Hopeful Hanna!

Here is another sneak peek at the new Hanna Stamps "Rain, Rain, Come This Way!" which is due for release this Friday 16th November. Kristi tells me she will be up late Thursday night so any of you who wish to order at midnight EST can. Kristi has a few volunteers to help keep her awake this time round ... myself included which is pretty easy for me seeing it will be 3pm here for me LOL!

I am calling this card Hopeful Hanna because in this scene it isn't raining and Hanna is with her pet ducks and her umbrella just walking around wishing for rain LOL!

For this card I first stamped Hanna and the ducks, masking 2 of the ducks to get the other to the side of the other two. I stamped Hanna's coat again on DP and attached that to my previous image. While the images were still masked I stamped the grass and sponge the sky using a cloud stencil.

The verse is stamped so it appears in two lines and punched out using oval punch and layered to the lime colored piece punched out using label punch.

The layout of this card is taken from a sketch I found recently on Jen's I heart 2 stamps blog.

Hopeful Hanna is delightful! I love the little ducks hoping with her! That yellow "pop" is fabulous, Frances!

You're not going to believe this, but, I've been working on a Hanna card with Hanna and 3 ducks following her, paper pieced! I did use some old SU! paper though, LOL!! Great minds... :)

I *KNOW*, great minds do think alike! I about died when I saw you post your card with pretty much the same colors and layout! I posted mine anyway, but yours is WAY better! L.
