April (and May and June) Showers

We had several nice weeks here in the Pacific NW which, for some reason, makes us delusional thinking we will have sun from now until October.  Ha, ha, ha.  In reality, it will rain off and on until July.  But at least it is green here ! Don't get me wrong,  I love it here but as I said in a previous post, sometimes I get tired of the clouds.
Diane's Daydream Designs has such a cute set called Sunshine and Rain.  I am having a lot of fun making cards with these images and also having fun (and frustrations) learning how to use my new Silhouette.  I did cut out these images with my machine, layering and popping up pieces.  I love how it turned out.    I cut out the sentiment with a Spellbinder oval.

The background paper is by Doodle Pantry.  I put liquid glaze on the puddle to make it look like water.
The ground is a dark light weight Kraft from the Kraft Outlet.

You can find Diane's set at the Daydream Designs Store.

  4. Wow this is a beautiful card! Love all the bright colors. Thank you for joining us this week over at the Kraft Journal.

  5. Such a sweet card, Marsha. Love how you created the ground to stage everything, and how you covered the sun with the clouds. Storms in life do come and go, and I think they strengthen our faith. What a lovely card to offer some encouragement to someone going through one of those storms. Thanks for all you do, Marsha. You are a more-than-dreamy Dream Team dreamer!!!
