Rainy Day Challenge

Hello everyone - thanks for stopping by!
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  It has been so pretty here today.  I spent about an hour outside, soaking up the sun and reading a great book.  It was so nice, especially after the cooler temps we have had lately!

I also spent some time in my Craft Corner today playing with my project for the upcoming Peachy Keen Spring Blog Hop.  I'll have more details about that for you later. In the meantime,do you need a fun challenge to play along with? We have two great challenges going on over at The Peachy Keen Connection!  My friend Cassandra is hosting a "Birthday Theme" Challenge and I am hosting a "Rainy Day" Challenge.  For my challenge, you can create any spring project with a "Rainy" theme.  Here are the general rules for both challenges:

We're sponsoring TWO challenges this month and will be awarding one $25 Gift Certificate to one random winner from each challenge.  If you enter both challenges, you double your chances of winning a prize, but you do need to create one project for each challenge, as combining challenges is not allowed.
Using Peachy Keen Stamps on your project IS a requirement if you want to be considered to win the Gift Certificate! 
You will have until Tuesday, April 9th at Midnight to play along.
We will randomly choose a winner from each group of challenge entries.  Those winners will be announced and their photo featured here on the PK Connection on Wednesday, April 10th.

Here's the card I created for the "Rainy Day" Challenge....
(click on photo to enlarge)

* That cute little boot is a cutting file from "Miss Kate Cuttables".  I used the offset feature to create a shadow of the boot.  Then I duplicated the shadow, flipped it and welded the two together to create my card base.
* Those darling little ducks are from the new April Stamps Release (PKSC-16) by Peachy Keen Stamps.  I paper pieced the ducks and colored their sweet faces with my Copic Markers.

 * I covered the puddle and the tiny little raindrops with Glossy Accents for a wet look.  Those raindrops are actually flower petals from an old Martha Stewart punch -they made perfect raindrops!
* The cloud is cut from a sheet of scrapbook paper - you can see the entire sheet in the background.
* Sentiment is from Peachy Keen Stamps Duck Dolls (PK-266)

 Ok - that's my card for the challenge...I would love to see your creation linked up with us at The Peachy Keen Connection soon - hope you can play along!

Until next time,
