You can't have a rainbow without a little rain

Bright colors make me so happy!  I guess they just remind me of sun and summer and all things good.  This card is chocked full of them too!  Again I am using a Lawn Fawn stamp as the main image and the sentiment comes from Pink Cat Studio.  I really wanted to use a different sentiment that said, "You can't have a RAINBOW without a little RAIN."  But I don't have that in stamp form and no printer at home, so couldn't make it on the computer.  I used this one instead and although the raindrops and umbrella contradict it, I think it has a pretty sunny feel, especially with the bitg sun shape as the  backdrop.

This card is based on a sketch from Papercrafts Magazine.  They are having a sketch challenge over at Moxie Fab World right now, featuring this sketch and others.  I was so intimidated when I first saw this sketch, but then it just came to me.and I feel pretty happy about it.  Like I said, just the colors perk me up.

Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

Enjoying Lawn Fawn

Have you checked out Lawn Fawn stamps?  They have some super cute stuff!  I've been having fun with a few sets I bought.  They don't have them in my neck of the woods though, but I found some when I was visiting one of my besties in MN.

Speaking of woods, we took Sophie on her first camping trip in July and she loved it.  Here is a page I made of her and Grandma while camping.  Oh and how cute they matched! I loved using my new Petite Pendant Punch from SU! for the banner since they are so fun, and I used a Hero Arts alphabet for the letters.

This next one is just a silly card I made with the LF porcupine stamp.  The have a sentiment in that set that says "I pine for you!"- I changed it and put "I PORCU-pine for you!" on th inside. :)

Thanks for stopping!
