You are my umbrella...

Hi everyone. Well...another wonderful weekend...hope you all had a chance to relax. I had a lazy 2 days...and it was absolutely fantabulous!! I got a chance to finish a card and color a couple of images...oh, and I had some time to do some online shopping for new craft supplies! Seriously...I only purchased things that I need!!!'s a little card I created for my sister, Dee. (I have to send her an email and tell her not to check out my blog this week!) She's such a great sister...and I am just so thankful that she's my friend too. She really is my "umbrella in the storms of life"!'s my card recipe:

Cardstock: Stampin Up; DPs are from my scrap stash
Sentiment: Whipper Snapper Designs
Pearls, ribbon, & charm: my stash
Copics: Skin - E11, 00, 000, 0000, & R21 for cheeks; raincoat, umbrella, & boots - R89, 85, 83, 81; Hair - E25, 99, 33, & YR21; Puddle- BG72 & 10; shadow - C1.
I used Inkssentials Glossy Accents for ti;da's raincoat, boots, umbrella, and puddle; aqua stickles for the raindrops; and cotton candy stickles for the lace on Tilda's umbrella and to outline the image that was cut out w/my Cuttlebug & Nestabilities.

I hope you enjoy her...I generally use lighter colors, but wanted to color this image with "jewel" tones just for Dee! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week!! Pat

Oh Pat, another beautiful creation. I agree with all the previous comments. This card is spectacular! Soon you'll be on several design teams, hopefully the Magnolicious team. Then maybe you can quit your nursing job and spend time creating, creating. Judi
