Rainy Days


Have I told you that we have a new shipment in the store from Whiff of Joy ? Apparently some of you have figured it out, because they are selling pretty quickly! :-)

I made this card a while back and never posted it because the stamps sold out. The stamps used are Willow Umbrella Girl and Fall Grass . Actually, I used the Fall Grass stamp from the Accessories and Sentiments set, but I'm pretty sure it's the same stamp as their single.

And why do they call that stamp Fall Grass anyway? It's pretty Springy looking to me! LOL!

I did my usual...stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored and shaded with Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6 x 6 paper pad. I love that stuff!



This is a shot of the inside of the card. I haven't quite decided to whom I will send it, so I left off the sentiment until I need it so I can make it appropriate for the occasion.

Before I forget, I wanted to be sure to let you know that my friend Tosha is going to be posting some VERY AWESOME blog candy tonight! She reached 100,000 hits a few days ago, and that girl DOES know how to do Blog Candy right! Congratulations, Tosha! You only have that many hits because your work is soooooo fabulous! :-)

So be sure to check out her blog later tonight for the goodies. I PROMISE it's great stuff you will want!

Thanks for stopping by tonight. I'm off to make dinner. I totally missed most of Dancing with the Stars, darn it! Yes...I know I'm old. But I LOVE that show!
