My monthly Stampin' up! card swap over on Split Coast Stampers is due. This months theme was either Mother's Day or Graduation. I don't have any SU! stamps for either of those occasions. Ugh!! So I sorta kinda fudged it a little. This is as close as I could get:

I used Basic Black and Kraft (my go to color) cardstock with Silver Encore ink. I think it turned out pretty great! I hope those that get one like it.

Today over at AMR we had quite the scare. If you haven't heard by now, the south is being ravaged by tornadoes. Many of our members live in the path of where these storms were hitting. Well a F4 tornado (and a few smaller ones) hit the home town of our Scrap Chat Hour hostess Abby. She had posted that the storm was moving their way and that they were taking cover. After a while many of the girls in that general area popped on the board to say they were okay but after repeated requests for an update Abby hadn't answered. We were all very worried. Finally late this evening one of the gals was able to get e phone call through. Abby and her family are fine but without power. I've never felt like hugging my computer before today. I actually started crying when we got the word. I tell you about this because I want you to know what it is really like on the AMR message board. We are a family there. We care about one another. I don't think I would be as happy anywhere else on the net. Like any family, the more the merrier. Come on over and check out AMR. :)
