Rain or Shine / CTO #106



Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter. I had Easter dinner at my house and had a wonderful time with my family. I was lucky enough to have my parents, my husbands Mom, my sister, two of my nieces, my nephew, my children and my grandchildren spend easter with my husband and I. The only bad thing was time went by way to fast!!!

Speaking of time going by fast, it is already time for a new challenge over at Celebrate The Occasion.
This week the challenge is April Showers (must use an umbrella). The design team has some fun creations to spark your mojo so I hope you'll stop by the blog and take a peek.


For my card I used a cut file from Silhouette Studio of a couple under an umbrella. I chose to cut it out of A "LOVE" script paper rather than just plain black card stock. I created my sentiment on my computer.




Supplies used: card stock - vanilla, black; patterned papers - Black and Ivory Love Script by Canvas Corp, paper from Stella & Rose and Quite Contrary by My Minds Eye; label - Nostalgia by My Minds Eye; tag- Staples Office Supply; border punch - EK Success; ribbon - Michaels; twine -  Liz's Paper Loft Boutique; rhinestones - Lush by My Minds Eye; Silhouette Studio cut file; font - Jenna Sue; Pop Dots.
