Jumping in Puddles

Did you ever jump smack into a puddle on purpose, not even avoiding it? Probably not since you were a child. Well, I'm telling you to LET THAT CHILD COME OUT AND PLAY! Life is stressful and everyone needs some down time, some relaxation, some PLAY! Jump in puddles, stay in your pajamas all day, eat dinner for breakfast and breakfast for dinner. Better yet,  spend the whole day crafting! You deserve it.
To highlight my advice, I created this card for the challenge over at Ike's World Challenge blog. It's the midway point and crafters have one more week to create with the theme of RAIN and link up for their chances for prizes. I used a digi image from Ike's Art called "New Shoes."
After coloring my girl with Copics, I sketched and colored in the puddle and surrounding grass and flowers, then used my Epic Six and Nestabilities die to frame her. Another cut and I had my sentiment framed as well. I thought the blue trim looked like water so I went for it, adding a couple more embellishments before declaring my card complete.
Whatever you do, make sure you enjoy doing it. You know what they say, "Love what you do, and Do what you love."
