No Matter the Weather...

May 1, 2013

Happy Wednesday, everyone!!  I hope you've had a good week so far.  Speaking of weather...Montana is pretty much bi-polar right now.  It will be sunshining & warm one minute, then windy the next, then raining while the sun is shining, and then cold, snowing & completely grey...all in the matter of one day.  Ha!  Today has actually been really nice, and it is supposed to be accompanied by even more warmth for at least  a few days.  Then it will probably blizzard.  :)  Oh, life in the north.

WPlus9 is sponsoring the 10 Minute Craft Dash this week, so some of us decided to play along with them!  The colors are two of my FAVES (pink & aqua), and I created this CAS cutie in 9 minutes, 14 seconds.  I even took a 2 minute phone call from my gramma Penny while creating it.  Ha!!  I love how the cloud with garland rain turned out...check it!
1. Make 5-inch square card from vintage cream cardstock.
2. Adhere the diecut Polaroid frame to the front, then attach a peice of washi tape to the right side.
3. Fussy cut the top part of the cloud, then adhere to the left side of the frame.
4. Attach the garland underneath the smaller cloud shape.
5. Stamp the sentiment to it, then finish with gold teeny alphas.
6. Attach the stars to the top & sequins to the bottom to finish.
