Hello Rain - Crafty Creations Challenge

Hi ya everyone!
  This week at Crafty Creations we are sponsored by the lovely Kristy of Some Odd Girl!!!!!!!!  Love her adorable stamps.


I set the challenge this week and since I'm in Portland and the rain never stops I get a lot of inspiration for this challenge - Rain Cards!!!  Either through an image or a scene show us the rain!  I chose this ADORABLE little image from Some Odd Girl called Puddle Hopping Tia.  Oh my gosh - isn't she cute!! I colored her in pinks, blacks and grays to match some AWESOME Echo Park paper I got recently!
I used a sketch from Card Patterns this week so I will also be entering their challenge.  Here is the sketch:
 I cut the scallop portion on my Cricut as I don't have a scallop border punch...I'm starting to think I need one - because this was sort of a pain on the Cricut!  It worked just fine and I was able to get it the exact size I wanted but a border punch would have been easy! LOL
After laying the design out I used some Teresa Collins bling and also the Hello is from Clear and Simple stamps.  I hope you join our rainy challenge at Crafty Creations this week - you could win free digis from Some Odd Girl!

  3. Love pink with anything but especially black ... this one's a keeper! I was trying to do a Big scallop border the other day and had to settle for a small scallop because I didn't have a punch that made large scallops. Never thought about using my Cricut ... DOH!!!!!
