Icy Storm 08 damage to our property

We lost electrical power as of Thursday 12/11.
Stayed in a hotel for 3 days.
Regained electrical power 12/14.
The clean up to our property has been none stop.
500,000 locals lost power. Over 250,000 still have no power.
Banks, supermarkets, library, post office -all without power until 12/13 or 12/14. The last time we lost power was 10 yrs ago approx 5 days and only 50,000 locals were affected. Imagine the current magnitude!
During the day we worked on our land cleaning debri and such. It will take weeks to clean our property.... we'll do al ittle at a time -weather permitting. Our son's school is closed tomorrow as the devastation throughout our town has been severe.
We're exhausted/tired, though extremely thankful to be safe and our home did not recv any structual damage.
We recvd power today and haven't gone through emails, I will do so tomorrow and will work on orders as best I can.... I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Circle Mini Book Stamp line

How I created the front, back covers? Inked the circle image with espresso ink, stamped on plain grungeboard sheets, heat set, then cut out. Applied peeled paint Distress crackle paint and heat set. Applied peeled paint on the grungeboard elements key/hey hole and used espresso ink on Swirl image from Fansy Design on key, heat set, then applied a little bit of Glossy Accents on the swirls. Let dry, cool effect! Also used Snow Cap/Cloudy Blue pig-pads on the cover. Oh, those 'tabs', used Cloudy Blue on 110 white c/s. Stamped the days of the week to glue on the tabs. Used the circle image to make a template and cut 4+ circles from decorative c/s. Affixed the 'tabs' with eyelets and my fave Zip Dry glue... lol! This glue is unreal!! Try it and lmk what you think!!
