Saving for a Rainy Day .....


Hi! We've had picture postcard weather here in Miami - the kids and I have been in the pool now that the rain has slowed.  It's summer in Florida, and that means rain - lots of it, but we've had two beautiful days and lovin' every second of it! 

  
I saw this color combo challenge on SCS and just love it!  I love colors and using them in my card making -- the rich, vivid colors are so striking and had to play along.  Using Umbrella Riley, I paired this with some melon and orange papers from K and Co - paper piecing the umbrella to match.  I found this sketch in last year's TSG files and thought it would be a good time to give it a try {a year late!}

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope the sun is out shining where you are, too :)

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  4. Kelly, I love the fact that you design the inside of your cards as beautifully as the outside. I often wait until I need the card to finish the inside and then I am rushed. I'm just loving the colors that you are creating with..so bright and vivid. Thanks for that most wonderful comment you left on the Cricut card I made yesterday. Totally lifted my spirits. Blessings.
