Make a wish

Hello friends! Hope you're having a drier weekend than me. It was raining so hard, I was ready to build an ark.

There was thunder and lightning for hours, and at one point, it sounded like the disturbance was right over our house! There were reports of hail, and a home in a nearby town was actually hit by lightning. Ah, Mother Nature...


While it was storming, I played with the Touch of Whimsy stamps again, and made another framed card. I colored all the images with Prismacolor pencils and used a white pigment pen for the faux stitching and dotty sky.

And how about that blue bunny? I made his umbrella fly beyond the frame, and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I'm having too much fun with these whimsical bunnies and what better way to spend a stormy day than with some happy stamps. Hope you're having a happy weekend, too!


Stamps: Penny Black, Papertrey Ink
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Ink: Versafine, Papertrey Ink
Other: Prismacolor pencils, dimensional adhesive, Signo pigment pen

  1. Sweet card, Donna! Love how you put it all together! Let's hope Mother Nature is done ranting for awhile! Things seem to have settled down here in the MidWest; let's hope the same for all the rest of the country! Happy weekend!

  9. Loving these framed cards Donna. Especially when you color them on kraft and make them pop! The umbrella idea is wonderful, bunny looks like he's going to fly away.
    Hope the rains stop soon for you and that you don't have to build that ark. Hugs,

  20. OH what a treat! Luv the wonky rectangles and luv your framed card! Boy, that little blue bunny is sure having fun in the rain! Not so fun for us . . . my two youngest slept through all the thundering and lightning (how is that yeah?) and my oldest was the one saying, "Mommy, I need to find my flashlight!" He was afraid of the electricity going out. Anyway, seems like another round of storming is upon us!

  21. Donna, such an adorable card. Sounds like the weather is very unsettled where you are. Don't worry... I had lashings of sunscreen on me and the kids yesterday. Cloudy, cold and windy today - winds coming from the North today... brrrrr. So glad we got out to enjoy the magnificent day we had yesterday. Off to post process my photos..... hopefully will get a chance to make a card later. Hugs to you.
