365 Cards Day #37 and 2S4Y #23

First, I want to share a photo my son took. He is 9 years old and him and my fiancee (his dad) went to survey the damage of the floods in our town. There is moderate flooding and it is supposed to start going down now. We live off of the Oconee River in Georgia. Anyway, I thought this picture was pretty cool:



Today's challenge on 365 cards was to DIY. That is, create your own piece of embellished chipboard. I also combined it with this weeks sketch on 2 Sketches 4 You Sketch #23. THEN, I realized that it fits with the Mommysavers challenge to use blue and green. (my fav color combo at the moment!) So, another triple play for me!
THE SKETCH:

MY CARD:


BTW, I used another one of my Michael's $1 cupcake stamps (I love cupcakes!!- you can tell by my waistline) and some 3D glue stuff from Dollar Tree. I covered it with my Sugar Coating Glitter (I need to buy more of this stuff when I go back to Michael's!!). I colored everything with my handy dandy Sharpies!

Oooh Oooh Oooh! Almost forgot!! PLEASE visit 365cards next week for Scor-It week!! I WANT one!!! I am definitely going to love all the "fold" challenges they will be offering! (no scor-it needed to play)
