Fantabulous Cricut #47- Weather Forecast

 Hola Everyone! First off I want to thank all of those people that played along in the "Share The Love" Crawl this past week. There were lots of you that made a project and submitted it so way to go to you all! :) Also thanks to those that left comments here and to my new followers, I hope that you love what you see and keep coming back :) THANKS!

For the challenge this week at the FCCB it's all about WEATHER!  Make a project featuring your favorite seasonal weather (i.e. sun-summer, leaves-fall, snow-winter, rain-spring) I decided to go with some summer rain action, I love all of those Monsoon rain storms we get here in the deserts of Arizona. I used Create A Critter for my rainbow with the heart and cut it at 2-3/4 then I got my new twine out from The Twinery and started gluing down the different colors, what a pain but I love how it turned out. Next I got my Peachy Keen stamps out the Dolly Dumplins set and added the 1-3/8th face to my heart. After that was finished I grabbed my Serenade cartridge and cut some rain drops out at 3-1/4 on some vellum, then I took my Pebbles Inc. shimmer chalk and gave them a coating of that before I added them on my card. I know you cant see them well but that was the look I was going for, I didn't want them to be all "hey, here I am" just kinda there in the background ;) Then I stamped a sentiment from  a Close To My Heart set called TLC. I don't love the card as a whole, I think I should have added a sun to it and I still might. I do love the rainbow though, that's exactly what I was going for there.
Be sure to check out the other Design Team projects and link up your take on the "weather forecast" at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. I will announce my winners for the 10 Clear Dollar gift certificate and the cute and warm classic wrap Tuesday!
