Greetings, friends! I hope you are all enjoying a nice Memorial Day weekend. I enjoyed some crafty time yesterday, and today I plan on working in the garden a bit and tidying up the garage. OK not the most exciting plans ever, but I want to take advantage of the beautiful spring weather. Today at The Paper Players Anne Marie is hostess, and she has an awesome sketch challenge for us. I knew right away what I wanted to do with it.
I'm playing with yet more new toys today. I've been on a bit of a crafty spending frenzy lately. I really need to stop! The April Showers collection by Clearly Besotted is new to me, and when I saw the cute umbrellas in the Sunny Days Ahead paper pack, I had to have that, too. My umbrella was die cut first and then stamped. The raindrops were stamped and then covered with a bit of Glossy Accents to make them shiny.
