Happy Wednesday, blog friends!!  

It's time for another What If? Wednesday challenge at The House That Stamps Built and this week it's an inspiration challenge.  I love playing with inspiration challenges (I know that's weird....most people don't like them) and have lots of fun seeing what I can create using them.  

Here's the inspiration we're challenged with this week...

Are your creative wheels spinning?  This is such a great inspiration piece and I hope you'll give it a try and play along.  If you do, you'll be in the running for some great RI stamps.  You ecan see the details at The House.

Here is a card I made using this inspiration

I was drawn to the "swirls" and "streaks" of rain as much as the colors.  I chose to use RI Stamp #6909-M "Pinwheel Positive" and used heat embossing with white ep to create the "swirls".  I then used watercolor paints to add the background color and once dry, I added stickles in streaks to create the pouring rain.  My sentiment die is from My Favorite Things and was a freebie.  I cut the sentiment 3 times with different cs colors and off set them in order to get the "shadow" look.  The stitched rectangle frame die is also from MFT.    

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join the challenge at The House.  If you'd like to see more inspiration, check out the other Rock'll see some fabulous cards.

Hi there, blog friends!  

There's a new CAS challenge at Outlawz Challenes and it's all about humor.  The challenge is hosted by the very talented Linda Anderson and here is her challenge.

April is National Humor Month. Laughter is the best medicine. It's infectious, and far more contagious than any cough, sniffle or sneeze. Let's make a CAS card this week filled with humor, a joke, or something punny.

Here is a card I made for the challenge using this Bugaboo digi.   I don't often use digi stamps because I have a healthy (understatement) collection of rubber and clear stamps and love using them.  That said, the sponsors for some of the CAS challenges have been digi stamp companies and I wanted to try using them in an effor to support their sponsorship.  I have to say, these stamps are really fun to use.  

My image can been seen here.  I printed it on Copic Xpress paper and colored with (my favorites) Copic markers.  

I hope to see you playing in the challenge.  You have until mid-night Saturday, April 18 to play and enter into the drawing for some awesome prizes.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous week.
