I'm running a bit late again as one of hubby's friends is down from Queensland for his brother's 50th birthday. He has Down's Syndrome and is a lovely guy so turning 50 is a big deal for him.
We travelled up into the hills to have dinner with all the family. Another brother travelling from New Zealand to help celebrate.
It has been another wet & wild day and we could see some of the flooded areas and also some of the exit roads were closed off as well.
So.... off to bed for me,  Hope to see your entry over at the challenge blog.

Challenge#190 at 613 Avenue Create

We had a beautiful Spring Day yesterday, just in time to celebrate our 2yr granddaughter's birthday and today and most of next week are going to be very wet and windy. Lots of flooding waterways around the city and some of the outlying country areas are being flooded with loss of crops, damage to roads and trees etc. Some people have also had their homes flooded as well. This will be the second time in two weeks that the weather will be bad!
Our Daylight Saving started at 2 a.m this morning when we lost an hours sleep! When I went to church there were quite a few people missing. I think some of them didn't change their clocks, lol. One man who was supposed to do a bible reading came in the last 10 mins of the service, thinking he was 10 mins early!!!
Anyway, no time for more chit, chat, as I want to share my newest DT card with you for the new challenge that started today at 613 Avenue Create. We are an Anything Goes challenge blog with an Optional Twist. The twist this month is to use Green and Gold in your design.
Our sponsors are: Bugaboo Stamps, Eureka Stamps, Lacy Sunshine Stamps, Melonheadz Illustrating, Oddball Art Stamp Co, Ppinky Dolls, Sami Stamps and Toadstool Printables.
Here is my creation using an image from Toadstool Printables.
