Rain & Shine...


Hope you all had a good a weekend. Hubby and I had a great weekend with the Nixon seniors, always fun when we hang out with them..

For the last couple of weeks, I have really wanted to enter the Card Concept #8 use an Umbrella.

So when I got home last night I decided to make a card for the challenge.

I decided that I would go with Clean & Graphic as my style..

The image is a free digital stamp. I put it all together on my computer, I created the sentiment and added a frame, to create the clean / graphic style.

I liked the idea of using 3 colours, as I already had black and white I opted for red. The umbrella was coloured using Promarkers, I added a little bit of glitter glue to the rain drops, to add a little shimmer.

I really like the way my card has come out. It's pretty for a recipient!



  1. Very sharp! I love red with black and white. Your umbrella pops and the sentiment is true. Thanks for sharing your lovely card...lucky recipient :-)
