Well, Hurricane Irene has come and gone and we were fortunate to have no major problems. Our basement flooded, however, it is unfinished and we fully expected that to happen, so we were pretty prepared for it. As of this morning, the humidity down there was down to 65% and some areas of the floor are dry. The lower areas are still puddles, but they will be fine in a day or two between the pump and the dehumidifier. We never lost power at our house, although, MANY people did. My parents lost it all day at theirs. I don't know if they have it back this morning or not yet. We did have at least one tree down - it actually snapped in the middle and the top part fell down so we have a giant 'half-tree' in the backyard. It's kind of funny looking. Another tree is leaning A LOT, but we can't see if it broke due to the growth all around it, so it might just be forever leaning oddly or it could be broken. None of these fell anywhere near the house, though, so that's good. So, that's what happened in my neck of the woods. How about you?
I felt that this card was appropriate for today, seeing as this fun hippo could have taken this bath in our basement yesterday! HA! He is a fabulous image from 100 Proof Press! The image is called Splashing Hippo! YAY! (#5657-W) Seriously. I love him. I used some great EAD Stickers for the sentiment on this card! Love them!
I used inks as watercolors with my waterbrush to add just a bit of color to the image. I love how it makes it pop! And then I simply added some black and blue twine from The Twinery to finish it off!
I am linking this card to the following challenges:
