Believe in Yourself

I was inspired by all the beautiful artwork over at Simon Says Stamp and Show to get out my Wendy Vecchi stamps again and use her striking woman image.  The background was made with Distress Inks in several of my favorite colors after I stamped her and masked off the image.  The water splashes make such a cool effect with the Distress Inks.

School has been cancelled for tomorrow because Hurricane Sandy is supposed to hit us in the middle of the night with high winds and heavy rains.  We're hoping we don't lose any power, but chances are we will.  We've got extra water, flashlights and plenty of food, so we should be O.K.

I am also putting this in Make It Pretty Monday.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I hope you have time to leave a comment so I can hop over and check out your blog, too.
