Stationary Cards & Hurricane Ike

First, Hurricane Ike - I took this picture from weatherchannel.com and I'm sure it is some sort of copyright infringement (sp?). Our town is going nuts at the moment! Store shelves are bare; gase prices jumped, yet people are still waiting in long lines to fill their tanks; traffic is getting crazy and we have evacuees here from other parts of the state that don't know where they are going, I saw 2 traffic accidents yesterday alone within 5 miles of each other; businesses have shut down early. I agree that we will see some inclement weather from this storm and that precautionary measures should be taken, but it seems the town has gone bonkers! The main objective is to STAY SAFE --- which is easier when there is not MASS PANIC. I am an insurance agent...believe me, we are well aware of what is going on. Insurance companies refer to these types of losses as Catastrophic, meaning widespread destruction. We insurance agents pray that these claims never happen, but mother nature is unexplainable and can't be prevented. If this storm hits us as projected, we agents will be working overtime next week and our adjusters will be on overtime for a couple of months. I'll cut my babbling blog short by saying, I pray for your safety and for that of your family and anyone traveling during this time - Please Be Safe!!!

Lastly, the Stationary Cards - I made these for my friend J who is a high school teacher in West Texas. Her birthday is next week and I wanted to make something for her she could use daily if she wanted to send notes home to parents or anything else of the sort. The school colors are blue and white. She loves stamping and card making, so I think she'll love them.
