Enjoy The Puddles!

Yesterday I was shopping in Hobby Lobby and found this cute figurine to sit on my desk in my craft room. I love the sentiment written on it.

"Every Path Has It's Puddles So I Wear Cute Rain Boots"


I was inspired to make a card that is dedicated to my new figurine.
Here it is! I had to put Hello Kitty on there. She always makes me smile!



Life has it's ups and downs but sometimes we have to handle the "puddles" of difficulties with a little laughter. I will have to save this one and give it to someone who needs a little encouragement.

I finally cut my own chipboard letters for this one with my Cricut. I glittered them up to add some extra shine. Sometimes when you cut chipboard the edges will be a bit rough. To smooth out the edges and give your letters more dimension you should sand the edges. I used a sanding block on mine.

Card Ingredients:
Hello Kitty cut with my Cricut using Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge
Flower in Hello Kitty's hair cut with my Cricut using Forever Young cartridge
The Paper Studio printed paper
Autumn Leaves - rain boot
EK Success flower stickers
Bazzill cardstock
Glitter
Bling jewels
Sanding block
