*Another First In A Series*

We are still in Saskatchewan visiting my Mom. My sister Heather and her daughter Rachael left this afternoon. I really hate good-byes.

We had some fun here on Tuesday night... right around suppertime a storm hit here in Regina. Water started pooling around the one side of the house, right up next to the house, and water started seeping into the basement. Bruce, Heather and Alex were outside trying to set up the pump in the driving rain while Rachael and I were working the wet vac soaking up the water as it was soaking the carpet. We did this for about an hour and then went out to dinner. This all happened again before bed. Sigh. Bruce was up on the roof yesterday and discovered that the rain gutters were full of organic material despite the assurances of the people who did the roof that the new mesh they put over the gutters would keep all that mess out. All of the water was simply spilling over the edges of the gutters instead of finding it's way to the downspouts and away from the house. We don't know for sure if this has solved the problem, but we are hopeful.

The card I am sharing today is one of the cards I've designed for my August card class at the Scrapbook Pantry. In August we are doing Sympathy Cards. We'll be using some beautiful sympathy sentiment stamps from Boxer in this class as well as some Nestabilities, ribbons, brads and some other stamps. I needed the cards to be simple and elegant.

The patterned paper is by Imaginisce.

The layout was inspired by a card I saw on ScrappnExtras. Click on her blog name to go have a look at Laura's beautiful work!
