A Little Rain

~ Hi Everyone ~
 My elderly aunt fell and broke her rib...ouch, poor thing.  She is also in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's and is a nursing facility. She was always such a vibrant, intelligent, strong woman.  It's sad to know she is going through all that. So I'm sending her this "cheer me up" card I made using the Simply Charmed cart..definitely one of my fav carts right now :)
I hope it will do the trick and put a smile on her face :)...
it put one on mine :) 
The inspiration for this design came from the "Sweet Somethings" stamp set from Scrappy Mom's and of course I had to use those adorable Peachy Keen "Everyday Character Face Assortment" stamps !


details :
5.5 x 8.5 card base using white SU card stock
Craft card stock layer 5.25 x 8.25
patterned paper from Joanne's paper bin 5 x 8
cloud cut @ 3.25
flowers and layer cut @ 2.25
inking with SU stamps and sponge technique
sentiment cut @ 1 inch and frame cut @ 1.25
embellishments : white organza ribbon, white sakura gel pen, SU chalks for checks, inking with SU inks and sponge technique
Pin It!
