Makeesha's challenge

What else can you do when you are stuck at home due to flooding, watching the storm drain out the back slowly encroaching on your home and watching water drip from the roof? Stamp. So far we have had 350mm in the last 24hrs. At least we haven't lost power (touch wood).

This photo is pre king tide at about 7am this morning. And this what it should look like...
I am still home on flood leave (thank you Queensland Health) and thought I would give Makeesha's challenge a go. Here is the sketch
And here is my take on it. Sort of an Autumn card...maybe the weather inspired me.
This is the second card where I have used these colours for today. I believe one of them is groovy guava which intrigues me because I have never brought that colour so Paula or Adrianne must have given me a couple of sheets. It goes well with the new afternoon tea designer paper from the Summer mini catalogue. I have used the eastern blooms stamp set along with the sweet serendipity salutation.

Hey Bronnie! WOW that rain certainly came down. Now I am sure you love the leave, and are thankful your house hasn't been flooded....that would be the pits! I had heard it was pretty bad there at the moment. We are booked to come over on the 21 of Feb for 9 will be interesting what the weather will be like then! Onto your it! That is a fab colour combo, that I just wouldn't think of, but you have made it really stunning! I love it. So glad you managed to play along! Take care and stay dry! Love Keesh x
