A rainy day...

Today was one of those days.  We were suppose to go camping (in a tent that we've had for 3 years and still haven't used), but then the weather forecast was for thunderstorms.  Oh well, we thought, a little water never hurt.  But then my husband ended up at an emergency dentist appointment this morning and had to have a tooth pulled.  Oy.  Needless to say, the camping trip was cancelled.  We were only going about a half hour from home for one night, so it really wasn't all that sad to cancel (and I know I would NOT have enjoyed sleeping in a tent with a thunderstorm going on around me anyway.  LOL)

So what's a girl to do with a unplanned day at home?  Stamp, of course.

I decided to go against the weather and make a bright, cheery card using Main Street (Whipper Snapper).  The birdhouses are all paper-pieced with Neapolitan (Dear Lizzy by AC).  The little flower garden is two dies; Spring Border (Memory Box) and Fresh Cut Grass (MFT).  The flowers and stems are colored with Copics.  The sentiment is from the Year Round Sentiments set (Hero Arts).  I love the little strip of washi tape that was a gift from a wonderful friend (she actually gave me a whole roll, not just the little strip.  LOL)

So... all in all, not a bad day.  Considering.
Thanks for visiting!
