Wow what a day we had on Monday.  It started and ended with just rain – which we desperately needed – I think it has been several weeks since we had any.  But the afternoon brought Tornado Warnings and sirens sounding – I think they went off at least 6 different times.  A reported tornado came through near hear in Towne Lake Hills South and Deer Run and then further north in Holly Springs.  My Mother-in-law had some of her trees fall over to the neighbors house and car.  And her power was out for a while.  I was out at the grocery store and just getting home as it all came through – but I didn’t know that was what was happening.  I had to take Tyler’s car so I parked in the driveway and I was debating on the best way to get the groceries out and not have them get more soaked than what they already were.  Then the wind all of a sudden was so fierce I just ran out of the car into the garage and shut it real quick.  I left all the groceries and went to the tv to see what was going on.  A tornado warning and it was right in our area.  A few minutes later it was past us and at the end of our drive way a purple kiddie swimming pool.  Not sure where it came from there aren’t any little kids on our street so who knows.  But no damage here – limbs down and a roof shingle was in the back yard – not sure if it is ours – we didn’t see anything on a brief look at the roof – it could have come from Deer Run or TLHS.  Anyway – not the day that we planned – we didn’t go apple picking like we had hoped.  But all my boys were here at home so I didn’t have to worry about them.  So enough about that.

It is Tuesday and another Color Challenge!  The Utah Diva’s Color Challenge and we are on week #52.   Here is the inspiration picture for this week –

I really like this color combination – some fun happy colors.  I decided to go with a sketch that I found in a paper crafting magazine.

The picture isn’t the best – sorry about that.  It is actually a pretty quick card to make.  The base is Cherry Cobbler.  Then  a panel of Whisper White – instead of centering it on the card it is aligned with the bottom left corner.  I stamped a greeting at the top.  Then I punched circles of Designer Series Paper using my 1-1/4″ Circle punch – Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron, Peach Parfait, and Wild Wasabi.  Then I decided to get out my Bitty Buttons and the Itty Bitty Punch pack and add little buttons to each of the circles.  I used all four shapes.

I’ll be back with the rest of the Mini Cards tomorrow.
