Sink or Swim - SSSC188

The big news here in Toronto on Monday evening was the CRAZY storm that dumped a record-breaking amount of rain!  The pictures and stories have to be seen to be believed, especially the stranded GO train - fortunately not the train I was on!
Click here for some crazy photos of the storm - I've never seen anything like it.  My local Starbucks, that I visit every morning before work, was flooded and severely damaged.  I felt so bad for them - they looked so sad the morning after trying to clean up and explain to all their customers they were closed - that I had to make them a card.  I love my Starbucks and the staff at this particular location are outstanding!

I made a cute little scene and if you look closely you'll see the little fellow is reaching for his Starbucks cup floating by.  I drew the Starbucks cup by hand as I don't have a stamp that tiny even though it's a grande True North - their new flavour :)

I sponged some clouds using the Wonky Scallop die-namic and made the waves with the Catch a Wave die-namic.  Then I added a banner with the fun sentiment.

I used the SSSC188 for my layout - with a few changes :)  These are the copics I used.

I do hope they're open for business tomorrow - I can't wait to give it to them!
