Challenge #40 At Joans Garden

Hi All, sorry I missed last weeks challenge with Hurricane Sandy hitting our area hard, it has been a stressful week. Luckily we only lost power for
4-5 days, others in our area have lost EVERYTHING, some areas look like a  war zone, so very sad. And luckily we got our power back just as it got cold out, so we did not suffer as bad as others, and we also had a generator, after Hurricane Irene hit here last year, we learned our lesson then, we gassed our cars full the day before and stocked up on what we could, and would need, and I am so glad we did, some folks were waiting in the gas line for 4 hours just to get gas for their generators.
So for us at least the roughest is over, but others have so much to endure. Even my daughter, she works 2 jobs to make ends meet and both her jobs were closed due to no power, no work, no pay, so some how and in some form it did effect us all in this area. Saying many prayers for all those in need!!!

On to brighter notes, for this weeks challenge, maybe I will even be able to make more than 1 entry, that would be a first.

So here is my first entry For Joan's weekly challenge #40, some of if not all products I have used I got at Joan's Gardens or they can be found there, if not, just ask and Joan will do what she can to help you.
For the guideline's and prize for this weeks challenge, just check things out HERE at Joan's Gardens.

And of course we all get some of our inspiration from Selma, from Selma's Stamping Corner, and her sample card for the challenge can be found HERE.  

I have not listed what I use, but if you have a question, just ask and I will try and get right back to you.
And THANKS for stopping by.
