Thinking of You Card Using CTMH Seaside Greetings stamp and paper pack

Hello friends!  I hope everyone is doing well; and finding time to create.  I have been taking time to create with some of my old and new CTMH stamp sets.  I never seem to have time to use what I buy; although I know I will eventually use the items.  It might be years later; but I do use them.  LOL!  

I finished this on Friday evening and I am sitting here with everything shaking around me, after another 7.1 earthquake hit Ridgecrest, CA again.  It was much stronger and lasted even longer than the one last night and we have continued having aftershocks; which is very stressful to me.  My husband doesn't seem concerned; but all this rolling of the ground causes me to be physically sick.  They seem to be continuous right now; with one right after the other.  I think I will get off of here and try to watch TV; and maybe I won't feel them as strongly as I am sitting in the chair.  

I created another card using CTMH Seaside Greetings stamp and paper; which has been brought back for a special on "Bring Back My Pack - Seaside".  It think some of the colors have been revised; but most of it looks like it is the same as the previous pack.  I have always loved this paper; and bought several packs when we had it several years ago.  The stamp is from previous years; but it looks like the same; but with a different ordering number.  It is an awesome stamp set.

  3. That really must be terrifying Gloria and I can't begin to image what it must be like, the closest we ever came was a mild shudder early one morning but that's so rare here in the UK.

    So well done on getting your card finished and what a perfect one it is for our Allsorts theme, thank you.

  5. Beautiful card inside and out. It's a lovely scene.

    Would you believe I finally found my lost stamp. After my detective work of looking at it I started pulling out what I used on the card. All of my sets and dies are in protective envelopes that come from My Favorite Things or some place. Well, I used a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp and it was clung to the back of that. I'm so glad I found it. My fault for not putting it right back after using it. At least the desk got a good cleaning.

  6. Your card is beautiful, lovely design and a fabulous lighthouse scene.Thank you for playing along at Crafty Catz this week.
    Hope the earthquakes/ aftershocks have settled down now, it must be terrifying.
