This is a picture I took last night for the first day of  100 days of scrapping. We shall see if this works : D. It is dark now, for the day has been a week long and I would up at Tuesday by the end of it lol. The day started with the idea of getting many things done, but official stuff needed to be done, then a trip to the pharmacy and grocery store. The wind started really gusting (shaking the house and alarming the cat several times). And then my day really turned on its ear when I a heard a child calling for help. The neighbors trampoline was being pushed along, and flipped over on his mother (who was okay), but everyone was in danger of being carried along again. Luckily I have some weight, so I helped them drag it to a tree where it was tied up. I was not planning on going out so had only grabbed a coat and was thoroughly chilled with all my woolens left inside.

 I made this card which I am rather fond of (details in the post below). But I did especially enjoy digging out my bin of decorative scissors and hole punches to use the heart shaped hole punch.

Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for a gander at more crafty places.

Trampolines are a nightmare in high winds, our boys had one and we pegged it down so hard, it was hard to shift it when its time was up!! Love that card, the pouring hearts are gorgeous.

Hi there. Glad you were around when help was needed - well done. A scrapbook page day - is that the challenge? Oh my... I feel quite faint!
Take care. God bless.

Gawd Sally, thank goodness you were around to help! Really wish the overall weather would turn for the better now, we all seem to be a bit under it. Love the card, love the idea of you using long owned equipment!

Wow, pleased everyone ended up safe. It sounds a bit like something from the Wizard of OZ with all that wind. The card is lovely. I have lots of those scissors and though I don't use them very often now they are useful when you want a fancy edge. Have a lovely, if not belated woyww, Angela x17x

The wind has been horrible here too and even my 200# risked being blown over on Wednesday. My poor cat thought hell hounds were descending and laid in the hall mewling before I stuck her in the closet. Nice looking layout. I love your card too! Isn't it fun to revisit with old tools and papers...that is why I am a hoarder...I can't stand to part with anything! Have a great weekend. Vickie #8

What a frightening moment for all involved - lucky that you heard the child.

Your card is gorgeous and so fun. That perfectly sums up tea for me :)

Sorry I'm late - hope you are having a good week.
