Rolodex Card A Day 116

Hello I am going to try to post my Rolodex Card A Day on my bog as well as my You Tube Channel.
Here is my card.
The quote says; "If you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain". Dolly Parton
Oh so true. We have to put up with some bad to really enjoy the good. Dolly Parton is an amazing women.
Here is the video.

Rolodex Card A Day 89- 115 and cover

I thought I would start with the cover I made yesterday and catch you up on all the cards I have made.

This cover is made from an old Scrabble board. I just finished Christy Tomlinson She Art Workshop and decided that this was the perfect cover for my RCAD book. It was a lot of fun to make.

Here are the cards I haven't posted.

Raisin Boat Challenge #22

Spring is finally here, and the trees and flowers are coming up. I don't know about you, but I never thought it was going to happen here in Wisconsin this year!  Spring brings important days for cards, such as Mother's Day and Father's Day, in honor of which Raisin Boat will soon be releasing brand-new sets. Be sure to check the Raisin Boat website starting next week for these fun new releases!

This challenge isn't only about Mother's Day and Father's Day. It's also a great time to plan ahead for the birthday and thank you cards you will want to send to them throughout the year.

The challenge is to: Create a card for your mother, father, mother-in-law, father-in-law, or really any special parent-like figure in your life. Remember that it can be a birthday, special day, or thank you card -- whatever you may need in the coming months! It doesn't have to be limited to a Mother's Day or Father's Day card. You could even make a scrapbook page or a gift. Just remember to do some stamping.

Use any set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps), but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice! You can enter as often as you like. 

You can rent or buy sets from Raisin Boat. No guilt in using a set for just one project, such as a challenge. We look forward to seeing what you make for those special people in your life.

Here are the upcoming challenges for 2014 to help you get the perfect sets into your rental Pick List:

April: Moms and Dads
May: Graduation 
June: The USA
July: Summertime
August: Birthday
September: Halloween
October: Thankful
November: Christmas

This challenges will close on the 12th of May.

Here is the card I made for this challenge. It could be used for a Mother's Day or Father's Day card. 

I created my card using Foreground Forest and Hydrangea Bouquet. The flowers were colored using Inka Gold Lava Red, Green/Yellow and Pearl Pen Yellow.

Here is the video.

I hope you will share your creations and join in the fun at the Raisin Boat Blog.
