Rain or Shine it’s blogging time!

Hello friends. I have been so busy these past few days. whew!  On Friday Tom must have thought I needed a nice lil break, so he took me to Laughlin. We played a little bit of black jack then went and had some yummy sushi. I’m not big on gambling but love virtual black jack, it’s so much fun to play. What a great day it was for sure!! I always love when we can get away by ourselves, even if it’s for a few hours. The kids are getting ready to go on vacation soon,which means it’s time to head back to California for a nice little visit.  I can’t wait to see all my family and friends! As far as crafting goes, I have made a promise to myself to get Joshua’s baby scrapbook finished once and for all. I even stepped out of my comfort zone and went to a crop night this week, at the club house in my community. It was fun and I meet some really nice women.  In the past I never really liked participating in crops because I hate toting my supplies around. And of course you always forget something.. So frustrating!! But if it’s going to help me finish my lil guys album then I’ll do it. I will make sure to post some of my completed pages, once I take some decent photos. Sorry, I’m totally chattering away, and it’s getting late. Tyla’s kitty is pawing at me to feed him. But before I say good night I want to show you this card I made using Whiff of Joy’s “Umbrella Willow” gosh I just love all things girly!!! And she is totally girly.


I made this card using scraps of basic grey paper and SU certainly celery/pretty in pink. I colored the image and made the sidewalk with my copics. I glued little seed beads to make the rain look dimensional and added some glossy accents to make her umbrella look wet. I also packed some goodies inside the card, A small tissue pack, a cough drop and a chapstick. Certainly for someone feeling under the weather, don’t ya think? With all this rain I felt this was an appropriate card to share with you tonight. Have a great week and hope to post something new for you soon. Thanks for stopping by. ~Angela
