Dancing in the Rain - Mo Manning Duck Day

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

Hey there from Nannyland,

I've been longing for a stroll in a lovely, light fall rain shower...a delightful one that smells fresh with just a bit of a cool breeze.  I hope you have escaped the scary tumultuous weather rolling over us lately and can dream with me of some crisp autumn days to come.

I've been blissfully coloring several Mo Manning images the past few days because my soul needs a rest from the chaos surrounding us and her playful characters always make me smile.  Doesn't the perky duck in this fabulous image look like a fun splashing partner? And no leash required! This shaped card is created from three layers of nested Tattered Lace dies.  I have several sets in different shapes and they are quickly becoming my faves because they are so versitile.  The cloudy sky is from  my digi papers collection and the ground is shades of gray Copics with some dabs of rubbing alcohol (with a Q-tip) for texture.

An uncomplicated, bright, mirthful card was just what I needed today.  Nannyland is always the first place I land when my spirit needs a boost.  I hope you have created a happy tranquil haven where you can relax and express your creativity, also. 

Thanks for visiting Nannyland.
I'll just be here blissfully creating until your next visit.
