Still raining here...

Ok, so I'm tired of rain! LOL! One day, even half of another day, that's fine...but 3 days of rain? Time to move on out! Besides it keeping me from getting a good photo of my cards, its dreary and depressing, zapping my creativity (hey, I got something to blame it on!! haha!) But I thought I would post this card I did for one of the Dirty Girl Challenges at SCS back in July. It was made for JulieHRR's challenge, to embrace the white space! I tried!



As anybody knows that visits my blog, this WAS a challenge for me. Not that I use alot of layers, but I love color, and bright ones at that. It was kinda fun to do though, and sure dont take you long to get one done like this! I think I must be strange, it takes me nearly allll day to make a card. I mean, I'm not sitting there STRAIGHT for hours, but will walk away and come back, having thought about something else I want to add or change about it...I play around alot with the layout of (which is my hardest thing to do, the layout part). I always feel like I have to 'tie in' all the elements of a card. (if that makes sense, hard to explain!) If I dont do that, my card will bug me to death, lol. And on a side note...I need more copics, some to match the SU! cardstock I have now...

Card Details:
Stamps: SU! A Little Bit of Happiness
Papers: PTI cardstock
Accessories: copic markers, flower rhinestone and hemp twine from M's, scor-pal, dimensionals


Thanks for stopping by today, and hope to get pictures of the cards I have made later today, if the sun will at least poke its head out!
