Hello!! I am here today and playing along with the challenge on the Sassy Cheryl challenge blog. The challenge this week is PINK. I just love bunny images and use them all throughout the year, especially when I am making cards or anything else for my niece Zoie, she loves them as much as I do. Sassy Cheryl has some of my all time favorite bunnies too. I bought several new images a couple of weeks ago and have just now had time to sit down and color them. I love this one with the little ladybugs. After coloring everything with Copics, I went over the ladybugs with some Glossy Accents to make them really stand out and to give them a little dimension. Papers are DCWV, flowers and ribbon have been in the craft room for a while so I am not sure where they came from. Thanks for visiting me today!
I posted that I was going to try and take a Jeep full of water back home to Bradley County this weekend to donate to the homeowners and volunteers doing clean up from last week's tornado. I sent out the call and man did everyone respond. It was a last minute call too, so I wasn't sure how many people would see the email before I needed to head out. I was hoping for a full Jeep and that is what I got. One more case and I wouldn't have been able to see out of my rear view mirror. It was just amazing. Since people were bringing 2-4 cases at a time and loading them directly into the Jeep I didn't even realize how many there were until we unloaded it. I was also collecting quarters to be able to give people to use at the laundromat. Friends brought all the water that you see below,plus another dozen gallons of water that didn't make it into the picture, $125 in quarters and another $65.00 to use at my discretion. When I went to church with my parents on Sunday they announced that they were putting together baskets of personal care items to hand out. So I took the rest of the money and spent it buying razors, shaving cream and band-aids. I was also able to help assemble the baskets. Here is the water:
I have seen the destruction from tornados in person many, many times. I had been seeing the destruction online but I wasn't quite prepared for what I saw. It was so much worse. Both of the hardest hit areas there were in the school zones where I attended school. I grew up running around that neighborhood, playing with friends. There just aren't enough words. Thank you again for all the prayers and concern. Please keep praying for all the people that lost so much, including nine families that lost a loved one there and all the others that impacted throughout Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.
