I love LOVE this umbrella die by Poppy Stamps/Memory Box! I hadn't played with my Mister Huey's Mists in a while so when this idea popped into my head, I thought it would be fun to use a mist for the rain. If you look closely, you can see that I used the Hero Arts Friendship Definition background stamp on the umbrella.

Toyed with adding something else to it, but I was just so happy with it when I got to this point, that I decided to leave it be. Except for changing that one last detail near the end (on the video).

I think friendship cards are my favorite to make . . . maybe that's because they're not for any specific occasion–just any old reason, any old time, UKWIM?


I have an extra Friendship Definition Background stamp to give away. If you'll kindly leave a comment to this post by 9pm Sunday, March 18, I'll do a random draw, and announce the lucky winner on Monday, the 19th.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend, and enjoy the video here or in high def over on YouTube.
