It's Raining Friends! FMS77



I walk with friends (who stamp!) every morning - no matter what the weather!  And that can be challenging at times here in upstate New York. But we march on through the snow and ice in the winter and the heat and humidity in the summer.   As we head into the rains of spring I would like to go on record and say walking in the rain is definitely overrated!  Your sneakers squish, you're splashed by cars, your pants get soaked, your glasses fog and your arm falls asleep from holding your umbrella overhead for an hour.  And the worst thing about walking in the rain?  You can't pull out the cards you made the night before for show and tell.............

Wonderful card! Good for you walking in the rain, but I feel your pain. :)

I want to walk with friends who stamp! What a great thing to look forward to everyday. I'd be a bit grumpy about walking in the rain, especially if I got splashed by cars.

Love you card; the "rain" was such a perfect touch!

With an adorable card like this to share, you will probably be picking up more stamping friends!

Love it, Linda! The umbrellas are so cute. I think of you and the 12 degree mornings when I walk!

Susan (rainy) said...

I am a wimp! I walk, too, but live on a steep hill.. When it rains it gets slick, so I play indoors instead. hehe
Your card is absolutely adorable!

Linda I love your card! Those umbrellas are fabulous! So fabulous to hear that you walk every morning with stamping friends! I need to hook myself up with some of those!!!!

Jen said...

Walking with friends who stamp sounds like a wonderful way to start the day and I love that you commemorated those mornings with this pretty card.

Now, for some walking in the rain advice. Trade in the umbrella for a Gore Tex (or Gore Tex equivalent) jacket. It's impervious to rain and will leave your arm free and awake!

Love your story Linda - I would love someone to walk with other than my husband who has giraffe legs!
What a cute card - love these fun bright colours!

Linda what a nice card. LOVE the two big umbrellas over the background umbrella DSP.
Good for you walking every day too! I walk around the block at lunch... in the good weather... in the summer... when I can... if someone goes with me...MAN! What an excuse, eh? AND it shows. I really NEED to start walking again especially since I've put on 20 pounds since I quit smoking! hugs .

What a fun card Linda! I love the pretty bright colors! I agree with Jen about the Gore-Tex. I walk my dog everyday rain or shine and I need my hands free. At least here in Northern California I only need rain gear no winter gear.

Linda, this is gorgeous! It's always all in the details with you! I love the embossing, the rain, and the embellishments are perfect! Great card!

Jen Timko said...
