I am at a loss.....

for a title for this post.  This happens all the time and even after three years of blogging I still get totally stumped on titles.  I am sadden by the devastation in Japan and my heart goes out to all that are effected by this tragedy. I have lived in earthquake prone areas all of my life and it is very scary how in just an instant everything around you can be destroyed or worse.   I got an unexpected day off yesterday due the tsunami warnings.  I happen to live up in northern California just south of Crescent City where they had some of the most damage to the U.S.  Everything was fine for us, but we are nearly surrounded by the low laying areas that the authorities were concerned about.  About 10 minutes before leaving for work yesterday I got a call  that I didn't have to come in to work.  So that meant I got a day to play with my stamps.  Which was much needed after more than a week of sinus trouble that has kept me from wanting to make anything or even blog.  So enough of me blabbering I have a card I made using this weeks sketch from MoJo Monday, Simon Says challenge- Anything Goes and ABC Challenege's challenge P is for Pearl.

 Thank you for stopping by.
