Rain Rain Go Away..... but bring the snow! giggles!!!

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Macadamia

Hello everyone! I was actually able to drink coffee today! yippppeeeee! also tried some card making..... not my best by any means, but hey - I got a card made! I think perhaps I will wait another few days before trying again, but it did feel good to get some ink on my fingers again!

I used this cute little squirrel friend from Digital Stamp Oasis. I was doing a bit of catching up on my over 3000 emails sitting in my mailbox, and came across this wonderful card over at Thinking Inking - a blog I visit as often as she updates. I CASE'd Debbie's adorable sketch layout (3rd project), but not to fear, my card doesn't even begin to come close to that adorable card! That is what inspired me to get crafting today. Of course I made to with the tools I have and what I wanted to convey with my card. Not only that, I was challenging myself with this glitter paper - some that I had picked up a while back as part of a pack even though the bright colors are not my style at all. I added some shimmerz paint to the flower center as well as the puddle. The rain has been higlighted with my glitter pen. The primas are dotted with fruit punch stickles in the center & then accented with punched leaves. Vintage buttons complete the scallop double border punch. Love the look of the big grosgrain bow! The sentiment is a rub-on from Basic Grey.

Challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Glittery Spring
