Rain or Shine...

We had a lovely spring rain last night -- and will get a lovely spring snow Sunday night. Ugh. Well, I am hoping that the rain returns soon. I love the sound of it on my deck, and this morning when I woke up, there was a delicious fog all around that made me feel like I was in England! It burned off by 10 a.m. and left a cloudless sky.

Sometimes clouds are really fun. Like when they are die cuts from The {Stamps} of Life! Both the umbrella and the cloud dies are fabulous designs by Stephanie Barnard:
The fun stamps are from umbrella4you. You can find the Umbrella Die here and the Cloud Die here.
I stamped the umbrella using Stephanie's Premium Strawberry ink, and filled in with Cornflower. The dots are colored with a Copic marker. I added some Cherries Jubilee buttons by Buttons Galore and 3/8" Aqua Floral Satin ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
On another note, I wanted to share a photo of me and my sweet stamping friend, Jami Bova. I had the pleasure of meeting her on my trip to Arizona, and we had time to snap a little photo!
