Rain...Rain...Go Away...

Stamps: Tilda in Spring Rain, Rain Cloud, Sun: all Magnolia Stamps; sentiment by Inky Antics
available at Magnolia-licious
Paper: Basic Grey Lime Rickey
Ink: Memento Black; Copics
Other: 1" yellow grosgrain
Card Measures 6 inches square


Rain, Rain, Go Away....Come Again Another Day....NOT! The past few weeks have been overcast and rainy. All week it is rainy ...then the sun comes out on the weekends. If it's going to rain, I guess this is not a bad schedule. :)
Ok...I know I say this about almost all of Magnolia Stamps, (heeheehee), but I love this Tilda with umbrella! I think she looks so sweet trying to stay dry with her rain coat and rain boots! Don't you think?!?! Both this Tilda and the rain cloud are part of the Chasing Butterflies Collection and are available at Magnolia-licious. (inside: the sun is also available at Magnolia-licious). And just a reminder that orders being shipped to the US and Canada receive FREE SHIPPING on orders over $50... orders under that are only $2.50! And don't forget about the free goodies that Diana includes with every order, no matter where you are located or how much you spend!! Right now you can pre-order the Pet And Animal collection too!

The rain cloud/drops were stamped directly on the blue paper. Then stamped again on white paper with a dark gray ink. I cut only the cloud out of the white paper and used pop dots to adhere it over the one on the blue.

On a non stamping related topic, I would like to ask those of you that pray to keep one of my best friends, Paula, and her new baby Evan in your thoughts and prayers. Earlier this week, very suddenly, Paula gave birth to baby Evan, 13 and half weeks early. Evan is not even 3 pounds. I don't usually ask for prayers...but I hope it's ok to ask this time. Thanks so much.

Beautiful card and tell Paula to keep the faith!!! It'll be a long road but my oldest was born at 27 1/2 weeks, less than 3 lbs as well and he's healthy as can be. If she needs any support, send her my info.

Kerry, I love this Rainy Day Tilda card and the way you colored her! That rain cloud is so cute the way you colored on blue first then again on white and cut it out and adhered it for a nice dimensional look. Cute, cheerful card despite the rain LOL! Our prayers go out to your friend and her baby. Cami
