Autumn Beauty

Good Morning! For me it is a very Great morning!  We had a snow storm here in the Northeast US last Saturday.  All in all it would not be something to write about but since it is still Autumn here the leaves had not fallen off the trees so with the added weight of the snow it was a disaster.  Tree's fell and Branches cracked off.  This caused a major electrical issue and I, unfortunately, was one of the people who suffered.  I lost my electricity Saturday around 7:00 PM and didn't get it back until last night about 5:30 PM.  Not only was it cold (Wed AM I woke up and it was 28 degrees) I had to throw out all the food in my fridge, didn't have hot water for showers, and since I work from home I spent all week bringing my computer and cell phone to relatives homes, local wifi spots (most of which were closed due to also not having power).  Since there were so many people suffering as I was everyplace (including the relatives) was mobbed and crazy.  It was so nice to watch TV last night, not having to sleep with many blankets and in warm clothes, have a nice hot shower and have coffee waiting for me.  The company I work for is happy to have me back putting more time in working than running around trying to find someplace to log in.  All in all a wonderful morning!!!!!

Since any internet time I could find had to be spent working I was not able to post my card for this weeks challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  The theme this week is Pumpkins!  I love this stamp.  It looks like a beautiful table decoration for the upcoming Thanksgiving holidays.

Becky Garrison said...

Peggy, thank you so much for playing with us at Friendship's Garden! Your card is beautiful! That said, I'm afraid your card will not qualify for any of the awards for our challenge. The main 'challenge' in our challenges is that you may NOT use a stamped image as the main focus of your project! I'd love for you to come back and visit us again, but following the intent of the challenge. Thanks again! Becky
