As I am typing this post, It is pounding rain outside with some thunder in the background.  I know these last couple of months have been difficult for most people weather wise.  I just would like to have a week of no rain!  I think this weather is what inspired today’s card!  😕


Fable Friends, 148670


LOL!!  This is how I feel.  I was looking through my stamps for inspiration and when I saw this one I knew it was perfect for this post.  I may have gone a tad overboard with my rain drops, LOL!!!, but it is how I feel right now.

I do truly love this Fable Friends stamp set.  It reminds me of my childhood reading, but the figures are just so adorable.  And the “sunshine sentiment” is a wishful thinking sentiment!.

The Stampin’ Blends have really brought back my love of coloring.  I find myself reaching for them quite often.  I hope not too often for you folks!  They were perfect for coloring these cuties though.  The rain is from Touches of Texture.  I inked the stamp with Balmy Blue and stamped off before stamping on the whisper white card stock.  And the finishing touch was the “sun” sentiment with a couple of Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

Thank you for checking out my rainy day card.  It is supposed to be cool but no rain for a couple of days now so I will try to refrain from weather related cards 🙂
