Donna, you know, you always make these luscious cards that are so perfect! How do you do it?! The sentiment in blocks like that is so clever and the image - love your blending - it is so smooth! I love the brads with polka dotted paper (and of course the gingham). I think polka dot and gingham are my favorite combinations! Rain already? Hmmm...I love the rain but only to sit and watch it - not drive in it. Glad the girls did good with their competition - can't wait to see the pics! ;-)

oh, here's my fav digi man, Jim! I just adore him and this is such a darling card! Again, fantastic coloring and the sentiment is perfect!!

You mention rain in your post, we are still lacking in that department. We had a little water fall from the sky on Wed, but not enough to help this awful drought in our area! Poor Jim would have not be mowing here with our crunchy brown grass! lol
HUGS to you Donna, enjoy your weekend!
