Playin' in the Rain

This is my second post today. I never post post twice!!! I feel like I lost my creative mojo the last couple of weeks. I have been busy with family things and my daughter has now decided that she likes papercrafting sort of, she is creating a journal for her poems using one of the Simple Stories albums because she wants to embellish the poems and the first journal was  too small and the pages were to thin to stamp on. This is her first attempt at any kind of papercrafting so she is trying to learn how to use all the tools I have. She is also going crazy buying stamps, DP, flowers, ribbon and lots of bling/pearls. We definitely have different tastes so there isn't too much I have to share with her except my knowledge and my time crafting with her.

I am now finally feeling like I want to color and finish the cards I was stuck on, they finally look like they have come together like I envisioned them to be. I am so happy to feel creative again!

What do you think of my raindrops? I have had them for about 3 years but could never bring myself to use them until I made the right card for them. The picture doesn't do them justice, their sparkle is so delicate and pretty. I am so happy to feel creative again!
