Rain, Rain, Go Away...

Seriously, I don't know about any of you, but I am SICK of rain!! I know it is great for the farmers, which I am surrounded by so that I am thankful for that...but come on!! I can't remember the last weekend we had without rain. I guess I shouldn't complain though. So far, it has been a pretty mild summer here in S. IL., with the exception of a week of VERY hot temps, KNOCK ON WOOD!!
For my card today, I decided to use the Rainy Day Friends set from Paper Pretties. It is now available in rubber, which means I need to get my order in!! I love clear stamps, but if I can have rubber..that is the way I go!! I don't know if it is because that is what I started with, and love, or what, but I still love them. What's funny is the fact that it is WAY easier to stamp with clear stamps, and they take up less space, but I just love the smell of new rubber!! Anywho, I stamped my Sophia from the Rainy Day Friends set on an MFT Perfect Panel, and then colored her in with my Copics. She was then cut out and embossed with my Cuttlebug. The colors on this card are So Saffron, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery. the DSP is from the Delicate Dots pack from SU. I stamped my sentiment directly on my DP with memento Tuxedo Black, and then added the brads from Hobby Lobby to the bottom and top corners. The ribbons are all from SU, and the spiral clip is from Joann's. I used a large white grommet from SU to put my ribbon through. Isn't it cute??
Well, that is it for me now!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
