What To Do When You Can't Sleep...

Before I start this post, I'd like to say that prayers go out to everyone that was affected by the earthquake and tsunami, especially those in Japan! My heart aches as I watch the news footage showing the devastation in Japan and condolences go out to those who lost loved ones. Here in Hawaii we were put on a tsunami warning last night and just the thought of what could possibly happen, kept me from sleeping. Fortunately, it didn't hit us as hard as it did Japan, but there were still some damages throughout the state.

Okay, time to get back to my post. Since I couldn't sleep, I decided to craft instead as I watched the news reports about the pending tsunami. I created this card using my good 'ol Cricut once again. I turned the inside of the card into a pop-up. Don't you just love the little crab holding the sign?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope my card can at least put a smile on your face even if it's only for a little while. Enjoy the rest of the weekend...


  1. That is super cute!!! hmmmm.... i think i might have to order some of those cuts from you!! =D hehe!! Glad you were ok... thnka goodness we didn't get it that bad!! Hugs!

  2. That card is so cute. I need to learn to make a pop up card. I am glad to hear that you guys are okay over there. That must've been nerve wrecking last night.

  3. I'm so glad you are ok and that the tsunami didn't hit Oahu as hard as they thought. I LOVE your card and really want to try to make a pop up card myself. I'll be visiting Honolulu late April and can't wait to get back there. Stay safe!

  4. This is what you created when you couldn't sleep? Amazing! I luv the little crab on the inside! :) Guess what I did 'cause I couldn't sleep either? NOTHING! Just watched the news . . . no crafting, but should have. Just thankful that everyone is safe and okay here in Hawaii.

  5. so love your card! love how you made that crab pop out! you couldn't sleep either huh. I think most of us stayed up to watch what was going to happen. so scary and to think of the damage it caused Japan...we are so much smaller. we would be totally wiped out! thank goodness that we didn't get hit as hard. hope you got some sleep after that. have a good week!

  6. Love the card Brenda! You've been using your cricut a lot lately!
    I know, I stayed up watching the news too that night; I was knitting. The sirens that went off every hour kept me up too.
    Happy Monday; have a good week!

  7. Clever Brenda! Love the crab on the inside pop up! Glad everything turned out okay for the islands, we all couldn't sleep! Take care!

  8. So this is what you were crafting while we were on FB and worried about the Tsunami!! Well, this is just too cute Brenda! I love that little crab and your 3D pop up! I actually never crafted that night, I was too tired and glued to the TV to see if I had to go to work the next day.
