Always Look for the Rainbow

Today is one of those days that's a bit gloomy, overcast, and somewhat dark.  The rain comes and goes, and you can feel Autumn in the air.  Whenever it rains, I always try to remember to look for the rainbow.  It's God's promise that He will never again flood the earth.  This type of weather is not typical here in Las Vegas, so it's kind of nice.  It makes me want to put on a crock pot of warm chili, and just sit at my scrapbook table and create.  I hope you are also enjoying this day that God has given us.

I just love My Mind's Eye products.  They offer so many beautiful products, and there's no end to what you can create with their fun and fabulous items.  This little card was made for a new challenge at http://www.mymindseye.typepad.com/blog/ and is based on Card Sketch Challenge #27 that you can learn all about here: http://mymindseye.typepad.com/blog/2011/09/blog-challenge-27-card.html  For this card, I used vintage sheet music for the base of the card, then added three strips of MME patterned papers, machine stitched them together, added a Fancy Pants felt piece which I also machine stitched to the project, I added My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Buttons tied with jute, and used a Papertrey Ink die cut for the word "forever".  It's a fairly simple card, but I like the soft feel to it.


I also entered this card into the challenge at http://www.bearlymine-challenges.blogspot.com/ for Challenge #19 - Button it Up - where you need to use one or more buttons on your project.  I chose to use these three beautiful My Mind's Eye buttons on my card.  They are so cute that I could never get enough of them.  You will want to pick some up if you haven't already.

I thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card.  I also encourage you to scroll down to my Give-Away post where you can enter to win an antique floral frog.  And, don't forget to "Always Look for the Rainbow".

Blessings,

Karen

  2. Another beautiful card and another beautiful thought. I always think my cup is half full rather than half empty so I think it's probably the same as always look for the rainbow. Happy days. Hazel x
