Tuesday Trigger: Garden Glory

At the office: I went to the main building this morning to park my car in the garage and see what damage the flood had done this past weekend. My first thought when entering the suite was "Wow, it's kinda stinky." I guess that's to be expected considering how much water was in there. I heard it was ankle deep or even more. There were multiple fans blowing throughout the office and many offices had furniture moved away from the walls. The flood originated from the small kitchen, where the water line to the fridge broke. Not only did this affect our office suite, but the water leaked as far as 2 floors below us. Many of my co-workers either worked from home today or were working in my building. It was a little weird to have noise on this side of the street.

And as if things weren't weird already, the copier/scanner in my building broke. The workroom in the main building is closed until all the repairs have been made. UGH.

Card: Here's my take on this week's Tuesday Trigger (Garden Glory). Since I had a stamp that looked very similar to the flower seen on the pillow, my original plan was to do some watercoloring with my Distress Inks, but it got kinda messy and I figured it'd be best to move onto a different concept. Otherwise, I'd be up all night! Plan B was to punch out a bunch of squares out of teal, green and cream cardstock and arrange them in a grid pattern. I embellished the cream cardstock squares with a red heart for a pop of color and some teal buttons for some added dimension. Those Basic Grey Micro Mono stickers = best investment I've made in a while.
