Inspired by All the Little Things

Challenge #27 from Inspired by All the Little Things has perhaps the prettiest little photo inspiration I've seen this week! 

I wasn't exaggerating was I?  AND as a bonus, their Guest Designer happens to be one of my favorites, too ... Barb Ghigliotty!!  Come on!  look at Barb's card, and those of these incredible designers', for inspiration!
 
 ... here's how they inspired me today - after all, where there are umbrellas, there are bound to be rain drops!
 
Distress Inks 'puddles' and a favorite Reverse Confetti die set.
SSS Abby's Spring Showers provided the perfect sentiment, on a string of silver!
 
Monday came and went without a drop ... if rain could be this pretty?  I'd never complain about one cloud!

      So honored by this award!

It IS a pretty inspirational photo, Michele! And you've managed to add all the lovely colours on your beautifully watercoloured card! Love the paisley die shapes (as raindrops, no less!) and the scalloped card front accent.
Hope you're enjoying your new home & are getting settled & organized in your new crafty space! Hugs!

Fabulous take on the inspiration picture, Michele! You know I love your watercoloring skill. Pretty scallop panel, pretty raindrops and pretty interpretation of hanging umbrellas as your sentiment! My daughter's favorite song at the moment :)!
