Under my Umbrella

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Whew another warm day today.  Went to see both my parents today, they are both doing well and it was lovely to catch up with them both.  When I got home I had to get changed as I was so hot and sticky.

Anyway you don't want to know about that :)  Here is my card for you this evening.


1. 8 x 8 Cream Scalloped card which I have stamped down both edges with the umbrella stamp in Distress Ink Forest Moss (Sheena Douglass - Only Words through the Rain)
2. Using Spellbinder Grande Labels 1 Die I cut out the green patterned card and layered it onto the base card.
3. I then cut out a piece of white card with the above die and using a natural sponge sponged around the outside using SU Wild Wasabi, then the inside using SU Certainly Celery.
4.  I stamped Raindrops (Designs by Ryn) using DI Forest Moss, and a couple of the umbrellas.
5. To finish off I stamped the sentiment from Sheena Douglass Only Words through the Rain stamp set with Black Memento

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
