RS #23 ~ Under the Weather!

Hello so happy you stopped by today! I have a fun card I'm entering into the Retro Sketches challenge. We have a couple of friends and family members a touch under the weather, so I could use some get well cards for my stash. I knew I wanted to use my cloud dies (A.Muse) and this is what I came up with.


I added some chalk to the bottom of my clouds to make them appear heavy with rain, then added them to the card with foam tape. This fun DP is My Mind's Eye and the cute parachuting chickie is DeNami. I paper pieced the parachute and popped it up with foam tape. I like this sentiment (PSX) with the puffy clouds and sun trying to peek out! We're going to be under the weather around here for a few days...the RAINY kind that is! We need it... so we'll put up with it!

  
Wishing you a delightful day! My SIL (aka:stamping buddy!) and I are off to Archivers this afternoon while Max gets groomed! It's been awhile since we've been there; can't wait to see what kind of goodies we find! ~Lisa
