Words to Scrap By Challenge #15

Hi, everyone! I am excited about this month's Words 2 Scrap By challenge for two reasons.
  • First of all, this month's words truly resonate: In like a lion, out like a lamb. Something tells me that I'm not the only one who will be happy for this winter's lion to lose its roar.   :)
  • Secondly, I'm thrilled that Annie is back to host this month's challenge. I was excited when I heard she had decided to go with a weather-inspired direction.
After my initial excitement wore off, I was faced with the dilemma of what to do. I wanted a card that conveyed the joy that comes when the first rays of sunshine break through the typically gray skies of Ohio winters. But, I also wanted a card that would convey a more general feeling of hope and happiness that could be sent to Operation Write Home.

Tim Holtz stencil in spiced marmalade, applied with Ranger blending tool
SU cupcake builder punch (for clouds)
Cuttlebug and Sizzix embossing folders; stash sequins
adhesives: Scothc ATG, Recollections foam squares, Zots glue dots

Stampin' Up! core (neutrals); Recollections white
Tim Holtz stencil in scattered straw, applied with Ranger blending tool
Stampin' Up! See Ya Later sentiment in black soot
I won't bore you with the details of multiple less-successful attempts. I will say that I am pretty darn happy with the final results -- especially those cute little clouds (aka cupcake toppers) on the front of the card.   :)
