IO stamps Spring Blog Hop Day 5

Good Morning!

Welcome to DAY 5 snd the final day of the Impression Obsession Stamps Spring 2018 Blog Hop!

What a feast for the eyes this week!

Today, I'm sharing a fun card using the Puddle Jumper Stamp. Isn't it simply delicious??

I love the smell in the air when the rain is falling. It is so cleansing. Have you ever stood in the rain on a warm day, feeling the cool rain fall on your shoulders? What a wonderful feeling!!!

This cute little fellow is making the most of the rain by jumping in the puddles! It's kind of like making lemonade when life gives you lemons or looking at problems as opportunities for positive change and growth. It's all a matter of perception. The way you interpret something can have a huge impact upon how it will affect you. For instance you can feel bad that it's raining, complain about having to use an umbrella and mope around on that grey day. Alternately, you can take Joy in the fact that Mother Earth is replenishing our water sources, and nourishing our vegetation . Keeping that glass is half full attitude will go a long way in allowing you to have some contentment in your life.

I say Jump in those puddles!

I created the blue and green background using Tim Holtz distress inks and the Party Beads CAC background stamp. I stamped the main image with IO Ink in Navy Blue. I wanted to paper piece the umbrellas for a little bit of contrast and mount it on dimensionals to pop it off the paper a bit.
Lastly, I added some glaze and glitter to the puddle and some stickles rain drops!

Hope you enjoy my funny bunny!
