Well you know the Old Saying ... when it rains it pours...well it certainly has been happening here! My Grandma fell this morning and broke her femur all the way through so she is headed to surgery at 4:30 this afternoon! This will be a quick post so I can get back there before they take her down.
This week our challenge at Loves Rubberstamps certainly fits with the way my life has been going this last month or so! APRIL SHOWERS!
To Play along just create a project that has Rain Showers, Umbrellas, thunderstorms & lightning...or think Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, as long as it has something to do with some sort of "SHOWER" it will qualify :)
Here is my card:
To create this card I used this week's sketch from Sketch N Stash:
For my papers I actually used some of my hoarded paper supply of My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Two! I adore this paper pack and will be so sad when I run out.
My image is from C.C. Designs and is called Umbrella Lula. I also used the C.C. Designs Cutters Die - Umbrella and the Umbrella Logos set to create my Ticket and the sentiment with the matching paper pieced umbrella. The Ticket I did cut out with the C.C. Designs Tickets Cutters Die too.
I colored my Lula using copic markers after stamping her in memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also paper pieced her hat and the umbrellas. I popped the little duck up so he is 3D. The clouds I free hand cut and then sponged then super lightly with some gray ink.
Here are some close ups:
I really thought this turned out super cute! I will be later this evening to get all the links to the products on and to update my post with the challenges that I am entering!
