Holy Earthquake!!!

So I'm sitting at work today with my friend/co-worker Judy and it's around 1:45 in the afternoon. My son Trevor calls me, so I interrupt her to take his call. While I'm talking to him, I realize my chair is shaking. Like SHAKING. I look down and around me and I'm thinking "what the hell is that?" and then I look up and Judy is doing the same thing. Looking all around her. So I say "Judy - did you feel that?" and she goes "I thought you were shaking your leg or something" and I said "Trevor - I have to go". My sister (who works in the office across the hall) sends me an instant message saying "I think I am losing my mind." and I replied "Did you FEEL that?" and she says "YES!!!" So Judy and I ran into her office and we were totally freaking out. But NO ONE else in our office building felt it! Four other people! Anyway - about half hour or an hour later, we find out that there was a 5.5 earthquake in Canada today where the effects were felt "as far away as Boston." Yeah - Worcester, too! Holy crap - what a feeling. I had goosebumps up and down my arms for an hour after finding out it really was an earthquake!!!

Just sharing a card I made using a Stampin' Up! set - I hardly ever use my poor SU! sets anymore!

I love this color combo of Old Olive, Rose Red, Regal Rose, and So Saffron.
