After the Rain -- for Imagine That! Digistamp

April 15?  Already?  Do I say this every month, LOL?  Today, it's time for some mid-month inspiration over at the Imagine That! Digistamp Creative Playground. The current challenge goes until May 5, so there's lots of time.  If you use an Imagine That! Digistamp image, you can win the Rainy Day Fun set (I used one of the images and one of the sentiments on this card) for FREE!

Here's my inspiration!

I used one of the black & white images from the Rainy Day Fun set (the 2 birds), and one of the pre-printed images from the set (the puddle), along with a sentiment, to create the focal point of this card.  The birds are colored with Copic markers.  The sun-shaped card in an SVG cutting file from The Cutting Cafe.  I used some thin washi tape on the rays of the sun so give it a bit of extra sparkle and shine.  The cloud die is from American Crafts, with some pen work added to match the puddle. 

I love this sentiment from the Rainy Day Fun set.  It keeps me going on some of my "low" days.  I had a bone marrow biopsy (major ouch!) on Thursday, and now I'm waiting for the results.  The test was needed to prove that I am for sure in remission -- that there is no longer cancer in my bone marrow and spinal fluid.  Prayers are appreciated!  I should know the results some time this upcoming week. 

If you celebrate Easter, have a blessed day.  For me, this one will be particularly special, a day of re-birth and truly starting over.  I'm excited!  He has given me new life!

I hope you join the Imagine That! Digistamp's challenge this month at the Creative Playground.  I'd love for you to have a chance to win this set. I'd also love to see what you make!  Check out the wonderful Facebook group too, for even more inspiration, news, and fun!
