April Showers Are Just Wet

Good day to you, traveller. I apologize for the tardiness of this inscription, however I have fallen ill on our journey back to the Guild Hall after visiting the Peeled Paint Port. Although the lands were beautiful and lush, it did rain quite a few days, which likely contributed to my illness. But, enough wallowing...my lord husband and I had a wonderful time, despite the weather, making the best of the rainy days. I purchased a new accessory called an umbrella, which acted as a rain shield, keeping my armour dry for the most part. I brought a few back to the Guild Hall so my fellow guildys could delight in this invention.

This card was created for the Creative Card Crew’s “Clouds” challenge happening now! You can win a $10 gift voucher to our sponsor, Stamp Fairy who has tons of ultra cute digis!
I started by colouring up the Stamp Fairy digi using Prismacolors then inking around the edges with Distress Ink. I used the My Little Shoebox “Home Tweet Home” set to stamp the cloud image on some textured paper and cut them out, adhering them with pop dots for some dimension. I also stamped the same cloud image in blue ink on the blue paper, earning me +48 subtly exp points. The sentiment came from the Dylusions “Say What You Mean” set.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the My Little Shoebox “Oasis” set and the smiley face from the Lawn Fawn “Say Cheese” set.

I stamped more of the clouds on the envelope to make it match the card.


This rainy day creation will make a splash in the following challenges:
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge #153: The Letter A (appears numerous times in the sentiment)


I shall spend the remainder of the day resting, drinking elixirs and tonics and recharging my crafty energies before I attempt my next crafty quest.
