Rain or Shine

We had a lovely spring rain a couple of days ago -- I loved the sound of it on my deck, and when I woke up, there was a delicious fog all around that made me feel like I was in England! It burned off by 10 a.m. and left a cloudless sky.

Sometimes clouds are really fun. Like when they are die cuts from The {Stamps} of Life! Both the umbrella and the cloud dies are  designs by Stephanie Barnard:
The fun stamps are from umbrella4you. I stamped the umbrella using Stephanie's Premium Strawberry ink, and filled in with Cornflower. The dots are colored with a Copic marker. 

I added some Cherries Jubilee buttons by Buttons Galore and 3/8" Aqua Floral Satin ribbon all available from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The Aqua Floral Satin ribbon is one of my favorite ribbons Bonnie carries. The shimmer and subtle floral design is perfect for so many projects. There are three other beautiful spring colors. Type "Floral Satin" in the search bar at the store site! Buttons come in all colors and are available here.
Both the buttons and the ribbon (as well as the card panels) are adhered with Scor-Tape.

Did you see the new challenge? It's BUTTONS AND BOWS!  Come along and play with us! Thanks for stopping by today~!
