 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
"Love Script"

The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Big Cupcake"

My first card using today's set, Rain Clouds, is serving two purposes -- the first, obviously, is to let you see the brand-new set; but the second reason is for today's CCEE challenge.  Frances gave the CCEE stampers a challenge to use as many "C's" on our cards as we could -- "C" for CCEE, naturally.  My card is circular, has clouds on it, and uses crystal lacquer on the raindrops.  The name of the red MFP cardstock is Cherry Slush, and it's also supposed to cheer you up!


I found the fun patterned paper on my second card in Michaels last week, the same day that I found the rainbow paper I used on my Lots of Luck card on Tuesday.   I thought it would go perfectly with the galoshes in today's set.


I stamped the galoshes onto the DP, cut them out, and paper-pieced them onto the sentiment panel.  Pretty simple card.

Thanks again for visiting my blog, and be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the team.  Comment on as many blogs as you can in order to increase your chances of winning a free set of stamps.  Patty

Lois your circle card looks fabulous! The clouds are just gorgeous! You really lucked out finding fun papers at Michaels!!! Loving the boots in pink!

mariko said...

Your first card is so vibrant! The blue umbrella is colored beautifully. Love those plump raindrops! The second card with the boot background paper is adorable. I especially love the sentiment! I used to love to stare into puddles and pretend to step on the clouds that I saw reflected in them.....

Joanne (jojot) said...

great cards.....Your CCEE card is really sweet and colored so fabulously.....great job with the 'c' elements

Sabrina said...

I think anybody would be cheered up to get that sweet umbrella card in the post. And it's a sentiment I particularly like. I always remember years and years ago a friend saying to me that when I couldn't have any faith that a particular situation I was in was every going to improve, he was there to have faith for me. We all need someone else to be our "umbrella" sometimes.
Love those wellies, too!!
