wishing you sunshine

Hi Everyone!  How was your weekend?  Ours was good.  We didn't do much of anything and just hung our around the house.  Sometimes, doing nothing is the perfect way to spend the weekend. 

Today is my first time posting over on the Stampavie blog as a design team member.  I'm still over the moon that I get to design for them so I'm excited to really get started.  (By the way, have you seen the new Christmas images on the website?  Soooooo cute!!!)

I thought I would share a card I created with one of the adorable images from Tina Wenke called Hedgehog with Umbrella.  Isn't this image so cute?!

I stamped my image on white cardstock and colored her with copic markers.  I used some patterned paper from October Afternoon's Detour collection along with some kraft, cream, and red cardstocks to create my card.  I finished it off with some stitching and some red buttons and twine.  I added some Glossy Accents (by Ranger) to the umbrella and rain drops to make them nice and shiny.

Have a great week!
