Hello Friend!

The challenge for Stamping Vacation gives a choice of sentiment to base your card on.  I chose the sentiment "Maybe I can't stop the rain, but I'll always share my umbrella."  When I saw this digi stamp on Sliekje digi Stamps blog, I knew it was the perfect image for this challenge.  I used the sketch from Anyone for Anya, but it is not eligible for the challenge.  I also entered this card in the Anything Goes challenge for  Cowgirl's Sunday Stampen Challenge .

The card has a 6x6 base from CTMH New England Ivy cs and the patterned paper is from the CTMH Lovely Leaves paper packet.  The image is from Sliekje digi Stamps ,who is generous to share her lovely art for free, and I colored it with Sargent Art Water Pencils and blended it with baby oil.  I mounted the image on CTMH Outdoor Denim.  The sentiment is using the Inked God font and I used CTMH waxy flax for decoration.
