LPSC62 Your Tweet!!


I know I know.....you are probably surprised to see me posting considering I have been MIA for a FULL week!! Well first off it is Little Paper Shop Monday so I wanted to share with you the awesome sketch we have for you to try and then I will explain my absence. The challenge this week is LPSC62 and the sketch can be found here on the Little Paper Shop Blog.

For my card today I used Tweet Wishes Lucy. I paper pieced her and colored her with my copics. My dp is Quite Contrary from MME and I finished things off with a prima flower and some crystals. My border punch is the new one from SU and I used my rectangle and oval nesties to cut out my image and back panel.

So my absence.....well....after I posted my card last Monday we had two days worth of torrential rain and my entire basement flooded on Tuesday in the middle of cooking dinner for Passover. I called my hubby home in a panic when I saw the water coming in and thank goodness we were able to get all damagable items up and off the floor but we had to pump out the basement with a sump pump and then we had two shop vacs going at the same time!! Quite a mess. It was just today that I was able to come down here to kind of clean up alittle. It is still very musty down here and I get alittle queezy if I stay down here to long. So that is my story....Bar Mitzvah in less than two weeks....whoo hoo then I will  be back to my old crafting self. I just cant wait to sink my teeth into some new goodies that I just have not had a chance to use.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and come play along with the LPS challenge this week. You can win the super cute Mermaid Jena digi. Have a great day!!

Oh Ann!! So sorry to hear about your troubles! What a nightmare!! We used to get water in the basement of our old house so I feel your pain (my stamp room was down there and I used to store my paper down low - ack! Hope you get everything cleaned up and aired out in time for the big celebration!!

Also, gorgeous card as always. That's kind of a given though. ;-)
