Quit Your Whinin'

Hey there everyone.   The girls and I made it back home late yesterday after the earthquake struck in our area.  Such a rare occurrence here in the DC area and it shook up a lot of people.  Last night we had an aftershock of 3.8 which was considerably less than the original.  Is anyone else just as terrified of all these natural disasters happening?  Irene is picking up strength and is expected to be our in area by Sunday but thousands are  being evacuated along the coast.   I am saying a prayer that this hurricane turns out to sea and only brings us rain.  Please bring us something good.  I read a comment online from a man who asked what's next?  Locusts?  It certainly seems fitting. 
My Crafty Creations  card for today:
When I was growing up, my father used to say," Quit your whinin' or I'll give you something to whine about."  I am LOL thinking about this but at the time it was not appreciated at all.  Now, this little fella looks like he would cause you to have a bigger concern if you don't stop the whinin'  He's from Digis with Attitude.    I choose to keep him nice and orange.  I guess he's not a Maryland blue crab.  Since I just came from South Carolina, it seems more fitting.  I didn't eat one crab while there.  I used to love to pick crabs but now the work is too tedious.  I know, lazy huh? 
I used Sassafrass and Echo Park papers.  The bingo and grid is Sass.  The polka dots are EP.  I punched a black scallop border with my EK Success punch and embellished with a few buttons.  The rub-on is Wordsmith.  I love those and I can't find them anywhere now.  I bought them, are you ready? when Recollections was a store.  Yep.  They had a really great selection.  It was a sad day when they closed.  Please come and join us for the challenge!
