Rainy Day and Vacation Give-Away.

No, sorry - I am not giving away a vacation. below for the details.

I had such fun making this card for the Simon Says Stamp "Rainy Day" Challenge over at the amazing Lily Pad Card blog. There is always something great hoppin' over there.

Months ago my sweet blogging buddy Sheila turned me on to Whipper Snapper stamps (they are from her home state, Wisconsin). I never thought I was into cute animals, but these guys have such personalities! This is Tucan Can (CT966) and he makes me smile. I stationed him with a colorful umbrella (from the April Simon Says Stamp kit) on a hand-cut cloud card base. He has some dimension and, yes, googly eyes! The rain is MS glitter applied with a glue stamp to Hero Arts "Scattered Dots" (CG267). I don't often think to use glue on my stamps - it is serious fun.

I am heading out on a little road trip (to southern California for some fun and family visits) with the newly-retired hubby. I will sooooo miss blogging and visiting your blogs to see your amazing creations (& offering my candid comments) so I am offering a little vacation (mine!) give-away.

I had so many nice comments on the necklace that I made and shared here that I made another one. This one is crocheted copper wire with some multifaceted glass beads. There is a matching pair of pierced earrings, too. Lacey and light for summer. The length is adjustable for every neck and outfit.

Just leave a comment here so I know you'll miss me and I will pick a random winner when I return on May 24th.I will ship anywhere!

As always, thanks for visiting. I will see you upon my return!
