Let it Rain .... somewhere else! :(

Hee hee!  

Hi everybody!

I was able to get a few cards in this weekend 
and color up a TON of images, yet to be made into cards!
But it was productive, inky time and that's always fun!

Rain, alas, is not!
Now I do LOVE rainy days -  if I'm home!
or hiking through a trail with a light drizzle ♥
But since I spend my days on the road, 
rain is a disaster here in South Florida and, quite frankly,
terrifies me to drive in!

As you probably know, Splitcoaststampers is having a HYCCT
(hope you can cling to) card drive for the month of October,
benefiting many organizations
 and bringing awareness to needs of the community.
I've done 3/5 challenges thus far and this one was the first card.
The challenge is ......

So my challenge to you is to make a card representing your LEAST favorite weather condition.

Whether the weather be fine
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold
Or whether the weather be hot,
We'll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not. ~Anonymous British poet

My card submission ~

Since I went with a Bugaboo digital stamp,
I went ahead and followed their sketch challenge for this week
and will enter this in their challenge.

I'll also enter this to:  Crafting from the Heart - AG
Fantastic Tuesday - 2 Patterned Papers
Path of Positivity - Resilient (trust God!)

Whatever you may be weathering, know that there are brighter days ahead.
And remember to
Trust God through the storms ♥

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!


  1. AWE!! This is so adorable Kelly!! :) Really wonderful take on the sketch too!! I think I'm with you on this...only FREEZING RAIN really bothers me lots! It causes so many problems!! I do love your wonderful card design!! Thanks for sharing! HUGS :)

  2. hi Kelly this is brilliant I adore that cutie image he would fit in well here in the UK at the moment as it is pouring down, I wish I had a little yellow coat like him to keep dry, lol, that verse is also ACE.

  3. Sweet card just rained here this morning and your one of my lucky coffee lovers blog hop please pop by and send me an email
    hugs Nikki C

  4. Fantastic and adorable! Yup, rain is good occasionally, especially during the night when everyone is tuck in!

  5. Kelly I just love this card and so will its recipient! Love the colors you used and the way you interpreted the sketch.

  6. What a wonderful card! Love the sketch you used too. I am with you- I do not mind the rain if it is not cold, if it is not thundering and lightening and if it is not too heavy. Love sitting out in the sunroom and opening the windows when it is raining. Fab card- I am going to try to do some of the HYCCT challenges.....

  7. Kelly that is a super cute card! This is the 2nd Bugaboo flavored card I have seen and so far I am loving their stamps! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Kelly this is gorgeous - love how you have used the layout, and the image is beautifully coloured. Hugs, and I hope the weather dries up for you soon

  9. Great layout and take on the sketch! Love your bright rainy day card! I agree - hate driving in it, especially when it is heavy!

  10. This is adorable, Kelly. Great take on this week's sketch and fabulous coloring of this sweet Bugaboo image. Thanks so much for joining us at Stella Says Sketch this week!

  11. Perfect SSS card and I have to say, being from the desert, I LOVE the rain.

  12. What an adorable image and design Kelly.

    Hugs Diane

  13. Super cute card. Love your take on the layout. I can relate with all the rain when we had our monsoon season last spring. Hope you get some dry out time soon.

  14. This is darling! I agree with you - I like rain when I'm home, but definitely not when I have to drive in it. Great poem too.

  15. Adorable card! As a child I liked rainy days...even though I couldn't go outside and play. My grandmother would always find things for me to do to keep me occupied. When it rains too much here, I always wish I could send some to the Western part of the US where they need it so much.
    My least favorite weather is winter, and like you, it's because of the driving. I hate driving on icy roads.

  16. Very cute card, Kelly. Great segue from black & white to color!

  17. Perfect papers for this sweet card! What a great card for the HYCCT challenge.

  18. Oh my gosh, so darn cute!! I love the sweet image!! You colored it perfectly!! The design is fabulous!! I love the poem!! I'd have to say snow is my least favorite weather...I lived in the mountains in upstate NY were it snowed like 10 months out of the year!! Not a fan of the white stuff ;) Have a great day :)
