Rain, Rain, Go Away!

Busy day for me!  Lots of fabulous new releases so this is my second post of the day.  I'd love it if you checked out my first post HERE, too.

It's Friday, so you know what that means?  Loads of new releases by the amazing Sandra Caldwell.  I'm working with #1306 Glamour Gertrude. I can't really describe the expression on her face, but I guess it sort of looked resigned. That's what we've been in CA with all the rain, but it's kind of funny, as soon as I finished this card, the sun came out.  WooHoo!  I've used papers from the Noah's Ark stack by Debbie Mumm for JoAnn's (an oldie) and added die cut clouds.

Here's a closeup of the adorable #1306 Glamour Gertrude. She's colored with Copics and I've added some flat backed pearls for her earrings.  Gotta say I had a ball coloring her hair and I can imagine a couple more ways to do it too.  I used a craft knife to cut a slot in the waves to insert Gertrude.  Hope she doesn't float away.  Been lots of flooding across the state.  Guess the drought is over.  The extra raindrops were made my cutting a mini heart punch in half.

Be sure to visit the Sandra Caldwell Stamp fans FB page and check out the fab creations from the new release by my DT sisters and Sandra's Etsy Shop (babycakesdnd) to see them all.

I'll be adding this to the Outlawz Twisted Thursday AG challenge, the DL.Art February Linky Challenge, Simon Says Wednesday AG, Crafts Galore Encore Feb AG #3, Crafter's Cafe No Red or Pink, Your Scrapbook Place AG, the Crafty Addicts February AG, TTRCD week of Feb 21st and Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #52 AG.
