Sending you showers of Thanks!

 I recently made a scrapbook layout (you'll see it on July 1st) with some of my favourite papers from the Fine and Dandy line from My Minds Eye and as it always turns out, I had lots of scraps to use. Its one thing I love about card making, I get to use the papers I love, again and again, especially when I make the smaller cards (5" x 3.5").

This card is based on the fabulous ICS sketch created by Dawn.  I happen to know that there are free stamps being offered as a prize this week, so hurry over and play along with the rest of the team!

I printed off the sentiment from this card from an image I created in Paint Shop. I've been looking at a lot of sentiments recently and bemoaning the fact that I didn't have any creative stamps for sentiments and then I realized that I can just make them up, and print them myself! Its not quite as handy as having the stamps, but I am enjoying the flexibility of being able to resize if I need to, or come up with custom sayings. I don't know why I didn't think of it before :)

LOVE the embellishments as rain drops, Rebecca. and great tip on making your own sentiments in a program - I often say "Wish this said ____ or ____ instead" and it never occurred to me to just do it myself!
