Wishing for a Pocket FULL of Sunshine..

...beacause it has been raining for 2 weeks here now! Mother Nature can be a bit over-rated if you ask The rain has done wonders for the back of our property, which was recently cleared and looks like a beautiful green pasture now:) We have approx. another 1/4 acre that needs tilling and seeding but it will have to wait until Spring.

Anyhoo, on to this snazzy little notebook. I love My Favorite Things stamps simply for paper piecing...its like "dress-up" for the grown-ups! This particular set, Rain or Shine, is a fun one for your girlfriends who many need a little pick- me-up! I used some SU! cs along with some fun patterned paper that was sewn on. The raincoat and ruffle trim on the bottom are paper-pieced. All the coloring is done with Copic markers and the doggie's little coat is shimmered with my Copic Spica pink pen. I added just a few extra embellishments for some bling. The top of the umbrella is a pink Foo-Fa-La button with an adhesive rhinestone in the middle. The sentiment is attached below with a nice pink matte that I ran thru my wizard machine. I have a few different patterns I'm going to be working on this week...I'll share them as they are finished!

How adorable... Makes me want to get out my sewing machine.. but we both know what a disaster that would turn out to be. I don't think cards with blood on them are appreciated!!! Thanks for the email..
