WE had softball size hail this week.  We lost our roof, skylight, two windows, one truck, one fence, all the plants I just planted the day before, the beautiful things we put out to enrich the yard, etc.  There are no leaves on the trees.  It's a mess.  They confirmed 3 tornadoes.  I took a picture of the one forming over us and they said it was 82 mph.  I've been through a lot of hurricanes.  I prefer those!! But it inspired me to renew beauty.

So, this is my tire swing with pretty leaves returned and I can't wait to go swing.
This is scrap paper.  All of it.  Christmas paper, Hawaiian paper, striped Easter paper, green cut grass and a tire.  The cut is on the Pop Up Neighborhood Cartridge which I've never used.  I don't know why. . 
 That's all I feel like doing.  Going out and jumping in the tire swing an flying away! 

Inside: "I never tire of you."

Thanks for stopping! 

I'm using this card in several challenges.

  10. OH MY Penny, how awful!!! Thank goodness you are OK! All that work and gone with the wink of an eye. I hope you bounce back quickly. Love your card! That tire swing is adorable and I love the striped paper, nice! Also glad you had some time to create again. All here is so-so. My Dad is as grumpy as ever, and going down hill. I am pretty tied to home. It sure gets old! Sending big hugs, Joanne.


Thank you for giving the joy of your comments. They really do make my day!
