Comfort on Difficult Days

A cute umbrella and boots help rain look,...well, fashionable.

(stamps: Verve New Mercies, DoCrafts Puddles of Love  dies:My Favorite Things Cross-Stitched Ovals/Peek-A-Boo Wonky Windows  other:Prima flowers, enamel dots)

I'm sure I was thinking of Madeline when I colored this image..."we love our bread, we love our butter...but most of all..."

That being said...I paired it with an encouraging sentiment for the following challenge~


These flowers were passed on to me and I thought they would add that something-something to the extra space in the sentiment window.

There are designers that ROCK these flowers~I did my best to channel that look. ;)

Though it's not my usual style, I enjoyed playing with the 3D aspect!

I'll probably be paranoid about how to send it, though.

The peek-a-boo/partially distressed image panel and wonky, angled sentiment window speak to my Marlenaness.

Thanks for stopping by~

Well done stepping outside your comfort zone while still keeping this darling card unmistakably "Marlena!" I love your sweet image and think you are right about how well the 3D flowers work with your design! They look flat enough that a piece of extra card on top would make it survive the mails. Thank you for entering it in the Shower Word challenge at JUGS!! Hugs, Darnell
