Pick me Up--For a Friend

A friend of mine just lost her second llama this week.....so I wanted to send her a little hug via the USPS.

I chose this set called Rain or Shine by My Favorite Things for the card because I just wanted to send her a little sunshine. I also (sort of!) followed the My Favorite Things sketch challenge for this...I just changed the center image to a rectangle rather than a circle. Thanks Cindy for another great sketch!

I went over the rain drops with icicle stickles. The designer paper is actually a digital paper pack from My Favorite Things. You just print out the paper from your printer as you need it! LOVE that!


Materials used: Stamps-Rain or Shine (My Favorite Things); cardstock-white, pink, red (Stampin' Up!); Digital Paper pack (My Favorite Things); brilliance black ink; Prismacolor pencils; Copic Cool Grey #1 Marker; Icicle Stickles; pink ribbon (SU!); circle punches and scalloped circle punch (SU!); dimensionals (SU!); slit punch (SU!), red dot stickers (unknown).

Thanks for stopping by!

Love it, love it, love it! The cheery colours help keep the rain images from being too "blue." Every time I see this set I ponder it. Then I remember my credit card bill. Eep! Definitely going to make your friend feel a warm fuzzy! Even if she has lost a warm fuzzy. :( Very sad, because llamas are cute.
TFS! Love your stuff!
