Grab Toto, Dorothy...

Well, it was nice and stormy this evening... tornado sirens and all! Yep. I had to go down into the icky basement for a bit... I did get a load or two of laundry done, though! It was raining like crazy with just a teenie bit of hail, so I didn't figure we would get a twister... it's when there is no rain, right after buckets of hail, and no wind: that's when you worry! The sky WAS pretty green looking though [that's usually a sign, too].

I'm just glad it all happened tonight so it would not interfere with Laurie & I going to Topeka to visit Cindy. Slumber party! Then we'll go to a crop on Saturday that is being hosted by Cindy's CM lady. We'll get a bit of shopping in, have a nice dinner, and I'm sure there will be chocolate... why is that? What is the need to snack on unhealthy stuff while scrappin'?

[yes, I know that DARK chocolate is GOOD for you... why do you think it's my favorite ;) ]

Well, here is a quick & easy matchbook card I did for a recent FunShop. I used Forever and Curls & Swirls stamp sets, Mimi SWIC & cardstock, Chartruese & Burnt Umber Palette inks, VersaMagic Petunia Pink, VersaMark, Transendence Embossing Powder, Scor-Pal, scallop edge scissors, and misc. ribbon & staple. I really like how I did the sponging around the sentiment... it really looks 3-d & almost glows.

What do you think?

Oh yes, I definitely like that sponging. The color scheme is gorgeous and the card just sends out a warm and cozy message (you know, kinda like snuggling with your significant other on the couch in front of a crackling fire...)
