Rain, Rain, Go Away! At least good weather on it's way!

Take a Picture, it will Last Longer

The Sketch for this card is from MFT Sketch
I used my new die from Quickutz, the Polaroid, and the pictures inside are cutouts from the LLBean Catalog.
The Paper is Core'dinations 
The Ribbon is Stampin' Up!
The Sentiment is Color Bok, Lucky You!

Thank You!  That was So Sweet!

The inside of the card says "That was So Sweet!"
I used 4 different kinds of Basic Grey Paper
The Core'dinations paper is Flower Power
I used images from Lisa's Altered Art
Versa Magic Midnight Black for the inking
I used a Uniball Gel Pen for the polka dots
Thank you is Hero Arts Alphabet stamps one letter at a time, and the bubble is Color Bok

This is Deb's song, and her punch, which I think is from Fiskars.

I thought this saying was funny for ants, they have to have a strong back for all they carry!
Here comes the Sun

The leafs are hand drawn and colored with copics
The middle leaf is popped out because the Twist today is DIMENSION
The Sun is also popped off the card, and the circle was Quickutz nesting circle
The saying is DCWV
