Rain Miss Anya

Remember back in February when I posted this?!? Well, I must say that 6 months later, I'm kindof slacking a bit, lol. But here is my first card to send out. Shaela loves yellow umbrellas and while she already owns this stamp set, I just thought this image would suit her best. I typically use my sewing machine to stitch, but since I only had floss that matched, I actually stitched this whole thing by hand. Lastly, you can't see it at all, but there is glitter on the jacket and umbrella!

Paper: K&Co
Stamps: The Greeting Farm, sentiment is PTI
PTI Ribbon and Buttons, Pearls, Copics, Nestabilities, and Crystal Stickles


I hope you all have a great Tuesday! It's back to work for me...and ironically, it's been raining the last few days.
