Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday.
Its the fabulous Bobby's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has a wonderful code word for us:
Now, there is still snow on the ground here, so it's been a while since we really saw a good downpour of rain and, I must admit, I am really looking forward to just feeling a good downpour :-) In fact, when I made this card we hadn't seen rain for about 4 months, as it was early February and all we had seen here in Minnesota was....... snow!
I almost called this post... OHM... it's raining!
I used the meditating monkey from the Katzelkraft "Les Jungles" set. I have always loved the look of this silly monkey and the way he had one eye open and one eye closed. That gave me the idea to use my Simon Says Stamp rain stencil to create rain only on the side where his eye was open.
You might be thinking, oh... come on, Jaydee. How could it be raining only on one half of the monkey and not the other? Well, I promise you I have been in many cities where it literally was raining on one side of the road and sunny on the other! So, a little poetic license wasn't too far from the truth!!! :-)
I paired the image and background with what I thought was the perfect sentiment!
I stamped my monkey and colored him with my Copic markers. I then took my stencil and created a rainstorm on the right of him (my right... his left :-) He is male, right?) I mounted the monkey onto a piece of fun foam and popped him onto my card base.
Here is my full card:
This image just makes me smile, and I hope it makes you smile, too :-)
I hope you will play along with us this week. If you do, and you are chosen as our winner, there is a great gift card from our sponsor, Kylie and her online store
If you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than our fabulous design team creations.
I'll be back again tomorrow with my Paper Players card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
