This is another one of the 3"x3" gift cards I made using mainly scraps of paper. The 6"x3" strip of aqua card stock used for the card base was a scrap. So was the strip of darker aqua that I ran through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. I cut it in two pieces and attached a strip to the top and one to the bottom of the card. The flower was cut from scrapbook paper using the Cricut. I attached a white Prima flower to it using an aqua brad. The leaves were stamped with Marvy Matchables' Jungle on white CS and cut out by hand. The flower and leaves were then mounted to the card using foam tape.
We had a very welcome thunderstorm yesterday which left our yards full of much needed rain. This afternoon and evening there has been a lot of damage to the east and south of us as tornadoes touched down and baseball-sized hail hit. The small town of Rice had damage to the high school, reports of multiples injuries, and people trapped in cars. Hopefully the storms have calmed down by now. Whether it's rushing wind or rushing water, Mother Nature can play havoc with our lives almost too quickly for words.
