Rainbows in a Storm

Rainbows in a Storm - Many of you know that I live in Moore, Oklahoma that was recently hit by a tornado.  My daughter lost her home in the storm. If you haven't read my story you can find a link to the post on my right side bar. You can also see my grandson's TV interview by clinking on that link, also in the sidebar.

Krista Smith of Saturated Canary did a wonderful and touching thing. She created this image and sold it for one dollar, last Friday only and is donating the money to my daughter, to help her rebuild. 

The image is named Sweet Oklahoma and is available at full price in Krista's here. The money won't go to my daughter, but you can still spread the word that we need help, by using the image.

My card today is my DT card for Crafts 4 Eternity. The challenge is spots and stripes. You can find both spots and stripes in the banners that top the card. There is also spots and stripes in the patchwork on the umbrella.

My designer paper is Summer Soul by Fancy Pants Designs. I liked the swirls. We know about rain swirling around you. LOL

The papers were inked with Tumbled Glass distress ink.

Here is a close up of the image - Sweet Oklahoma. I colored her to look like my daughter Lindsay. Lindsay's favorite color is pink and she is a shoe horse. She liked the sparkly boots. I knew it was something  that she would wear!

I had this sentiment by Inkadinkado and thought it was perfect for us. We have much to be thankful for. I used a SU punch to cut it with.

The banner was fussy cut from the Summer Soul papers. I added Baker's Twine in Blue Lagoon

Close up of the boots!
