Let It Rain!

The best thing one can do when it's raining is let it rain.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I love springtime rains - they are so refreshing. I also love Craft Us Crazy Challenges. Therefore, I really love today!

It's time for a new Craft Us Crazy Challenge

THEME: Spring/Easter

The Sponsor of this challenge is Peggy Loves Vintage

Prize package – 5 different cut outs from store - $17.50 value
Sponsor write up – My husband and I have shared 36 years together and we have 2 sons and a daughter and 2 glorious grandkids ages 3 and 6. I started collecting vintage cards quite by accident. I was helping with my aunts estate sale and ran across her collection. The cards were so wonderful that I fell in love with them and have been collecting them ever since. I love to get a new vintage scrapbook and read all about the lives and times of the individual. Some of their stories are truly inspiring. Be sure and visit my blog where you'll find some great inspiration, tips, tricks and some free vintage images for you to use. I'm really excited about being an sponsor for Craft Us Crazy and sharing these beautiful vintage images with you. I hope that you come to love them as much as I do.

For my card I used one of the Peggy Loves Vintage images:

Here's the inside of my card:

I used the same image on the inside of my card, I just resized it to a smaller size. That's one of the things I love about digital images. You can make them as large or as small as you'd like.

Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.
