…Without A Little Rain

It’s the start of a new week, and I wanted to make sure that Brooke was able to start hers with a little smile on her face…so this is what I took with me when we went to see her yesterday afternoon (along with several puzzle books to help occupy her time while she’s in bed):

I printed some of the newer images from the By LORi Designs’ March release: Puddle Jumpers Ella’s Umbrella and the sentiment from Umbrella Sentiments.  I colored Ella with Copic Sketch Markers then cut her out leaving a bit of a white border around the entire image.  I paired the completed image with some patterned papers from the Stella Rose-Mabel paper pack from My Mind’s Eye along with some Summer Sunrise, Taken With Teal, and White Cardstock.  I stitched the small striped panel, punched a border along the bottom of two of the panels, then pierced the upper edge of the entire floral panel with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer.  I added some Turquoise Rhinestones to the sentiment panel as well as the lower portion of the card base.  After adding some Dimensionals and a couple of stripes with my White Signo Gel Pen the card was complete!

That’s it for me!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I will see you all back here on Friday with a card for the By Lori Designs’ April Release!  My boys are on Spring Break, so I’m going to be a very busy momma until this next weekend.  If I get a chance to sit down to play one day I will be sure to post my creation for you guys…but I’m not making any promises!  LOL!  Until later…
