Rain or Shine...

Sometimes I like to see how many card challenges I can meet with one card.  This is one of those.

Here are the five challenges it meets:
The stamps are from an long-ago CTMH set called "Miss May" colored with Copic markers. Although I love the clean, graphic stamps that are the trend now, every once in a while, one of these cute images calls my name.  Between owning Copics and progressing in my coloring, I can now do these old stamps justice, but I think I should have used green for the second part of the sentiment instead of more yellow.

Regardless of what I did or maybe should have done instead, Miss May is a darling image, and it was fun to pull her out again after many years of languishing on the shelf.

Until next time,
