I dug out one of my older digis

Well, for this card I was stumped. Phindy's Place Challenge Blog has "Thinking of You/Get Well" as a theme this week. I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do for this one. Sooooooooo, I went searching for a sentiment first. I found one that worked for the challenge and as soon as I read it, this sweet little digi came to mind. The sentiment says, "Until the sun comes out again for you, my umbrella is big enough for two." Don't they work nicely together? As usual, I colored this little guy with watercolors. I didn't know what to do with the raindrops and the puddles so I added some glue, when it dried it was clear and shiny which gives it a "wet" look. Kinda cool.
I then had to search for papers to use. Of course, I had to use one of my new paper packs, this one was from Walmart, relatively cheap, and I love the papers. Since this is an image that could be used for a more masculine card, I decided to go with papers that could be a little bit more masculine too. Since they have green on them, they can be used for the Creative Card Crew Challenge: Show us some green!
I've been slacking on making OWH cards lately. I checked out the OWH Stars and Stamps Challenge blog and found that their challenge right now is "Scallops". That's easy enough, I cut around my image with scalloped scissors and was good to go! Now I just have to keep building my collection of OWH cards so I can mail a box out!
Finally, I am entering this in the Scrap-Creations challenge. Their theme this week is an easy one: Anything Goes!! Gotta love that one!
