Skies are definitely Grey!

Happy Saturday!

If you haven't heard we are having wild weather here in Queensland due to a Category 5 tropical cyclone that hit the coast yesterday. I was woken up at 3.30am yesterday morning due to the wind and rain - it was pretty scary. I'm about 1000km away from where the cyclone was due to make landfall so I can't even begin to imagine what it was like up there. Thank goodness there are no reports of lives lost but there is a lot of damage to a number of communities and my thoughts and prayers go out to them.

As the cyclone moved south and downgraded to a tropical low, the weather is deteriorating as the day goes on. We are starting to flood a little and the wind rain is relentless. 

At the same time there was a Category 4 cyclone hitting the top end of Australia. Mother nature at its best...

So, what's a girl to do when holed up at home? Retreat to the craft room!

Today I made a card that was totally inspired by the weather.

I have used my stitched rectangle, rainbow and cloud die from Lil' Inkers as well as the sentiment. I created my grass with my hillside border dies from Lawn Fawn.

My raindrops are from PTI

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges
