Hey y'all! Happy Good Friday! :) I've been a little under the weather lately. Though, I'm slowly starting to feel better. And yesterday, I stayed relatively quiet because it marked one year since my Dad  had passed. I thought I was doing okay, then when I was making dinner everything just sort of came at me. In the mix of emotions and tears, I happened to look out at the backyard. I was looking at the ground and was trying to figure out why there were 'wet spots' everywhere. The more I looked, the more I kept seeing them. Then, I looked up and out to my right and said, "oh, it's sprinkling!" (if you even want a call it that, really just a very light mist). Once, I noticed that I stepped outside. And long behold, a rainbow was in the sky! My kids and I stood out in the light sprinkle for a bit, to admire it. It brought a smile to our faces and it helped me somewhat 'breathe' for a minute. It was very nice. And that pretty much summed up my evening.

Now, today I'm stopping in to share a card. This time I'm playing along with the current Casology challenge! Such a variation, of what can come to mind with this weeks cue card. ;) So here's my card!

Not exactly sure how this came to me?...And I somehow had energy to make this! lol For my 'notebook paper' I used my stamp with two ink colors, then 'spritzed' it with water, before stamping on my paper. I added the 'holes' with a punch and viola, notebook paper! I then used a dark blue ink for my star image and black ink for my sentiment. Added some sequins, DIY enamel dots and a wood veneer arrow. So, what do you think?!...

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
