Rain, Rain and a "little Snow"

Sorry this was Saturday.. I was late posting :0)

Wow it has been  two days of some "wet" weather her in my part of "Sunny So. Cali"..It rained "all" night long last night, and today we got "Snow". So this what inspired me to pull out my much "Love" C.C. "Honey with Umbrella". I got her from "All That Scraps"   She is absolutely Gorgeous and thought would be great for a day like today when we just sat around in our PJ's and looked out the window. (even my oldest daughter came in to color with me.. Her very first time I must added We had a good time and I think she kinda liked it. :0) I colored Honey's hair and skin and her little dress under neath her rain coat with my Prisma and OMS. If you look at the rain you can see that I added some "Stickles". It really added some sparkles to my raindrops ( love it hehehehe). and you know my motto of never!! too much "bling"  :0) I added some blue rhinestone's with my I-Rock.
This Week's Challenge over the All That Scraps challenge blog is a really cute and easy sketch soo I wanted to make sure I played along.

I actually combined two different digi's ( yes Honey is a digi )  She is plane. So she does not come with the rain or the splash. the other is the "scene" the raindrops and "splash"; is from another set I just wanted to show the actual rain. (I used "Serif Photo plus2 to combine my two.) Printed her on to White Card stock from PTI and then a second time on my paper pack from imaginisce so that I could "paper piece her out fit including her boots and Umbrella. ( She is just Purfecttttt for "paper piecing). I then cut her out with my Large scallop "Oval" Nesti... My Card stock is from PTI. I made my flower with my small EKsuccess flower punch. Sentiment is also from the Rain stamp set. I just love my Ribbon it is a Beautiful Gold shimmer Ribbon that I got in a "gift pack" Yes most is the gift is from one gift pack.. It was a HUGE and Awesome box of goodies that I received). Then I used pop dots to pop everything up.

This is the Inside of my Card. I had to use this Beautiful Sentiment from Paulette over at Create With TLC. I just have to Say thank you each and every time..Paulette ALWAYS has the perfect for what ever your card needs may be.

    I'm so glad that you've joined the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge this week. Your card is so very sweet and makes me yearn for the Spring rain instead of Winter's snow! The sentiment is fabulous - I'm heading to that store after I finish here! I do hope you'll return and play in the SCH challenges again.
