Better Weather Days Ahead

Yay for October!  This is my favorite stamping month because of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges on Splitcoaststampers.   If you haven't heard about them, go over and check them out.   The first challenge is from Lydia and she asked us to make a card inspired by our least favorite weather.  Living in Texas, I hate being hot.  The sun is not my friend at all and neither is the humidity!   I thought I'd use my Lawn Fawn dies and make a card that would be useful for someone going through a tough time.   The layout is based on the current sketch at The Paper Players.
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink Hello Sunshine
Ink:  Versafine Black Onyx
Paper:  Stampin' Up! Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Tools/Embellishments:  My Favorite Things Blueprints 20, Lawn Fawn Spring Showers dies, Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangles dies, Stampin' Up! Crushed Curry Baker's Twine, Stampin' Up! Neutrals Buttons

We were so excited to find that we had caterpillars in our butterfly garden!!   They will be Monarch butterflies, so that's even more exciting.  It is so fun to just watch them eat and crawl.   


  1. Rita, this is just fabulous! I live in GA and can relate to the humidity, but I must admit, I do love summer! LOL! I love the sentiment! It is so inspiring and will brighten someones day!
