lot of work (and worry!) for you. Good luck!

Sue from Oregon said...

Sorry to hear of your flooded basement. That must be so frustrating. So much effort to clean when you could be stamping darn it! Maybe you should have a basement cleaning party!

Hi Chris! Your card is beautiful. Very nicely put together. sorry to hear of your flood. I just had one myself. The pipes in the wall burst and the water went into my craft room all over the carpet and totally ruined two chest of drawers full of paper. It could have been worse. I could have been away. Perish the thought. I hope yours is okay.
God bless

This card is so gorgeous! What a beautiful poinsettia. ODBD has some truly beautiful stamps and you do amazing things with them....and that border punch too! WOW. Pretty Pretty! :) have a great day!

Tonight's my dd's slumber party. I ended up going to the dollar tree and we found these little white favor boxes and we ran them through the cuttlebug and she cut out the slumber party LiLi and taped to the front and added curly ribbon. Not much, very simple, but we had so much cleaning and getting ready to do since the girls are coming home from school with her today--EEKS! LOL - I'm sure It'll be fun though. Hugs!!
