CR84FN26 - Rain Rain Go Away

The  CR84FN26 challenge this week has some beautiful yellow hues. My good friend Lisa  gave me this adorable stamp and I couldn't wait to ink her up!



The sentiment is from Hero Arts and the adorable Mabel Lucie Attwell A stamp is from The Artistic Stamper. 

The image is stamped on kraft using Ranger Archival Ink and colored with watercolor pencils.

The clouds happened by accident. I stamped the sentiment on Labels 21 and decided it looked like a cloud and decided to create a second one. :)


Here are the beautiful  inspiration colors from CR84FN:



For all the details on the challenge this week go to the CR84FN blog.

For more inspiration the fabulous CR84FN Design Team:

This month we have a brand new guest designer Lin Brandyberry at Sending Hugs! So happy to have her join us!

Happy Birthday Stephanie!  Have a wonderful day and I hope it is very special!


Have a blessed Sunday. My youngest is going to be participating in a May crowning today and I am sure it is going to be wonderful.
