And I'm not talking about the Hail Mary kind of hail!! I'm talking about the "spring" in Wisconsin kind of hail!!
So I set out to make a spring card ....our lovely weather inspired me. I had a few Tildas lying around that hadn't seen ink yet & this one was perfect....
This is Tilda as Butterfly from the Chasing Butterflies Collection. This was my second attempt, my first is in the circular file. That one was colored with Copics, but they were not agreeing with me. So ....this one is colored with Prismas. Lots of glitter added to the wings & the flowers. The papers are Basic Grey Kioshi. Purple is not a color I use often, but I've been seeing some *gorgeous* cards lately using it & thought what the heck.....I hadn't used any papers from this pack so I broke it open!
I used Glamour Dust on her wings --- I like this better than Stickles for a "thin" layer of bling. And since I worked so hard coloring her wings, I wanted them to show :)
I am entering this into the following challenges:
7 Kids College Fund -- Easter & Spring Challenge #19
The Beary Scrap -- Wings & Feathers
Simon Says Stamp -- Card for a Child
All That Scraps -- Magnolia challenge
So on to the hail --- it was raining pretty much all day today. Typical April day in Wisconsin. Being the very thoughtful mom that I am, I drove to pick up my kids from the bus stop. You know, since it was raining. I was reading the paper, when I heard something that sounded like cracking. I thought "what the heck, did my window just break?". I looked up & it was hailing! I felt very unsafe in my car, lol
This is what our deck looked like when we got home. See that nice sheet of ice along with the hail? Makes for TERRIFIC driving conditions! Especially during rush hour.
My poor tulips. It happens every year. Every year I think they get a bit tougher. Pretty soon they'll start blooming in January, lol.
Thanks so much for visiting. Gotta go catch the last part of Dancing With the Stars! I know, I'm a sucker for those educational shows :)
