IB67 Rainy Day Party

Hello peeps!  It's Thursday...yay, the week is almost over!  We are taking another load from my dad's house to the auction tomorrow and Saturday, so it's going to be a busy weekend, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel! 

Laurel has a delightful Inspired By inspiration prompt for us today, and she convinced me to break into some "hoarded" papers from Simple Stories' I Am line!  So here we go:

And here is her pretty prompt:

I went with the colors more than the theme, but I did use some cloud dies to create my focal point:

I diecut them in Very Vanilla cardstock, then added some Dazzling Diamonds layers behind them (a wee bit hard to see), and stamped some sentiments on them.  I did add a few little sprigs behind them because the Sunday Stamps sketch was perfect for it:

They were diecut from the Flourish thinlets, colored with a Flirty Flamingo marker and accented with a bit of Wink of Stella!  I think I will send this card to my college roommate---she just had her hip replaced and could use some cheering up!

I hope you'll play with our fun challenge this week...proof that a party even on a rainy day can be fun!  Check out all the samples at the IB blog!

A warm day calls for a walk in the creek!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
