Rainy Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
We have been having several rainy days and more on the way. I decided to play along with a rainy day theme. The card is 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. I was inspired by the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I began the layers with the yellow solid cardstock and I continued with solid colors. This is not my usual style of papers--you know I love patterned papers--but I chose the solids this time. All the papers are from my scrap stack. My younger grandsons enjoy being outside on rainy days but they do not bother with any rain gear!!

Cricut Cartridges:
Everyday Paper Dolls - Boy wearing rain gear and the umbrella are layered together and is cut 3"h.
Disney Pooh and Friends -  Cloud and raindrops cut 3"w.  The cloud is used for the rain puddle. I failed to record the name of the cartridge for the gray cloud.
Cricut Font and Basic Shapes - Rainy Day is cut 1.74" w, 1.18" h.
Paisley - Heart button is cut 1" w. I added a bow with Sew Easy Fancy floss.
