Playing a little catch up here with my posts...so sorry for the long pauses between them!! I am probably like everyone else...summer is a very busy time of year. We do spend a lot of time outside with the girls, so that makes it really tough to come inside & play on the computer. Hope you are enjoying your summer!! We have big plans for the 4th...a parade & fireworks to name a few things.
This is the card I made for my dh for Father's Day. The inside reads "the catch of my life." He really is a great husband & father. :) I was inspired by the waves that Tiff created on this card. Tiff is very creative...you can check out more of her work on her blog here.

I haven't had a tip for a while! For this card, I first inked up the clouds stamp & then I pressed a piece of corrugated cardboard onto the inked stamp to give the impression of rain. Try finding certain objects around the house that might give a cool impression onto an inked stamp. This method can give your stamps lots of versatility!
Catch you later!
