So Sorry Your House Flooded...

Aren't You Glad it Wasn't the BIG One???

This is a fun shadowbox card I made for Susan Liles after her house flooded. It's an old retired SU! set called Noah's Ark (?) and I purchased it from her! :) THANKS SUS!!

I wanted to wait until you got it to post this, and I see you've been swamped with RAK's... YEA!!! :) I'm soo glad you've gotten some really HAPPY MAIL. I hope it lifted your spirits :)

My girls played with the set the other day... one made a coaster box with this set and the other made a spinner card!! Pics to come :)
Happy HatIn celebration of the 4th, our church is doing a float with the hot air balloon theme to advertise our Vacation Bible School. Maddy learned a cute song and dance that the younger kids will do on the float and the older kids will walk alongside and hand out postcards-invites for VBS. Then in the evening, we invited some friends from church over for a BBQ dinner. They have 3 kids, one is 8 yrs. (Carly's age) and the twins are 13 yrs. One of them has been babysitting for me this summer. Then we plan to go to mom and dad's to watch fireworks on their lawn with popcorn and curl up with blankets--annual tradition. :) Hope you all enjoy the day off tomorrow!!

I love this card! I've always liked Noah's Ark themed stamps and you used this one in the perfect situation ( thank goodness it wasn't bigger). The glittered bubbles are cute and the cut-outs perfect!
