What to do in a hurricane....

Crafting of course. Luckily we did not lose power for any extended period of time. I was able to get caught up on a few projects of course I cannot show most of them yet but soon. This card I created for the Less is More challenge week 30. I feel like it has been forever since i have been able to participate in the challenge. Between the move and everything going on I have had no extra time until Irene decided to roll through.
So the challenge this week is "Take 3". You had to take any 3 of the previous 29 challenges and combine them into 1. I chose Week 2 " Flower or Tree", Week 16 "Butterflies" and Week 26 "Feeling Fruity -use fruit or colours"
For my card I stamped the Rose(The Stamp Man) with Black Archival ink and coloured with Promarkers. The Butterfly is from my Napkin Collage kit. I cut out 2 and layered them. The top one is mounted on white card to make it sturdier.
It felt really good to just sit and do a few hours of crafting. Of course the wind was a bit scary as it was howling most of the day today. We seemed to have skirted through Irene with only minimal damage to our fence around the house. Aside from that we were very lucky. Looks like there were a lot of people who got it really bad especially with the flooding. Mother nature seems to be in a fury lately especially since we moved back to the states. I hope she settles down soon.
Well that's about all for now. Should have some more tomorrow hopefully. Thanks for stopping in, Be safe and have a great day. Angela

Great use of the time if you ask me - hope all remains well with you and that the fence will soon be put right

Stunning card Angela.

So glad you are OK looking at pictures of the storm and various locations effected, the size of it is numbing and the damage very scary. XOXO Zoe
