Well I just couldn't miss the Sassy Cheryl Challenge this week. Best Bud, Sassy Jeni is hosting the challenge and she wanted to see April Showers Cards. Cheryl just created this new little image named "Sam's Umbrella" and, of course I fell in love with her. If you want to add her to your collection, you can get her here. If you hurry and get her by Sunday night, you can get her for $2.00! I bought her last week for $3.00. I sure missed that bargain, didn't I?
My yummy DP is from the Hip Hooray collection at My Mind's Eye. The Cloud paper is also My Mind's Eye but from the Good Day Sunshine collection. The yellow card stock is DCWV. The cloud itself was punched with a Friskar's punch. I printed the digi twice and cut the umbrella out of the red polka dot paper and popped it up with foam tape. I love dimension and liked the look it gave as Sam poked her head out from under the umbrella. Everything was colored with Copics and the sparkles are a combination of Stickles and a glitter pen. My sentiment is a clear stamp, but I am sorry to say I don't know the manufacturer. Button from my stash and a little chalk to dress up the cloud and she is done.
I made this card while at Aww Shucks, my local scrapbook store. While one customer was shopping, her daughter came over and helped me place the sentiment and chose the button for me to use. So I must give credit to my designer apprentice, Sidney. Sidney lives in Niagra Falls, Ontario Canada and was visiting Myrtle Beach this week. I think she made the perfect choice, don't you? How do you think it looks on the blog Sidney? Thank you so much for your advice, you rock honey!
I have a surprise coming on Wednesday, so be sure and check back then. You are not going to want to miss it, I promise!
Hugs and Happy Rest of the Weekend to you!
