Retiring: Weather Together

Mornin', y'all!  How's the weather where you are?  It's been overcast and rainy a lot this week, but today it's all bright and sunny and of course that's the day I pick to share an umbrella card.

Weather Together and the coordinating Umbrella Weather Framelits are both retiring.  I wanted to love this set, I really did, but I think I liked the old Rain or Shine one better (even though it didn't have matching dies).  But I do love being able to cut these out with just a quick pass through the Big Shot :). Anyway, I was inspired to dust off this set thanks to the Retro Rubber inspiration challenge:

I've had Weather Together for probably two years, because I think I had it for a while before I used it in January of 2017.

I also used this week's sketch from Global Design Project:

 Have a great day, y'all! 

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Weather Together
Ink:  Melon Mambo, Dapper Denim, Powder Pink
Paper:  Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Thick Whisper White, Color Theory DSP
Accessories:  Umbrella Weather Framelits, Lots of Labels Framelits, Dimensionals, Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes

I like how the background goes from dark to light. VERY nice, Kik!

Not much going on in Texas this morning. We've had absolutely GORGEOUS weather this whole week but are expecting storms on Saturday. I'll take it. It's just been very windy.

Have a wonderful day.

Hi, Christy! We are giong to have it all this week - freezing rain and snow to start it off, then more snow last night but bright blue skies all day and warmer temps coming. Yep, I live in Michigan alright! Your card is so cute! I am using that stamp set right now as well and am sorry to see it retire. Thank you for playing with us at Retro Rubber and hope to see you in our gallery again soon.

Fabulous use of the RETRO RUBBER theme and the sketch too.
Love your Ombre background and the teeny, tiny raindrops.
Thank you for sharing and I hope you play again soon.
