Simon Says Go Away Rain

Simon's not to happy about the rainy day, but he's looking real sporty in spite of the weather :) I paper pieced his hat and the umbrellas with snippets of random dsp. The "rain" was created with a wink of stella white glitter pen, and those raindrops are all sparkly IRL, although the picture doesn't capture that shimmer. You can click the photo to enlarge it, and perhaps that detail will show up better. The image and sentiment are from SimonSaysStamp, and the umbrellas were done with a wooden stamp I found in a Michael's bin for $1.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Pixie's Snippets Playground #121 - use snippets
Cards in Envy - April Showers - make an A2 card with no bulky embellishments
Tuesday Throwdown #192 - Lots of Sparkle

Thanks for stopping by and even though Simon is wishing away the rain, I know that April showers bring May flowers!

I think Simon wished the rain would come to my house. Sure enough, it's here. :-) Ugly day but I think we won't get much.

Simon is really cute sporting a hat to match the umbrellas. Super card, Carol.

Super cute, Carol! And btw, the current Card Concept challenge is for umbrellas, don't know if you're familiar with that one.

What a cute way to do the raindrops! Don't you just love the Wink pen - but I so wish I could get it to show up in a picture too! I know how this one shines though. Cute little umbrellas and of course the pup is adorable.
Simon may say go away rain - but I say to bring it on!

It depends on where you live. This year April showers bring snow plowers in many parts.

I love your sparkly rain. It makes it look like warm and delightful rainy day instead of a dreary one. Maybe that is because Simon is all tricked out and looking good!

Your wink of stella showed up nicely and I love the look on his face with that adorable hat and umbrella. Great card, Carol. Have a good night.

Simon looks very daper indeed! Cute cute card, Carol. And, yup, could see the sparkle when I enlarged it.

OMGosh this card is too cute Carol! I love the Simon pup in his cute hat that matches the umbrellas. I guess we need to send some of our rain to Lynn as they need it so badly! lol We seem to have an unlimited supply but I know one day it will most likely dry up and we will be wanting it back. So not complaining here! lol Hugs

You do the cutest cards with this little puppy. Love that his hat matches the umbrellas. The WoS shows up quite sparkly when the picture is enlarged and this made great raindrops. Like this one lots. TFS & HUgs
