A Mixed and Shaky Week

First up our thoughts are going out to all the people in Christchurch who have been affected by Earthquake yesterday. So much devastation and upheaval to so many lives but it is amazing there has been no loss of life no doubt, and thankfully due to the timing. It certainly was an early morning wake up call with the roaring sound of the earthquake coming waking us and then the shake, the realisation of what was happening ... and then wondering where it was centred. We are 163km South of Christchurch. It must have been absolutely terrifying for people in the wider Christchurch area.

It has been a mixed week sending cards to a newly engaged couple, a new baby and sadly two bereavement cards (for people in their 50's - too young). And of course today is Father's Day.

I made the Engagement and baby card at the Embellish It Scrap Camp last weekend.
The bereavement Card is made with a Dusty Attic tree and bird bath, Martha Stewart punch and BG Periphery papers. And HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DAD.
This is a little 4 x 3" card made with Prima packaging, little mini cards (purchased at a $2 shop), 2 flowers, clock face, ribbon, Dusty Attic vines, Hambley Print rub on, pearls etc.

Thanks for visiting. Take Care

Hi Dianne, Top marks to you for your stunning cards! Im ashamed to say I didnt even make a Fathers Day card this year! Seem to have too much scrapping to catch up with these days! Love your cards and the stamped image you have used for the engagemnet card is super cute :-)
Sorry to read you have had two bereavements :-(
Hope this week is a better one!
