Woodware Monday...

Phew- I'm glad I was able to get this posted.  Hurricane Irene has brought TONS of rain to my home and I've had a flood scare.  I hurried to a few shops to get some downspout extenders to try to keep the rain from creating a flood pool around my back stoop.  Ughhh..How stressful.  As I write this now (Saturday at 4:00 EST), I'm hoping that my quick fix solves the problem and I do not have to stay awake all night scooping water! 

The Hurricane allowed me a little time to stamp this morning -before I noticed the "flooding" dangers and I wanted to take advantage of my electricity as it may be gone in a few hours.  I was able to create this card for the Woodware USA Blog 3-2-1 challenge this week: 

3 Papers, 2 Embellishments, 1 Image

Here's what I used: 
3 Papers-I'm thinking COMPANIES "):  MME Everyday Flair 6x6 pack, Bazzill and The Paper Company

1 Image:  The sentiment was repeatedly stamped
