It's the time of year when you can use some get well cards. I know that I could! I am still not up to par, but I did get to the doctor yesterday and he said I was at the worst of it then. I got a shot and a couple of prescriptions, so I should be on the road to recovery! Maybe that's why I decided to make an "under the weather" card! I used this cute image from squigglefly called April Showers.
I don't know why it is I always color rain coats a bright yellow, and this one is no exception. There are a couple of things about this card that I just love. One is the designer paper I used on the background. I love that it has clouds on it! I mean you couldn't ask for a better paper to go with this!
The second favorite thing is how the little splashes in the puddle turned out! I put some crystal lacquer on the rain drops and the puddle. Then I used some of the tear drop shaped rain dots at the puddle and they look just like splashes!
Aren't the splashes perfect?! I just love them!
I thought the ribbon with the green and yellow circles on it went well with the colors I used too. I pierced in all the corners and printed the greeting in a font called Cool Dots.
Now I have a challenge to take care of! The challenge came from Nora at Handmade and heavenly. The rules for this challenge are - Go to where you store your photos on your computer. Go to the SIXTH folder and pick the SIXTH photo. Post that photo on your blog along with a SHORT story about it. Tag SIX people and leave a comment on their blog or email them letting them know you chose them.
I only have one picture folder on my computer, but here is the sixth picture in the folder.
I was making cards one day and my cat came in wanting some attention. He's usually happy to sit on my shoulders on at my feet, but this particular day he wanted me to pay attention to him. He started playing with the twill ribbon I was using and I stopped what I was doing and started taking pictures. He did get the attention he wanted from me and I was able to finish my cards!
Now the six people I'm going to tag for this challenge are
3. Another Tracey
Nora also gave me an award!
The rules state that I'm supposed to nominate ten other blogs, but I am just going to ask that you take a look at my blog list on the side of my blog and choose ten to go visit! They're all great!
I hope all of you are feeling well and don't catch this creeping crud that I got!
Tomorrow is card give away day, so don't forget to come back for that! Thanks for looking!
