Happy, happy Thursday, friends!!!  I "think" I'm back!!!

Wow, have I had several interesting days!!!  I thought the storms were going to be most frustrating of these days to get through, however, it was having to deal with my lights being off and on consistently.  It appears that Friday's storm did a lot of damage and Com Ed is still repairing cables and wires, removing and cutting tree branches, etc. all over the city.  So, our power had to be cut off, then turned on throughout the last day and a half in my neighborhood.   We did get some stormy weather but nothing like I'd expected until yesterday evening when we got the remnants of a tornado that hit the surrounding Chicago area.  Although my county was included in the warning, we only caught the tail end was pretty nasty in itself, but nothing like the damage to our suburban areas that took quite a hit.  I'm fortunate this time because, again, thousands of people are left without electrical power; but, so far, I'm good.  At least until they have to return to do any possible repair -- then on and off, on and off -- LOL!!!

Anyway, I hope that's the worst of it all!  And, I'm so glad to be back and my "E" is looking awfully good to me right now!!!

I do have something to share today, it's another card set using more of the flowers I'd made.  Here is a close up of the card which reads:  "God Poured Love Into Our Hearts and Sprinkled It With Kisses".

Here is a picture of the card and the matching box:

And I thought I'd do this picture of the card inside the box because I really like how it looks:

I really hope you like my card and matching box!!!

I have no idea what kind of card this will be; I thought it would make a nice wedding or anniversary card.  But the hubby thinks it'll make a great birthday card too!  I think because of all the white, it's more matrimonial.  Anyway, we'll see when an occasion comes up for me to use it.

As a mention, I'm still looking for someone to come and play with me for Showcase #12.  To date, I've only seen one contributor.  I do hope there will be more.  You still have until 8 p.m. central time tomorrow!!!

Okay, now that I'm back, hopefully, for a while I'm off to do some postponed visiting!!!

I'll be seeing you!

So happy to see you posting.. that's scary with all the storms you are having. Glad you got your electricity back. AND this card set is just breath taking, definitely a "WOW"...
I am trying to think of something to do so I can play with you, I don't want you to have to play by yourself. :-( that's no fun. I am putting on my "thinking" cap...
