DDC #19 "Noah's Ark" 2 by 2

What a week it has been! We had a massive storm hit us Last Friday night 6/29/12 it was called a Super Derecho and we had winds reaching 80mph, with hardly any warning other than server thunderstorm warnings. It was after dark when the storm hit and we could hear the winds howling, it was scary, We lost power for 3 days with temps reaching 104-107 during the day. Some people in our area lost power till Sat and Sun 7/7-7/8 (9 days) with high temps it was surely a test of faith!
Our son and his family were ones that lost power all week, so we did alot of babysitting cause the daycare didn't have power either, unfortunately he also lost all his food in his fridge and deep freezer, over $500 worth, he had no way to get a generator or even barrow one. He works at a hotel and thankfully they offered him, his wife and the baby a comp room so they were able to be in the AC and shower and sleep in comfort.
So that was my week in a nutshell, I do hope that where you are that you had a
better week and did not experience any of this storm as it was pretty wide spread!

This heat wave has well wore out its welcome, we are ready for some cooler temps!

Now onto this week's challenge! This week our theme is "Noah's Ark 2 by 2"
(2 of something on your creation - it does NOT have to be animal theme as long as we see 2 of something on your project)
We as DT this week "Teamed" up in pairs and chose a Digi Darla image that each team would do, It was great fun seeing what each one of us would do with the same image!

Vicky and I teamed up and this in my card, be sure to stop on over to her BLOG and see
 what she did with this great image!
"Digi Darla's Hungry Olie". I took the image and mirrored it and created 2, colored with prisma color pencils then blended with OMS, I chalked the sand at the bottom of the ocean and the chalked the blue water in the background. I added some starfish gems and distressed the embossed background paper, added some ribbon and a couple pearls.

Thanks for stopping by!

God Bless
