It's Raining . . .

 if you did not complete the above sentence with "It's Raining . . . .Men (clap!) Hallelujah! You clearly did grow up with a mother who rocked out to the Weather Girls while you and your sisters clapped and yelled Hallelujah! from the backseat at the appropriate times :) I on the other was lucky enough to have a rocking Momma Ha!

Seriously though Welcome to Sweet Stamp Shop's September Release Hop! Nicole's version of It's Raining is substantially more sweet and adorable :) You should have started the festivities at the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog. If your just popping in you can join the fun by starting there. You won't want to miss anything!

Are you ready to see the latest, greatest, SWEETEST, stamps? Let's go!

This one is super sweet and simple! A little copic coloring, rhinestones, and stickles. Love them all :)

How about a little beach scene?

A little masking with some distress inks made this card really easy to create. I think it's perfect as a lonely little beach umbrella. 

Drinks anyone?
So there was more than a little masking to create my glasses but I think it was totally worth it! I used one of the jars and the cake display from Jars of Sweets before topping of the glasses with some paper pieced umbrellas. Of course I just had to stickle them and the drinks begged for some glossy accents :)

Thanks for stopping today! Your next stop is the super talented Laurel! I'm sure she has created something just as fabulous as she is :) Make sure you hop all the way til the end for the full reveal, Happy hopping!

  16. Wonderful umbrella theme going on here, Kelly! I love that rainbow glitzy one on the first card and the thoughtful sentiment. LOVE the beach scene and the orange color with it. Those drinks on the third card really look dinkable! We must be from slightly different eras because my mom was singing with BJ Thomas', "Raindrops are Falling on my Head" when I was a kid sitting in the back of her red, VW bug!
