Glistening in the Rain

lps_glisteningintherain_tbu This week’s inspiration over at the LPS blog is a color combo — Bashful Blue, Old Olive, and Tangerine Tango. I think it is just a stunning combo! For more deets about how to play along with us go      to  the LPS blog! The keyword is LPSC05.

I put alot of TLC into this card, although it isn’t obvious, lol. After cutting the die out, I handstitched the dp to the Old Olive paper with a combo of Tangerine and Blue thread. My darling little image got lots of love, too – I colored her blue (all coloring done with Copics) and used Waterfall Stickles on her coat and umbrella. I used Orange Marmalade Distress Stickles on her boots. I added Crystal Effecta for the pool of water and I had forgotten, in comparison, how much I like the Ranger Glossy better. I used Icicle Stickles to make raindrops, and finally, Peeled Paint Distress Stickles around the edges of the scalloped Circle.

I chose my sentiment because on my drive to work, I often see kids standing in the rain waiting for the bus. It breaks my heart that there is no one to wait with them. So, for each one I pass, I quietly hope for the bus to get there just a little sooner. Weird, I know, but that’s why I picked it 🙂

Chocolate Treats

pad_chocolate-treats_tbuI made this card using Pez-a-Doodle stamps, because I was in the mood for some chocolate yummeis and we didn’t have any! So, I was forced to make my own, lol. I colored each treat with Cipcs, and then painted the pink Layer with Pink Poinsetta Shimmerz Blingz.  Then I did the Strawberries with Shimmerz Royal Red Paint. I applied some Dew Drops in strategic places, and tied a big ole’ bow (that’s how we say it in the South – bwahahahahaha) across the bottom. And since I can’t eat I’ve just been staring at it for hours. I think I need help, lol.
