The Eagle has landed

Well this is a favorite image of mine, I am mesmerized by Eagle's although we only saw 2 on our Alaskan cruise. I used SU confetti cs, TAC DSP for both layers and I used the SU Corner punch on my Pearl Ex Paper I made . I colored the image with Copic's E57, E55, E33, Y18, & YR15 set is from Our Daily Bread. Quick and simple because I made it yesterday since today I had Noooooooooooooo time for my Studio.

Remember my post yesterday about the rain and how everything is soaked to the bone. Ever hear of the saying 'When it rains it pours'? Well this positive person who tries so hard to be happy 24/7 lost it today. About 5 years ago today a pipe broke in my new home that I had only been in for a few days, it flooded the basement and made one huge mess. Today as I was taking out the trash my foot didn't even get past the last step into the basement when I felt the mussy, squishy carpet and I almost cried. I opened the laundry room door and saw it over an inch of water on the floor and oh I could just see deja-vue. I couldn't even reach over and unplug the washer & dryer so I hit the circuit breaker. To make a long story short I was flooded but I made matters worse by pulling the washer away from the wall and the pipe burst. I had to climb up on the counter and turn the water off to the house but for some reason it didn't shut off all the way so I had to turn off the main water valve at the road. My carpet is soaked 3 feet into my Studio and the den is soaked 1/3 of the way. I called the Insurance Company they'll get here tomorrow. Then I called my handyman he fixed my pipe and told me the foundation is leaking, there is mold behind the washer, dryer and along the wall. My wet vac isn't working right so I turned on the fan....and guess whats in the forecast for the next 4 days R A I N, R A I N, R A I N.

Life is grand, God is good, and I'm sure tomorrow will be a better day!
God Bless.

Oh Granny, I'll have to dig through my photos. 4 years ago when I first started photography, and took some classes, one of my homework assignments was birds.... we were on our way to Kyle & Rachelle's from Leavenworth (that's were we lived then) and lo and behold right next to the road on a tree was a big beautiful eagle. He didn't move and I had my camera and zoom lens. I'll find them and send them to ya. Love the card..... great great job. I am so sorry about your pipes and all the water. Praying that you'll dry out quickly... have faith!!!! hugs

Eagles are very beautiful and incredible to watch in nature. Your card is beautiful.

Sorry about your water pipes and the mess. Sounds like you really had a time getting the water turned off!!!

We are suppose to get rain too.
Hope you get dried out soon.

Gorgeous card, Jeanine! I especially that you stamped the eagle right on the blue textured cardstock. It stands out so well.

I'm sorry you had such a rough day, sweetie! I'm praying that today is a better one.
