Discovery Channel Hostage Situation Aftermath + OLW #18

Thanks for all the comments on yesterday's blog post about the Discovery Channel hostage situation! Yep, I'm okay. It was just so mind boggling to me that something like that happened so close to me. I was a little nervous about how traffic was going to be on the way to work this morning, but everything was fine. The DC was blocked off, understandably, but most of the police tape had been taken down by late this afternoon. I hope the people who work there can get back to some normalcy very soon. It must have been a traumatic experience for all of them and their families too.

Update on the card display drama. I called them on Monday to see what we could do about getting my money back. I got a response on Tuesday. They told me that I had to send the broken one back. Well, WHICH broken one? The one in the original order or the replacement? They are both broken. What are you going to do with them? Did you hear me? They are broken. I asked for some clarification, but have not gotten a response. Ok, you know what?! (*bleep*) that. I went to Office Depot this afternoon, bought a $4 tube of super glue, and did some plastic surgery (ha ha, get it? Plastic surgery? I know. ::groan::). They aren't in perfect condition, but it's the best that I can do. I just want to put the whole ordeal to rest.

For today's card, I wander over to Simplicity's one-layer Wednesday challenge. It focused on trees. I knew exactly which tree stamp I wanted to use, and with fall approaching soon, I wanted it to be a fall themed card. The Stampamajig really came in handy today. To make sure that the trees were floating, I used a border stamp and used it several times with different colors to make it look like a fall-y ground. Smart, huh? ::pats self on the back::

Stamp: Fiskars- Border-A-Plenty (dots), Hampton Art- Terrific Tree (tree), Inkadinkado- Autumn Foliage (sentiment)

Feeling the "fall" theme of this card! Great job on getting it straight! I totally cannot do that very well! Love that sentiment stamp too!
