Rain, Rain, Go AWAY

I know that rain is good for the Earth,
but it's not so good for my mental state.

I had a hard time getting into a crafty groove this weekend,
which stunk since we couldn't do anything outside.

I was able to make this cute card.

My friend Angie sent me these card blanks as a thank you RAK.
Thank you, Angie!!

As soon as I saw it I knew it needed a charm!

The charm is from my stash - I think it's Making Memories.
I have a whole new respect for my jewelry making friends - those jump rings gave me anxiety.

Some washi tape, paper from Pink Paislee, and a Heidi Grace sticker complete the front.

I used the same paper to line the inside.

My apologies for the quality of the photos - 
that's what happens when the sun is hiding.

It looks like we may get a break from the rain tomorrow,
keep your fingers crossed for me!

What's the weather like where you live?

  6. send that rain my way! I just spent over an hour watering my plants! But, I hear ya' when it rains a lot it can get to be a bummer. Love your card - you made me giggle about the jump rings, but that charm is perfection in there!

  7. Hey Melissa, love the card & I know what you mean about jewelry making. Its the one craft that intimidates me, lol.
