Feeling Under the Weather?

A cheery get well card for a few challenges at A Passion for Papertrey, the Rainy Day Challenge at Lily Pad, and the bright color challenge at ColourQ.  Two of the challenges were a breeze to combine, since they were both weather related.  I computer generated the sentiment "Feeling under the weather," (since I did not have a stamp with that sentiment), and die cut it using this Make it Monday technique.

At A Passion for Papertrey the Challenge: Whatever the Weather! ~ The challenge for the next fortnight is entitled "Whatever the weather" - perfectly appropriate if you live in the UK at the moment as we've certainly be having some "weather" here these last few days!!

At Lily Pad Cards ~ Simon Says Stamp Presents a Rainy Day Challenge ~

April showers are indeed on our minds over at the Lily Pad, and we decided to challenge y’all to create a card that has a theme this time: rain!

The challenge. Make a card that’s got some rain or rain-related images/thoughts/product, etc. There are no product restrictions, and you can enter as many cards as you wish as long as they were not made before today’s date.

Supplies ~  
Stamps: PTI Think Big Favorites # 10, Unity Rain & Flowers
Paper: PTI Soft Stone, SU Naturals White
Ink:  SU Always Artichoke, Pear  Pizzazz, SU Markers Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango
Dies: PTI Double Ended Banners
Additional Supplies: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Snowflakes, Me & My Big Ideas Rhinestones

Thanks so much for stopping!
Wishing you Sunshine for Mother's Day!
