I'm Here for You, Rain or Shine!

Hello! Today is my last day guest designing on Joy's Blog.  I want to start this day off with a BIG THANK YOU to Joy for having me and YOU (her followers)! Thank you Joy for letting me take over this week! To you (her followers) THANK YOU for the warm welcome and the sweet comments!  It's been such a fun week! I hope I have inspired you to pull your cricut's out and get them chirping away!

For my last project, I have a super simple and quick card to share using the Cricut Jolly Holiday Lite cartridge. I know this is a Christmas cartridge hee hee but I love finding ways to use it year around! For example, this little penguin goes perfect with My Creative Time's, I'm Here For Your Rain Or Shine stamp set! The sentiment, puddle, and little splashes are all from this set!
I added some Liquid Glass to the umbrella, puddle, and splashes. I left the inside of my card blank for now. Like I mentioned earlier, this was super quick and easy! I love those kind of cards! 

I hate saying good-bye's! So instead, I'm going to say see you soon! (I hope you will come visit me at my blog!) Many, many, MANY thanks to Joy again for letting me share my projects with you this week! 
Hugs, Leanne
