Rainy Day, A Card & A Tag

We need the rain & it came. Fortunately hubby's jacket covers me to the knees & Fritz has his custom raincoat made by my talented sister. We've had rain alternating with sun all day.  I'm always amazed at how some trees are completely bare while others still have nearly all their leaves.  Thought you might enjoy these pictures.

I know you're busy, so here's my card using Memory Box Prim Poppy die, Paper Smooches free digi sentiment & Dots & Dashes die.  Love the smooth DCWV glitter cardstock--all beautiful colors & here I used the gold.  I'm entering Memory Box Challenge #6 (Glitter), Paper Smooches (Gold), Share Joy Challenge (Tic Tac Toe Thank You, Flowers, Ribbon), CAS-ual Chic (Precious Metals), Dies R Us (Thankful) & The Playground (Use Snippets).
Really had fun making another tag using MFT Spring Wreath & sentiment from a retired set along with Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle.  I used the MFT Color Challenge with inspiration from Laura's tag for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Thanks so much for stopping by--I appreciate all of you!

We've had a lot of rain but right now it's dry and sunny (but cold) ... Love your beautiful projects and your photos ... I used to go out in all weathers walking my dogs ... one hated rain but wanted to be out , the other insisted on carrying the umbrella!

Beautiful cards Greta, I have that poppy die, I love how you've used it, mine is still unused which is not good. Love your photos, Fritz is a sweetie, his raincoat is fabulous! Have a great week, xx

I love the photo of you and Fritz. His coat is so cute and your sister so talented. Molly hates the rain and will sometimes turn around and come back in when she sees it's raining. But she will go out and roll around in the snow! I love the way you added the dots to the poppies. Just added a nice touch to them. The wreath is so pretty. I love that smooth sparkle paper too. It's nice that it doesn't rub off.
