Rain, Rain, It's OK!

Today here in the metro Atlanta area we have rain.  Not just a little drizzle here or there....but massive amounts of the wet stuff.
It would be a great day for cleaning out a closet (ain't gonna happen).
It would be a great day for cleaning a bathroom (ain't gonna happen).
It would be a great day for some laundry (uh...maybe...).
It would be a great day to read a book (yeah...).
It would be a great day for some paper crafting (OH YEAH!)!

I think that's what I will do.  I want to try my hand at some glass etching.  Sounds fun to me....

But before I get going I do have a few little chores to take care of.  Well, one big's doggie bathing time.  Shhh....don't tell her.  Otherwise she might hide and I won't be able to find her.  LOL!

Here are a few cards I made with some leftover papers from the Simon Says Stamp Card kit for September, 2013.
I enjoyed this kit but using the chalked printed papers was a bit of a challenge for me.  A challenge is always good for the brain, though.
Here are my very simple cards:
 The card above had the bicycle printed on the paper already.  I just hand drew and cut some clouds from complimenting papers....and added the little banner on some foam tape.  The kit came with the little banner stencil so it was oh-so-easy to create.  I used my distress tool to scuff up the edges a bit.
This card was just cut and slap on with some adhesive.  I just couldn't throw this paper into a card it was made!
I added the little wood veneer that came with the kit and adhered it with some Glossy Accents.  

And's another bicycle card.  The kit came with a cute metal bicycle kit that just had to get used!
Again, I just hand cut some clouds and added a "path".

Again, I used the distress tool for the edges.  Fun!

I hope you can join me in a crafty sort of day!

Happy Sunday!


  1. Here in Central TX we had T storms & some much needed rain in the afternoon/evng. My dog does not like T storms or rain and definitely does not like baths. I did laundry. Like your bike cards. Like the banner chalkboard look.
