3M: Grey Skies happy

Hi friends!

Happy National Library Week!
I'm sure you know by now how much I adore books and reading ~
so it's a great joy to celebrate the start of a week that celebrates both ♥

Today's card has an image on it that is new to me ...
 I love the soft, storybook look this has to it :)
It's an image called Grey Skies Happy by Phyllis Harris for Unity Stamp Co.
It was sent to me by Jeanette, 
as she is the hostess of this round of the 3 Musketeers (3M)
 stamped image exchange.
The 3 Musketeers = Barb, Jeanette and I and we take turns each month,
sending out a surprise image and then we all make a card with it.
Jeanette sure sent us a beauty!

This is my take and the card I came up with using
a few scraps of dsp from my bin and cardstock:

Jeanette also sent a sentiment to go along with the image,
but I just couldn't get it to work on the front of the card :/
I'll leave this blank for now and come up with something 
that works with it when the time is right :)

Thank you, Jeanette, for this super sweet image to work with this month.
Barb is up next,

and I have no doubt it will be something wonderful

Big hugs, bigger blessings!

  16. This reminds me of an old commercial here where a bunch of kids were wearing rain gear singing: "We are Nippersinkers, we're in luck. If it rains all day, we'll just act like a duck...Quack quack waddle waddle" Ok maybe I'm a bit loopy today! LOL
