Everyone Has a Rainy Day...

Hi Everyone,

In the midst of getting ready to head back to the East Coast to Newfoundland for my Mom's Family Reunion, I took some time today to get crafty.  I have so much to do and so very little time to do it in but seriously, who can resist taking a little time out to do what you enjoy??  Especially since I will be away from my crafty space for the next month!  Don't worry, I took some time to prepare and schedule blog posts so that I am able to keep up to date with you guys. :)

Today, I decided to play along with the GORGEOUS colour combination over at Colour Me...!  This week is Lost Lagoon (a new favourite of mine!), Island Indigo, Smoky Slate and a neutral.  Love it!

I also wanted to play along with the FABULOUS sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:

Here is my card for these challenges:

If you are looking for the Island Indigo, both the sentiment and the umbrella are in that colour.  I just love this new Stampin' Up! Hostess Set - Life's Adventure - every image in there is just so darn cute!

Card Recipe:

Card Stock: Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Moonlight DSP Stack
Stamp Sets: Life's Adventure (Hostess)
Ink: Lost Lagoon, Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Island Indigo
Tools/Techniques: Chalk Talk Framelits, Basic Grey Baker's Twine

I would love if you would take some time to follow my blog!

Thanks for dropping by!
