The mini stamp set we have for you this month is
For my card, I used rainbow digital paper. I used word art in microsoft word to curve my sentiment. I had to print it a couple of times to get it just right. I printed it first on plain typing paper and placed the clear stamp over it so see how I needed to adjust it. Then I simply printed it on the rainbow paper. I stamped and masked the clouds. I colored around the edges of the clouds with two different shades of gray. I paper pieced the umbrella using the hearts from this really cool digi set called Sassy Frassy Digi Papers The papers can be resized to what ever size you need. For this card I made the little hearts really tiny so that they didn't overwhelm the umbrella. I was going to add glue and glitter to the raindrops, but decided that I liked how it turned out, so no glitter.
As we are waiting for a huge snowstorm to hit, my 16 year old son, looked at my card and said, "MOM, it isn't rain that should go away it is snow." (Can you tell, he doesn't want to have to shovel it?). So he said this is what it should say... "Precipitation, Precipitation, Depart Hence." He is a funny one.Very smart... takes after me...
This is what I listened to as I crafted today. If I think about Spring... it will come... right?
