Sunflower Thank You



Happy Thursday to you! So sorry it has taken this long to post. You know that old adage, lightning doesn't strike twice? WRONG! Early Monday morning a lightning bolt hit our home (for the second time in the last three months...) and it blew our satellite dish apart. And I do not kid when I say blew it apart... We found pieces scattered all OVER the backyard. We lost our telephone and telephone service, the dish, an alarm clock... I had no power in my scrap room! EEEKKKK... and my Cricut AND laptop took power surges... Thankfully both had built in surge protectors. I purchased a new cord for my computer today! ***Yeah, I can post!!*** And I am waiting on a replacement cord for my E2... Hopefully that will fix the problem as well!

To make things more chaotic, today we had to take dear hubs to Northern KY for a medical procedure. Prayers were answered! He is doing great and had a wonderful report! God is good all the time! Thanks to Chris Olsen over at ODBD who has been SO WONDERFUL! She has been a God send during this technologically challenged time! ***Big hugs if you are reading this Chris!***

Today's project was inspired by a lovely card in the August edition of Papercrafts. The design (by Julie Campbell) used a medallion. I decided to use the same technique to make a sunflower! It was easy and fun all at the same time! This card is also being featured over at Faithfully Yours. Please take a moment to hop over and see what other ideas Dawn has to share! Blessings to you and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Love your card. It almost looks like the dahlia fold. Sorry about your lightning strike. We are getting a dish for our new home. Pray it does not happen to us.

I like how you did the flower center.
Wow! You need to install a lightning rod!

I just love this idea. I have used it in two projects already.

So sorry for all the hassle you have been going through. I pray God keeps you and your hubs at perfect peace while you brave the storm:)
