Like many people we’ve been glued to the news of Cyclone Yasi, and were very relieved to hear this morning there was no loss of life and that Cairns didn’t receive the battering that was expected. Our friends and family are all well, but it’s devistating for areas such as Innisfail, Misson Beach, Tully etc as they received the full force of the cyclone, and so many people lost their homes, business’ or farms. Many farms were just recovering from Cyclone Larry 5 years ago. When I sat down to stamp today I had the stamp set “Tropical Party” (from our current Summer Mini) on my table waiting to be used, and it just didn’t seem fitting at the moment, to make a cheery tropical card. So this is what I ended up with….
A card for North Queensland….
Our Colour Spritzer Tool was perfect for this card, to add to the “messy” feel. And if you’re a little puzzled by the topless palm trees, well the trees in a cyclone basically get stripped completely of their leaves and follage. Not the prettiest card, but it seemed to fit.
Let’s hope Queensland gets a break in the weather now.
