Raindrops Are Fallin' on my Head

Okay, I'm totally humming that song in my head right now! Forget humming - now I'm full out singing!!! How can you NOT? I've got so much fun news coming down the pipe (Or is it pike? Don't know! :)), that I can't NOT sing! I love music - how about you? I love stamping with my iPod on. My frequently played albums are Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Fergie, and Justin Timberlake. :) (I like to get pumped up and happy to stamp, if you couldn't tell!) What do you like to listen to???

Alright, now to the card. I was going to hold off on posting this card, since the release isn't until Saturday, but since Jen (Thanks, Jen!) linked me on her blog as having samples of the new MFT set, I figured that I'd better give you more than ONE thing to look at! LOL So, here is Sneak Peek #2. Don't you just LOVE her??? I have so many ideas floating around in my head for this set! It could be used for either bridal or baby showers, OR a variety of other things. For instance, it could be used with sentiments that say something like "you brighten my days" or "sending you sunshine". She would make super cute ATCs, too!
Also, later in the week, I'll show you a paint can that I altered, using this set, that would make an adorable gift! Again, if you haven't already, check out Kim's blog for all of the details on her two releases this Saturday - this set and her My Favorite 48 offer! Now look! I veered off again! :) Card! (focus, Kirsten) This is a sketch from CPS (26). Do you not LOVE that site! Those girls rock, and I love having a sketch to fall back on each week!

I colored the lovely lady with Prismacolor Pencils and Copics, and paper pieced the umbrella. Do you notice the raindrops? (See pic below if you don't! ;)) I used my Crystal Effects to make rain. I even splattered it on the umbrella, and have it dripping off the edge! I really like the effect.

Well, I hope that you like this! I wish I could say the whole process making it was a blast, but not until the VERY end was I happy with it! I won't even TELL you how long it took me to make this card! I hate when that happens, but I am pretty happy with the results.
Hope you have a good afternoon! Now, I've gotta go! More to do before Naptime is over! :)
