A Sketch challenge

Evening Everyone,
I made this card last week using the sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp and it has taken me till now to blog it, which is hopefully just before the challenge closes.
The chalked butterfly panel was in my stash box and I have stamped and embossed the fabulous Woodware stamp over the top of it.
I think this stamp is probably one of my favourites from this latest collect from Woodware.
The background card is also from my scrap box, so I guess that this will also fit very nicely into the Woodware challenge this week, which is Stash Busters.
These are pictures that I took this morning at the bottom of our road. This is the current state of the main A22 road, a direct link to the M25. You can imagine the chaos that its closure is causing. Please ignore the date on the photos as I had to put in new batteries and didn't think to re-set the calender properly.
At the moment the water treatment works just down the road is under threat and so if it is a choice between keeping that open and flooding us we loose :O(
Worryingly we have heard talk that the road could be closed for a couple of months!!!!! Given that no deliveries are able to get in to the garage I'm not quite sure how that will affect things for me, and of course my Sin-in-law works at Wraybury Tyres which is completely under water, so as you can imagine we are a pretty worried household at the moment.
Crafting keeps me from thinking of all these other things so I will be back again tomorrow. See you then.
