April Showers...

This is a card I started on a couple of nights ago, then got distracted with new stamp orders arriving. So I really forgot what my original concept was. Oh well, I just went with it! LOL!

That adorable little bear is Penny Black's Rainin' Daisies . Isn't that just the sweetest stamp?

I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink on watercolor paper, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. I colored the image with Tombow markers and a Tombow blender pen.

The sentiment is also from Penny Black, and I thought it was perfect for the image. It's called Rain and Flowers . It was also stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed with detail clear embossing powder.

The pink background is cardstock stamped with Scrolling Along . I used VersaMark ink for the watermark effect.

I found the Offray ribbon at Wal Mart. The prima flowers are there to cover a little accident. I was putting away my markers and the lid came off one of them. Of course, it landed right on top of my sentiment. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Don't you just hate it when that happens?

So...that's it for me tonight. I'm actually going to try to do a few things around the house and turn in a bit early. And that NEVER happens! Well, on second thought maybe I will just enjoy a little stamping instead! :)

Thanks for stopping by. I do so appreciate each and every one of you!

this is such a cute card! Who wouldn't love this stamp? I love how you colored the bear, he's just huggable:) I've ruined so many cards by brushing up against open stamp pads that I no longer get upset about it. I simply reach for the flowers and nobody will ever know but me! This sentiment needed something in that corner anyway:) Nice job:)
