It certainly was beautiful yesterday. We had a short little rain storm early in the morning and it tapered off around 10 a.m. It was just beautiful. The clouds rolled out and we were left with big, puffy clouds, the sun shining through them and glittering off of the rain that had fallen. The trees looked shimmery. God truly is the greatest artist! We even had some fun thunder and lightening around 5 o'clock in the morning. I think thunder and lightening may be my favorite kind of storm. I love night storms.... I just sit in my window and watch the world flash and rumble. At my parent's house, the lightening will silhouette the mountains and trees.... So stunning.
The first of five release challenges was to use chipboard on our cards. Little problem there... I don't own any chipboard! Ack! Thank goodness for blog friends and their amazing ideas. Thanks to my friend Maureen, I rescued a thinner cardboard box out of the recycle bin and used my SU! butterfly die to create my own chipboard! I covered it with dp, stained the edges, and added a button in the middle to give it a little more "oomph." To create the two-toned verse, I stamped in Old Olive and then sponged on Chocolate Chip. I'm really pleased with how this card turned out. I think it's actually better than the picture in my head, lol. Isn't it great when that happens?
