Friday Sketchers ~ Dancing in the Rain......

I had some time to play this evening after the kiddos went to bed so I decided to try out the fab sketch over at Friday Sketchers. Plus I wanted to use another Anya image!I was going through my scraps and found this plaid paper and thought it would be great for her outfit ~ so I paper pieced alittle. I colored the background with twinkling h2o's as well!
I had this perfect sentiment for the image but it would not fit on the outside so I decorated the inside ~ nothing fancy but I like to write alot on my cards. Then I had this stamp, that I forgot I had, and added to the back for a little comic relief! It was really meant for my ungrateful brothers who I think just chuck it as soon as they get it! (LOL)Sorry about the colors in the pictures but it is really dark here and played with my new camera to get a good shot but the bottoms look alittle dark.

Papers: MME Just Dreamy
Inks: distress inks, twinkling h2o's
Accessories: ribbon ~ Micheals, button ~ Basic Grey, pearls ~ Melissa Frances


Well thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great Monday. To all in the U.S ~ enjoy your Memorial Day!!

Hi Kathy, this is gorgeous - love the paper - perfect for her clothes. My Anyas only just arrived today so will have to have a play with them later. The sentiment inside is fab & I love the stamp on the back too (I only dug out my happy birthday seal stamp after seeing yours - forgot I had it, LOL!)

Kathy my darlin' this is such a fabulous card!!! OMG, I just absolutely love it!!!!! The colours and papers are gorge hun and I love the little tabs on the sides of the diamond!!! Now Anya is so super stunning I just love the paper piecing and the plaid is so perfect for her rainwear!!!! But the best thing for me was the great Laugh out Loud moment that I had just now at work, when I saw the stamp on the back of your card...that is a riot. Where did you get that stamp is so fabulous!? I need one of those! I think all cards need to come with a WARNING: DO NOT THROW OUT!
