Stamping 411 Saturday

2-18-11 sketchSlice of Life  








Well, it is still Saturday. I started this card this morning and then I got the phone call. The call told me that a water pipe in our church had broken and the church was 2 inches deep in water! I, along with a few other people spent the rest of the morning pulling up sopped carpet and floor tiles, and wet vacuuming up all the water standing on the subfloor. What a mess! Fortunately it was discovered this morning and not tomorrow morning just before Sunday School. Fortunately also it was discovered before the water ran into the sanctuary and soaked that carpet.

 I finally got back to making this card tonight. I just received this Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and the Pacific Point card stock this afternoon so incorporated them into my design. I am more of a pastels person but do love the Pacific Point color. I used the birthday cake and candle stamps from the Slice of Live Level 1 Hostess set from the Occasions mini catalog.

 In the middle of typing this blog post, our power went out. What a day! I am participating in a post-a-day contest and sure hope the power comes back on soon. Fortunately, my lap-top computer is all charged up so I can still type but our internet connection is out . (The power did come back on at 10:15 pm so I got lucky!)

 Thanks for visiting today. I hope you enjoyed a virtual cup of coffee or tea with me while you were here. Leave a comment as to what your favorite flavor of tea or coffee is. My choice is non-fat, decaf mochas with almond or mint or toffee syrups. Yeah, I know…why bother if I am drinking non-fat and decaf. LOL!

Happy Stamping,
