Look, Ma, No DP!!!

When was the last time you made a card without using Designer Paper? I know it's been a loooooong time for me. I remember when I first started stamping about 8 years ago, we never used DP on our cards. The rules of the game then were "speckle and sponge" and creating background papers with wheels and random stamping. I have to say that I prefer the DP look, but sometimes it's fun to go back to the simpler days.

I actually made this card a week or so ago and forgot to post it until today when... guess what!... it's finally raining in So Cal! Yay, hooray!!! I love rain. I really do love rain. Probably because we get so little of it here. And boy do we need it. It's been such a dry winter that we're in for a really hot, dry summer and lots of wildfires. Yuck.

So, this is me, doing my rain dance! Actually, it's a stamp set from Paper Pretties called Rainy Day Friends. Sophia and her doggie are colored with Copic Markers. The cardstock is SU's Taken With Teal and PTI's Summer Sunrise, as is the ribbon.

I think I'll go outside and splash in a puddle, just for the heck of it. Have a great day!
