No Football Here!

Hi Everyone!

This is my second post today- can you tell that I am NOT watching football or making yummy, calorie laden food?!  Instead, I played with some things that were new to me. I am not one for fancy fold cards, but I was intrigued by them when I browsed the Featured Stamper, Sherry Kushibab, gallery on Splitcoaststamper, so I decided that a Tilt Easel card was in order.  I do not color people images much; I really only own a handful of them.  This adorable Stamping Bella image had not seen ink, so I used her for my Tilt Easel card~

I found this great Bo Bunny paper in my stash that, when I put my fussy cut image (I know, am I crazy??) up against, looked like the side of an old building.  I love the look so added a 'brick wall' and a brick street to create an old world city scene.  I dug and dug and came up with a very old Stampin' Up set with this great little pot of flowers; it made a perfect addition to the outdoor scene.  
I love this sentiment-who hasn't had storms in their life?  A dear friend once told me that life is not about going around the bumps in the road, it is about how we go over them!  So, storms, bumps, problems-we all face them, but we have a Savior that we can lean on for strength, mercy and grace for which I am grateful.
So this long legged little gal is in a dreary wet city, but she has found one of the simple pleasures of life, nature.  Maybe that is why I am such a nature lover, LOL!
I am entering this in the Shopping Our Stash challenge, to make a project with an 'outdoorsy' theme and also Colour Me...! which is anything goes this week, up to 5 colors.  My colors here are Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Purple, and Green. Great Impressions asks us to use a floral image.
