Gray Skies

Another Gilly ("singing in the rain at Prairie Fairy) creation for me today - I just love her! Prairie Fairy Fridays challenge is "california dreamin'" and decided this card would fit since we are f-i-n-a-l-l-y getting rain and snow (which we have all been "dream'n" would happen, but ya know us Cali-folks, we'll be dream'n of the sunshine in a few days!) I pulled out an old stash of Doodlebug papers I've had for about five years and followed Domi's sketch over at Simon Says
, cuttlebug embossed my clouds, got into my bag of chiffon and tulle and sewed up some flowers, added some glossy accents and glitter to a couple of them, colored up my stickpins and image with my copics. My sweet friend KathyCan is so clever and said I should put part of the lyrics on the front and the other on the inside - she's so smart! Decided it was time to do up another easel card and dolled up the inside too. I picked up some great new dies from Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps
and added some Glossy Accents to my clouds, rain and puddle, oh and Gilly's glasses, too. So much fun for a Saturday!

Thanks for stopping by - try and stay dry!
