Fun Puddles

Hello Everyone! Hope you have had a good week! It has been beautiful here with cool temperatures at night and warm sunny days. Such a welcome relief after two weeks of rain.

When I found this image on Digital Two for Tuesday , I had to smile as I remembered when my girls loved to play in the puddles. They would jump and splash but then they would try to float leaves on the water like they were sailing big ships.

I started today's card with a black card stock base. I then layered the Fall Stack DP onto that. This little girl image is colored with Prismas. I used my Nesties to cut out the image and shadowed the edges with Weathered Wood distress ink.I added the brads to the corners and I then adhered it with dimensionals. The pink bow was added to bring out the color in her bonnet. I also scalloped the opening edge of the card just to add some interest.

We always had such fun in those puddles! Thanks for joining me down memory lane and sharing the joy with me as this little one also discovers fun puddles! We can all use a little fun like this don't you think? I hope you all have a blessed weekend and you will stop by again soon! I so enjoy hearing from you and sharing my crafting fun!!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
