Cutting Cafe/Rain Rain

THESE BOOTS!
It is me...back again. I took a wee break to get myself settled down and take care of things that I had to get through. My Uncle Jack passed away December 6th and life has been a series of weeping, anger, a struggle to understand all things .. In addition to feeling the void of my Uncle not being in my daily life, I felt the loss of mojo to create. Our Inspiration Post for Cutting Cafe on December 19 is from The Cafe's Rain Rain Go Away printables. Such a cute cute set to work with and as it so happens, I woke to rain this morning. Here is my card for the post.
I put the base card layer and the white mount through my Cuttlebug embossing folder as well as the Cafe's printable and the darling little rain boots. I added a CK Edge Punch, and some cute little red jewels for the flower centers. Hope you will take a peek on Wednesday to see the design team's contributions for this inspirational post at The Cafe.

I am really sorry again, for your loss, for you and the family, his friends.
There's never really the right words, is there? But I guess just being there, knowing you've got folks there that care, hopefully is something.
So, I can certainly see the lack of feeling creative but am glad you did make this, its pretty darn cute!

Wish I was there with a happy healthy dose of Christmas cheer! Big warm hugs! ~Leah

I love this cute card - as always you make it extra interesting with texture and layers x
It's been raining here for a few days now and I need those boots in my garden as it is like a pond now!
Wishing you all the best for Christmas and the New year xx
