Make It Monday #125 with Meljen's Designs

I'm late, I'm late!!

Don't think I have been this late for MIM before.

Where I live in Queensland Australia we have been hit by the devastating force of ex tropical cyclone Oswald for the last week. Wide spread flooding, power outages and some of the areas worst hit have only just started to recover from the same thing two years ago.

We are more fortunately up here in the norther part of the state as we have the infrastructure set up to cope with the deluges and destructive winds. We copped a lashing earlier last week and this weekend we were without phone or internet services for the last 24 hours, which is nothing in comparison to those down south. My heart goes out to them as they struggle to deal with it all.

Here I am now though,with my card for this week's 
MAKE IT MONDAY linky party. 

I used a cute little image from our sponsor called Teeny Mouse Hugs
