I am doing a box for my dad for Christmas. he likes to play poker so I did a joker card (got the pattern from a book called ante up and Michaels) going to paint the box red. Then going to get deck of cards and poker chips to put inside for his gift. Here are pics of the WIP and finish (took just a few days!)

tropical storm Debbie

Well we need the rain but it was recorded that Debbie dumped over 10" just where I am (some places more) not to mention the 7 tornados (including 2 deaths) that it brought along. Debbie is now gone but the wind sure was nice vs sweating out in the Florida heat. I feel bad for those who suffered (there have been reported multiple sinkholes in one county and another county still under mandatory evacuations). Here are a few shots that I took from my house.
