Rain or Shine..

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning! I am up on the SRM blog today with a fun "pick me up" kind of card.
We all know that sometimes we just need someone to show they care, and a card is a perfect way to do that! 
I used Jane's Doodle's Rain or Shine set.  It was colored with Copic markers and then a bit of depth was added with coordinating colored pencils.

I added Stickles to give it a bit of sparkle and a scattering of dew drops.  I have joined the Misti bandwagon and have fallen head over heels for it!  I love that I can stamp my sentiment in a straight line rather than my usual wonky way! (Or a whole lotta prayin' and some luck! LOL)

Tonight is a bitter sweet night. 
Cort graduates from her high school/Cross roads school.  This has been a school that has gone above and beyond for its students.  The staff shows such love and respect for our kids that I wish the outside world would take lessons.
I know I will be a mess tonight.  
So many changes this year for Cort.....for me. 
"How did she grow up so quickly?" 
And yet it's here.
The next chapter needs to begin......but with a few tears from this mama.

Tim Holtz Distress Crayon's Experiment #2!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning! Happy Memorial Weekend to you!
I was up on the SRM Blog a couple of days ago with this card. The background was another experiment in using Tim Holtz's Distress Crayons, a circle stencil, and a baby wipe.  I colored the background black, laid the stencil over it, and wiped it off with a baby wipe to reveal the lighter gray circles.  Why I thought it would be great for a spring card is beyond me!  But I did it!  I paired it with felt JustRite flowers and a sentiment from SRM Stickers.

It's an odd combination for sure, but I do think it makes the flower pop a bit!
Cortney is home for the weekend, so we are planning on spending the day in the pool.  
Have a wonderful day!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
